Etsy Denton Handmade Harvest!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of vending at the Etsy Denton Handmade Harvest! It was a wonderful show overall and a great show for me as well! I met so many fun people and got to talk to people passionate about yarn like me.

My space before setting up.

I am 99% positive I took a picture of my booth set-up, but it isn't with the rest of my pictures! Oh well. I brought all of my organic and recycled yarns, as well as a skein for me to play with. I decided I wanted to knit myself a pair of socks with my Fullmetal colorway, and I figured it might be a good idea to be knitting with my own yarn :)

I was pretty good about not spending money at this show. I had been considering picking up some Christmas presents, but I decided against it at this show. Maybe if I make it over to Etsy Dallas in a couple of weeks I'll pick some presents up.

I ended up coming out of there with some mineral foundation and eyeshadow from the lovely Sarah at Simplicity Cosmetics. I haven't worn make-up in years (excluding Halloween), but I decided I wanted to wear a little bit on my wedding day at least. Sarah's products came highly recommended by my friend/bridesmaid/fellow Etsy seller Rachel, so I decided to go ahead and get some. I wanted to try it out when I got home, but I can't find my brushes! I wonder if I even still have them...

The other bit of swag I came home with was an Itty Kitty from my friend Amanda at Little Fun Co. I got a Fun Bun from her a year ago, and when she came out with a line of kitties, I had to have one too. We traded this kitty for a skein of my Sakura yarn, and I can't wait to see what she weaves with it.

This kitty does not have a name yet! Help!

I started a sock based on the pattern I used to do my sister's birthday socks (pictures tomorrow), but I think I'm going to change the toe and heel from the original pattern. It's a very basic ribbed sock, so not a big deal to modify. Check out how the colorway ended up working on this pattern:

Diagonal lines! Weeee! But now I have to put the sock on hold while I finish up some school projects. Oh December 17th, you cannot come soon enough.
