Market research

The Gypsy Firefly was last weekend and it confirmed my suspicion that Boulder folks are my yarny people. Add to that all the other clever and kind vendors and it was a fantastic couple of days. I sold every knit item but one and even traded a sweet pair of handmade earrings for my Art Dip Mitts. I had intended for them to be an inspiration piece, not sell them. I hadn't gotten the pattern just right yet but the colors and the use of my handspun with other yarns seemed like a good way to show off what could be done. Now I'll have to knit into the wee hours to get stocked up again. But at least I know I have a hit on my needles. It was usually the first thing shoppers picked up and asked me about.
