Awww....Stitches West!! It was the best place to be for the last weekend of the Knitting Olympics! Well, unless you were trying to finish a crazy blanket!
I helped work the Blue Moon booth again (I know, I know...kid in a candy store!) with Tapmouse and two very special ladies!!
Ettamae and Cockeyed! These women just make me smile and laugh and feel so loved! Four fabulous days and I miss them already! Speaking of missing, dear Disco, you were missed! Next year is going to be even better with you here!!
Back to a quick Olympic recap....
I'm not sure drinking enhanced the knitting process, but it sure was fun! Nope, didn't finish, but I know I'll finish it soon. I focused on this blanket for the entire 17 days! Very focused, but just couldn't finish!
I did however have a backup plan. The Aerial Unwind.
Buh-bye Tuscany shawl. You've been sitting untouched for years.
You have now returned to your gorgeous BMFA Posh Yarn (discontinued) form....soon to be destashed I think. Just not feeling the love.
Hey, look what pretty sock was on display at the BMFA booth!! Knit up in Lenka! This colorway is stunning knit up!
It was a fabulous four days of fiber, friends, and fun! So much fun that I didn't catch very many pictures! Well, except for the booth breakdown!
The Almighty Cockeyed!! She reversed that big 'ole van into that tiny spot!
A good time was had by all.
P.S. Oops! I almost forgot...pictures of newly acquired Stitches stash!! Let's start with the Socks that Rock (seriously, this is all I got! I must knit faster I've decided! Oh, and only 5 are mine...Valenscummy is for Knittinggolfer!).
