All our exciting plans to film the goodies and the Goodie-makers of the festival but we were strictly Forbidden! so Episode 7 will show the things we got. Next year we will have to figure out how to give those awesome vendors the spotlight they deserve. I will have to interview them off site maybe even in their studios or farms .

SO so Sorry everyone! The World sometimes have Strict Rules…
the funny thing is .. we were never ever planning to film the crowd of shoppers just the vendors with their product against the wall with no one behind them!

1.Global Warming by Suvi Simola on 3.75mm with Northbound knitting yarn
It free and I had the Yarn for it.. I have been strict with my “Yarn FAST’ ..which means not buy what so ever( waa wa BOO)

2. Free form Knitting : “Freeform crochet is like painting – the hook is a brush and the yarn a paint. 
The result can be abstract or realistic. 
Freeform is original design, not a reproduction of another person’s pattern, 
– it goes beyond the realm of patterns and restrictions that usually apply toward our art. 
The outcome is a piece of art like no other, not only functional, but beautiful as well. 
Freeform includes 2-D and 3-D art, clothing and useful items.

I love this because I think it is sweet for Little ones and I would make a white one for myself to wear colourful slip underneath and ballet slippers.
