Thanks to all of"ewe"

On Saturday we had a very busy day as a vendor at the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters Fair.
Thanks to all of "ewe" 
who stopped by to say Hi and who supported us.
Actually it started being busy many weeks ago - deciding what to take, making samples, ordering supplies, deciding how to display items, packing everything up for the show, loading the van, unloading the van at the show, setting up the display, standing all day, packing up again and loading the van, unloading at the shop, putting everything in order at the shop!
Wow, I am tired just mentioning all the above but we had a great day!
This is our 20' by 10' booth which was very full with lots of wonderful finds. 
I guess you could call it a mini Georgetown Yarn shop!

The yarn featured on the green display behind us is the 
Hedgehog yarn 
I mentioned in last weeks post.
We pretty well sold out of all of it at  the show but do not worry -
 I did another large order earlier this week for the same - Fingering, Blue Faced DK and Yak 
plus some lace weight - Cashmere Lace, Blue Face Lace and Kidsilk lace.
The down side it will likely be almost a month before it arrives from Cork Ireland. That is actually pretty good as it is all hand dyed especially for us and then has to swim across the ocean.
Most hand dyed take up to 2 or 3 months to get you what you order - way too long!
I will let you know when it is here!
A special thanks to Linda for all her hard work this past weekend. 
Yes - we were both still smiling at the end of the day - but we had very tired feet!
Now busy at the shop getting it back in order and unpacking more boxes of n"ewe" yarn and books.
Just a teaser - more fingering yarns, chunky yarns, lots of patterns +++
I will post pictures next week of these n"ewe" items.
