... at "Eplas Julebasar", the Christmas market. Here are Hedvig and me in front of our little shop. Photo borrowed from our good friend Elisabeth, who came to see us.
We followed our own invitation: "Christmas gifts or something nice for yourself". Yes please!
There were so many nice things to see, almos overwhelming, made by many clever crafters. Elin Isane had some wonderful redesign dresses for girls, ZN-design had cool sweater for both boys and girls, and stockings for their mums, Spesielt for deg had lovely jewellery for girls of all ages. The cute pot holders are made by TanteM.
It was not the day for buying our redesign dresses and tunics, obviously. So we had to admit we spent more than we earned... But we had fun, and luckily, we're not trying to make a living from this, we both have jobs we love.
I did sell some of my knitting patterns. I had brought models of most of my patterns, and some were interested in those, but they were not for sale. I was surprised that many asked where the patterns came from, assuming I had just found them somewhere, copied them and tried to make money selling them.
It was nice to meet the people from Epla. Our neighbouring sellers were good company, and the day passed really quickly. One of them even lives in my town, Janne, on Ravelry and on Epla. Cathrine Happy Monster made silver jewellery, and chocolate cookies, mmm... And it was really nice to meet a fellow raveler, blogger and pot holder swappee: Knitnetty came by, and was inspired.
I live in a small Norwegian town. When I'm not busy with the rest of my life, I love crafting. I mostly knit, but I also crochet and sew. I like to make my own designs. If you have questions about my patterns, feel free to contact me: torirot(at)gmail(dot)com
