renegade craft fair 2012.

It’s that time of year again, folks. September is here and with it comes the last of the summer festivals, one of my favorites being the Renegade Craft Fair. This is the 3rd year I’ve been able to walk out my door and down the street to this amazing fest (and also the 3rd year I’ve gone with my good friend Maura, which basically means it’s a tradition of sorts).

The weather was somewhere between cool and warm, like Chicago is dipping its toe into fall. I saw some favorite vendors from last year (seriously, I am all sorts of obsessed with ReUse First and bought a candle this year, pictured below), as well some new folks showing off their wares.

Not pictured are two shirts I bought; one for Alex and one for Jax, my old year old “nephew” (the bestie’s son, who is getting SO BIG). I basically had to restrain myself from buying one of those dinosaur planters. I ended the day with some iced coffee and new yarn. There’s something about the craft fair that motivates me to pick up my needles and get to work on a new project:

I hope to have it finished by the end of the month or no later than early October. A new cowl is just what I need to embrace the incoming fall weather. :)
