Ok y’all after this I promise I’ll stop using exclamation points in all of my blog titles.
I took yesterday to recover and clean up my house! It was a disaster, as you can imagine. Boxes everywhere and stuff piled in every corner. Sometimes the piles didn’t even make it to corners. And I was BEAT. Renegade is 12 hours on your feet talking to people! But I went to bed at 9:30, slept like a log for 10 hours, and now I’m back in the game!
So, Renegade recap! Well, on day 1 it rained.
But still a ton of people came out, and by 2pm the rain cleared up and there were a million people there.
So here I’ve got each knit kit in a different basket with a sign describing what is in each kit and what you’ll need, and a list of color choices. I’ve got the finished products hanging from a close line above them.
Kits in Baskets!
I had the tags out, I tried to keep one of every color on the top, I was replenishing kits as they sold. I think it looked great!
Sunshiney Day Two!
Day two was the most beautiful day ever. It was warm and breezy and so many people came to Renegade that the fire marshal came and kicked people out because there were too many people! It was nuts.
Caitlin's Sweater Toys
I was sharing a booth with Caitlin who was selling these Sweater Toys that people were absolutely loving! I swear not a person walked by our booth without picking up one of her animals.
Renegade was a blast and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Between the two days I sold 35 kits! Mostly the new Hello Sailor Knot Necklaces and Twin Cities Ruffle Headbands. People were digging the bow headbands, too! I made 23 of them and I’ve only got 3 left. Holla!
And added Renegade bonus?
Dinner with Jeanna!
Renegade prompted Jeanna from Do What Now?, who wrote this hilarious guest post for me a few months ago, to get herself up to Chicago for the weekend! We had dinner and talked loudly about really inappropriate things. It was a great way to relax before Renegade the next day.
So until next year (hopefully!) Renegade. You were stressful and exhausting but well worth it and I had a great time.
And thanks to everyone that game out! Every time I saw a familiar face I ran up with a tight hug of death I was so excited! It was great to put faces to blogs and twitter friends and blog readers and to meet new knitters in the area.
So now what? It’s class schedule time! I’ve got the rest of the week to put my life together before knitting classes hit full swing on Monday. Holla!
