Ida Red

Yesterday was A make:Christmas at Ida Red and I had a fantastic time.  I got to hang out with friends and chat with friendly people and even sell some stuff that I hope will be opened with joy on christmas morning.  :-)

My booth

Bridgette and I shared a booth like we usually do.  I Christmased it up a bit for this show.  I had ornaments I was selling on my little tree and three cowboy snowmen up for grabs.  (I still have the cowboy snowmen, so message me if you want one.  I had them marked at $30, but I am willing to do $20 + shipping)

Sunshine and Carousels
We were set up between the lovely Erin of Sunshine and Carousels and

Gleeful Peacock

Also around were

Greener Me

Sneak Attack

We had lots of shoppers most of the day.  It was a great vibe all around and I am so glad Ida Red invited us to do it.  I hope they invite us back again.

I did at a slower point towards the evening get to get up and look around the store (I admit, I had never been there before).  They sell some really cute Tulsa tees and a ton of old fashioned candy.  Mmmm, candy.  I had to talk myself out of a lot of the candy, but I did get one bag of old fashioned molasses candy.  I love molasses.  They also had a bunch of funky accessories, really cool tights, purses, etc.  If you haven't been in there and you live it Tulsa, you should go by and check it out sometime. 

I knit all day while I wasn't talking to customers or running round looking at things.  I finished a couple of bows and a hat that I didn't get a picture of.

Bow for Penelope
The great thing about the bows is that the ribbing is super stretchy, so they will fit and adult head or a child's head.  They are too big for tiny babies, but the black one went home with a three year old and its just like the blue one only a little wider (by request).

Lastly, I want to share with you some cuteness:
My hat plus S&C flower
Its my baby pinch hat with a Sunshine and Carousels pink flower.  How cute is that?!?

Thanks Ida Red and the whole make:Tulsa group for such a fantastic day!

LOVE YOUR BLOG, it almost makes up for missing the Ida Red show. Thanks for inspiring me to dust off my knitting needles :)
