Craft Show

This past week was filled with two major deadlines - the large sock order and getting ready for the craft show yesterday. Thankfully, we did it! The socks were mailed out on Wednesday and arrived safely on Friday. That left me a couple of days to crank out two more pair of socks for the craft fair and get everything packed up.

The space we had was rather small, so all of our displays weren't needed, but we had plenty of inventory and everything looked fine. By days end yesterday, our sock supply was pretty much wiped out! YIPPEE! What really helped too, was that we had a dusting of snow the night before and the weather was downright chilly. I think everyone's feet were cold!

The craft show was held over in Bear Valley Springs which is a private community with some absolutely gorgeous scenery. Isn't this old oak splendid?

This event benefited the Pony Club and I was told that 1,000 horses live on the valley floor of Bear Valley Springs. It seemed like most of the homes had barns and corrals with some amazing looking horses. Very fun day!

This week I'll be between sock orders, so it might be a good time to start the spring house cleaning. Let's hope some warmer weather arrives, too!

I am glad the craft show went so well. I am sure there will be many repeat customers I don't know anyone who doesn't love handknit socks.I am glad the big sock order was finished and received safely.
