Yarn, Yarn, and more Yarn

Hi friends!  If anyone is in the DFW area this Saturday, 12/1, stop by Jesuit HS for their Christmas Bazaar from 9 – 5.  I will have a booth for The Polka Dotted Pug and you can stop by and say hi.  I’d love to see you all!


I signed up for the bazaar back in September and ended up not making the cut.  There were a lot of returning vendors from past years and they get preference over newbies like me.  So I was bummed for a bit and then got over it.  No big deal.  Then, about 2 weeks ago I got an email saying that a vendor cancelled and I was at the top of the wait list.  Did I want the booth?  Heck yes!  It’s a bigger booth, and more expensive, than I originally signed up for but I can fill it.  Or so I thought.

I have been a crocheting machine these last 2 weeks.  I am going to get arthritis.  I don’t keep a lot of stock for my shop because it’s hard to determine what colors people will choose.  So I basically had to make everything. And, enough to fill a craft fair booth from 9-5.  Eep.

I thought I was doing well.  I really did.  But now, I’m starting to panic.  I only have a few days left to finish all of these things.  And the quick items, like scarves (which I made 9 last night!) are finished.  Now all that’s left is the time-consuming (more so than the scarves) items.  Ugh.  Fingers crossed I finish everything in time.

This is a photo of me last weekend when I thought I had everything under control.  Note the smile.  The small stash of yarn.  Well, that’s not at all what I would look like now if you took my picture.  And, it looks like the yarn store threw up in my office right now.  Dog-cat #2 keeps bringing me yarn balls he finds in the office.  I think he’s telling me to crochet faster.  I don’t even stop him from going in the office anymore.  Let’s face it, I need all the help I can get.

I’m off to finish crocheting some baby hats, some boot cuffs, and fingerless mitts.  If you don’t hear from me in a few days, I’ve gone insane.  Just a heads up.


Enjoy your day & stop by the Bazaar,
