NoSoKnit 2010! And Introducing Sidekick Bag!

A lovely day, as usual, at Roanoke's NoSoKnit 2010! But things felt very different for me, as it was the first time I was a vendor there. I'll be happy to return to the status of *knitter* next year, I kinda missed relaxing with my friends!

But we had a great time here, too:

I split a booth space with Natasha of Unplanned Peacock and, as usual, had a hard time wrenching myself away from her beautiful hand-dyed sock yarn. This is Frog

(Ok, rotten lighting on that photo - it's blue-greens: spruce, pine, with a very light touch of navy - so I can get away with it, even if I normally don't *do* green)
Here's what Natasha's booth looked like!

(I've decided I love those cubes, and considering the blank wall behind my booth? We're going to begin to climb UP instead of spreading out!)

Mary Ellen of I See Spots Farm had the other half of the front of the room, with all her wonderful supplies for spinning, knitting, and yes, even canning! I was delighted to find her Black Raspberry Fruit Vinegar (frankly, she had a lot of flavors I would have liked to try) and picked up a couple of patterns and some Brittany straights for scarves...

Here's Mary Ellen, herself, in her booth space:

Just for NoSoKnit, I decided to roll out yet another new bag in Nana Sadie Rose's line:

It's called the Sidekick (hmm...cute, no?)

Not really a fanny-pack, it's a pouch (there are two sizes) with ties on the back to snug up either around your belt, or through your belt loops. This won't appeal to everyone, I realize, but it's a simple, unconstructed bag that has no pockets and the simple closure that is my usual loop. The larger one will hold a generously sized ball of sock yarn, the smaller one would do nicely for a ball of dishcloth cotton. You can obviously use this if you're into walking keep your hands focussed, but frankly, this will accomodate any situation in which you need to have necessities along but also keep your hands free for other things.

Inside is very plain, as I said, but sometimes, simple is just the right touch, no?

I hope to have a few available in the etsy shop soon, but if you can't wait, email me about a custom order, okay? more shot:'s been a long day, after a longer couple of months, so I'm headed off to dream land...(I hope!)

It sounds like a great day!! That yarn is absolutely stunning, and looking at her display, I can see why it was hard to tear yourself away :) Of course, looking at your display, I'm guessing other people probably had the same problem!

What great roomy booths, and wares in them! And the bag is roomy, too - nice shot with that ball of yarn in there. One question - how old of a kitten will fit?

Nice bag!

The show looks like a dangerous place for my wallet to be.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
