The Wool has been purchased and the rudimentary knitting mill has been made. I am about to spend the festive season knitting in circles and updating my 'Knitting Nancy' collection for my next big craft fair, 'The Contemporary Textiles Fair', Teddington.
Knitted neck pieces have always been a firm favourite of mine and I'm really pleased that I get to make some more again to take with me to exhibitions and shows!
The process is somewhat slow, but once I get into the swing of things I can find myself loosing the entire day to knitting these pieces. The only thing I struggle with is when to stop making them....when is there enough knitted necklaces? Never, in my opinion!
My next stop is my powder coaters, to explore the idea of colourful tube clasps....how exciting!
On another, slightly unrelated topic, my time hop app showed me what my fair display looked like a year ago, just as I was getting started with Busy Budgie. The image below shows how different my display is and how far Busy Budgie has developed in a year! It's crazy how quickly time flies when you're having fun....
