Yesterday we set up our booth at the Port Eglin Farmer’s Market. It is the first time I have participated in such an event and I must say that it was a blast. I’ve spent the last couple of months dyeing yarn, sewing Bento Bags and making stitch markers in anticipation of joining this event. Seeing the display and all the product I created come together was so satisfying. This year the Port Elgin Farmer’s Market runs every Wednesday from 9am to 2pm, from June 6 to September 5th.
It was a beautiful day for being outdoors. I met so many wonderful knitters and I loved hearing their knitting stories. I met a kind-hearted woman who knits doll clothes and then gifts the doll and several outfits to children in need. Another woman I met knits all summer long and then donates her knitting to various charities.
These people confirmed what I already believed: Knitters are beautiful people with big hearts!
