This is the beautiful hand made Lazy Kate Basket that I bought for myself at the Allegan Fiber Fest this weekend. Her name is Katherine Basket and she was made by Stefania Isaacson (her husband crafts the sturdy handles). Both Isaacsons were incredibly nice and helpful to newbee me. Their booth was just across the aisle and down a ways from mine and this basket just kept whispering, Take me home. Visit her shop Handspun by Stefania in St. Charles, Illinois.

The socks that you see were purchased from the booth right next to me. The two women in the shop came all the way from Pennsylvania. I could kick myself because I didn't get their names or card. The were fun and sort of watched out for me too. I hate waiting until next year to know their shop name.
I so love hand made socks and so dislike making them.

EEEEHAW! I found a business card that I'm sure belongs to my Pennsylvanian, next booth neighbor who was so kind to me. Go take a look at her place - Handmade in the Hills - Deb Schildt. Her yarns, hats, and woven scarves are awesome.

What a great looking basket! And it is so nice to know that I am not the only person who hates to knit socks. I was beginning to think I was alone.

That basket is a pretty sweet setup! So cool that you were able to get nice stuff from other artisans. :-D
