We just got back from Stitches. It was quite an experience! It was so completely overwhelming. There was soooo sooo much to look at and so many people. I thought that I'd want to be there all day for two days but after a few hours I found myself dizzy, tired and ready to go!
There were so many fun and beautiful yarns to look at and I bought my share of them....
There is like a trillion pictures of me here... sorry....
I was really expecting to see some knitters wearing Tilted Dusters because I know how popular the pattern is. I wanted to take a picture with one of them or something. I did end up seeing one the second day but of course by then I wasn't wearing mine. I did, however, see a ton of people wearing the Clapotis shawl. I also saw several several booths that had Clapotis knitted up as samples. I was really proud to wear my Tilted Duster though. I was so pleased by how it turned out!
Well...you don't see that sorta knitting every day!! Check out the size of those needles!
I love yarn....
Pretty view outside our hotel room..
1,000 yards of Dream in Color "Classy" I have this in mind for the Forecast sweater but I'm not sure if it will work with a variegated color...
This yarn I bought on sale. A whole bag of Elsebeth Lavold Angora. I know that you might think that this is the most disgusting color manufactured but I happen to love it..
I think that this would be perfect for the Lush and Lacy Cardigan.
These buttons are actually dyed nut slices. Cool huh? I thought maybe I could use them for the Angora sweater or Dream in Color sweater.
I also purchased two lace weights. A 100% silk in cream, and silk/wool blend in green. It appears that I like the color green.
I have plans for someday knitting some of the shawls I like out of "Victorian Lace Today".
This is Malabrigo Lace yarn that I got as a sample. Isn't it pretty?
I am sooo excited about these Stitch Diva patterns! I want to cast on for the Giselle Knitted Blouse immediately!!! But I really shouldn't.
