Sunday Funny and My Made in Canada Purchases

Happy Sunday!

Thankfully the weatherman was wrong, and it didn't rain all weekend.  But did it come down yesterday!  Today, though, there are blue skies.

Yesterday was the Etsy Made in Canada Market.  Local Etsy sellers all across the country were gathered to sell their products.  The Regina sale was held at the University of Regina Research and Innovation Centre Atrium.  There were a lot of people in attendance.  This picture was taken later in the day taken by one of the Etsy Team members.

I went to the sale first thing in the morning.  I went straight to The Wacky Windmill's booth and bought these lovely items:

The braid of fibre is 100% BFL in a colourway called Prairie Skies.  The blue gradient yarn is 75% superwash merino 25% nylon in a colourway called Sand Beneath My Toes, and the yellow gradient is the same 75/25 blend in a colourway called New Beginnings.

I'm already thinking of what pattern I could use for the blue gradient.  I'm thinking of a shawl, maybe the Sock Knitter's Shawl?



  1. The gradient yarn is gorgeous, I need to find some because I am seeing them everywhere these days.

  2. You chose beautiful colors.

  3. An Etsy in-person market? How wonderful! Love your I'm off to check out that Wacky Windmill shop on Etsy on-line!
