Knitters' Fair

I brought Starting Point to work today so that I could get some outside pictures. I didn't want to go back inside - it's beautiful out.

The Invisible Project Bag from Hedgehog Fibres is perfect for carrying your knitting.
The perfect project bag to show off your colourful skeins! Lightweight yet sturdy. Roomy enough for a larger project, it'll hold multiple balls of yarn easily. We think this is the best, most versatile project bag. 
This bag is designed to stand up on it's own. 
Material: Transparent PVC. Easily cleaned with mild detergent. Not machine washable.  
Height: 37cm, Width: 28cm, Gusset: 10cm. Pointed gold coloured studs.
Mark your calendar - Saturday September 9 - The Knitters' Fair in Kitchener. I've been talking with the coordinator for the Fair and she told me some very exciting news.

My garden is growing. Now we need the plants to start flowering.

The shed is scheduled to be painted on Monday. I'm so excited.
