Favorites so far from STITCHES!

Wow! It has been a whirlwind few days here at Stitches Midwest! I have lots to tell you, but I need to get a few hours sleep (since last night was practically an all-nighter finishing my own Bellingrath to wear today!).

I have to share a few pictures from the Fashion Show last night because, well, it was awesome! Crazy fun! I haven't been to the Fashion Show before so I had no idea what to expect, and then to have my design in it, it was too much. These aren't even my pictures because mine came out too blurry (I'm pretty sure I was shaking!). Thanks Erica!



I should design something for a guy next year, don't you think?
I was so impressed with how they styled all the models for the show and have more fun pictures to share! Benjamin and the crew at XRX did a great job!

Bellingrath Shawlette, Kollage Yarns Sock-a-licious colorway Blue Mist (this one I get to keep!)
Today was my pattern signing! Another exciting day! My friend Jen and I finally met in person (Jen of Piddleloop fame is to blame for my knitting bag problem!). I met lots of people and tried to take lots of pictures.
More pictures to come! Thank you all again for being so supportive, especially the twitter comments today when I was a wee bit nervous I'd be alone in the booth :) Reminder that Sweet Home is on sale still!
Happy Stitches!!

I went to a Stitches event for the first time this year. It was a fun experience as a knitter, it must be amazing as a designer!

Well look at you all famous and hanging out with super models! So glad you had such a good time -- well deserved I'd say.
And yes, I have to agree that Mr. Model is looking like he's definitely in need of some knitwear from Miss Irish Girlie ;-).

Yay! You look great smiling there with Jen! Maybe next year it'll be Stitches South or know depending on where I am ;)

Congrats! Hope you had fun!

COOL! That's your baby up there!!!! And heck yeah, design something for a guy - if you get to have a hotty-totty wearing in on the runway.

Looks like you are having a ball.
