Oh you lucky girl! RARE GEMS! I've never had one....just go ahead and snag that pretty blue/white one, and the one to the left of it for me - the pretty pink, red, and purple one. :)

Have fun! I'm terribly jealous!

Yvonne said...

You better appreciate how luck you are, we get nothing like that over here!!!

Someday I'll get access to some rare gems. Someday.

Thank you for the eye candy. I am dripping with jealousy.

chemgrrl said...

Is that just the pictures of what you bought?

Virtuous said...

Wow!! Can't wait to hear all about it!!

Rest well!

Marisol said...

LOVE 10,000! I am heading strait over there as soon as the doors open. Running off to shower now and get ready to go!

I'm drooling!

Jo said...

I'm pouting - Blue Moon didn't even come to Stitches East!

Trillian42 said...

Aw, man... they didn't come to East this year, and it's moving to Connecticut next year, so I think I've had my last chance at seeing a BMFA booth. :(

Linda said...

I'm so jealous! By the time I get to Stitches on Saturday (I'm taking the Stitch 'n Ride train), the Blue Moon booth will be almost empty. Sigh...Oh well, only a few weeks until camp! Have fun!!

Stephen hizKNITS said...

Wowee zowie! That's very generous to let other people buy what I'd imagine you'd want to keep all for yourself!!!

I'm sure there will be less there when I see you today.

sgeddes said...

Oh, I love that rare gems in the upper rigth corner! Who am I kidding? I could fill a big bag with goodies just from those photos!

Disco said...

For me it's the rare gem in the bottom right corner. With the greens ;0)

Seriously though, I can hardly breath with the excitement of it all.

Off to do my laundry for the trip now.......
See you later today - yahoooooooo

tiennie said...

That is a lot of yarny goodness!

Zonda said...

Haha...I don't know how you can stand all that gorgeous fiber!!! I'd want to buy it ALLLLLL!!

Have fun! :)

weezalana said...

That's Stitches? I thought you were just showing us your STR stash. ;)

Looks like you're having fun! Ooo, if you run across the new Koi Koi or Guppy, I'd love a review of how the colors look in person!

Sam said...

I hope you guys left some yarn for camp!

Lindsay said...

Oh, how I missed them at Stitches East!! Hope you're having a blast!

pdxknitterati said...

I was so close to being there. My sister asked if I was going (she lives in Sunnyvale). I said I'm hoping to go to Sock Summit instead. Have fun!

You're a natural at this yarn selling (read: enabling) thing :) Can't wait to see the goodies you brought home!
