the last frantic prepping for the field trip pop-up shop during art crawl weekend in hamilton is on & every second i must cram in all the knitting i can. sometimes even i forget just how time consuming hand made really is, so much hard work. i was really thrilled to see this blog post on beaux mondes, & i'm so pleased that stephanie included the welland merino sweater amongst the items included to promote the field trip: pop up shop on james north in just two days. i love the photos, & especially love the styling, & modeling, its gorgeous. don't forget to come by the field trip pop-up shop, even just to say hi, & also to those who made the trek to make this happen, the girls of victoire (from ottawa), robber (from toronto), fieldguided (toronto), also preloved (from toronto & montreal) & we are just across from white elephant.

i've been killing it trying to get as many items knit, sewn & dyed in a small amount of time for the event. as you can see i'm a real procrastinator about seams & sewing in the threads, its my least favorite part concerning knitting. in contrast, i loved sewing on the machine for a change & dying those totes, as each one came out so unique, which is the best part. sadly, i have a few less to sell at the pop-up shop after some online sales, but i promise to be getting more fabric for those totes, just in time for spring & summer. missing too on this rack, some sold items & lent out items for the photos. i hope you can spot the shopping bags of plain cotton & ombre dyed at the end, a gift for those purchasing a knitted item.
these photos from the beehive craft collective blog reveal the lovely space in construction & we'll be in there! see everyone soon & please introduce yourselves, i'ii be a bit of a shy mess. please mark your calendars.
