Was it just a week ago?

...that I was at STITCHES Midwest? Hard to believe. This week kicked my butt back into reality bigtime, so it is nice to be able to take a moment to relive last week's fun.

Hanging out in the Kollage Yarns' booth was so much fun!

On Friday, Kathy Zimmerman was demonstrating cables (see her cute scarf...yes, she whipped that up just a day or two before Stitches!).

Franklin Habit stopped by the booth Friday too. Of course, I missed that (I think I was doing some yarn shopping....)! Thanks Erica for letting me borrow the photo.

And here I am having Sandi Rosner sign my pattern of the Four Seasons Wrap. I fell in love with this at the fashion show!

Isn't it gorgeous?! And I think it would be a quick knit! Erica and I are thinking KAL....anyone else?

After the fashion show, SomeBunnysLove hosted the Pajama Party in the hotel lobby! So fun to just hang out and knit! Well, that is where I stayed until 3am trying to finish my Bellingrath for the next morning!

Benjamin had the cutest slippers I thought!

And then came Saturday, my meet and greet day! It was so fun meeting other knitters!

I especially loved meeting Molly (aka MHardersen on ravelry)! It is so nice to meet people who read the blog! I can't wait to see her Bellingrath knit out of Sock-a-licious Heather!

And yes, I know I need to show you some of my yummy yarn purchases....but I haven't been home this week when the sun was still out! So hopefully this weekend!

But, I can announce the winner of the Knitterella contest! Thank you for all the entries! The lucky winner is.....

Congratulations! Email me at irishgirlieknits AT gmail DOT com your address and I'll get the cards out to you next week! Thank you again Knitterella for donating the prize too.
I promise....yarn pictures and more contests soon! Until then..
Happy Weekend!
xoxo Irishgirlieknits

You got to meet Kathy Zimmerman! How cool is that. I have been knitting for a long time and she is my favorite sweater designer of all time. I have magazines with her patterns in them from year back. Lucky you

What a great time you had!! Love the bunny slippers, too :) :)

Did you know that not one store in PDX carries Sock-a-licious right now? One store might be getting it in Sept. I couldn't believe it! I think you need to do a trunk show thingy up here and get it in the stores!! :) :)

Can't wait to see yarn purchases!!

Yuck! This week totally kicked my butt too. When last night came- I think I let out an audible giddy noise. Here's to a weekend with time to knit!

So very jealous! I missed Stitches (South) this year (stoopid home repairs). I'm determine to get there next year, though!

Reality cannot compare to the memories you made last week. Congrats to the winner.

How fun it all looked:)Hugs Darcy

The seasons wrap looks gorgeous! And I chuckled when you said, "Fast Knit". This is what separates the knitters from the KNITTERS HA HA! That think would take me forever because I can't stick to one thing.

Your blue Bellingrath looks so pretty on you! I really like that color.

Yay Gypsyknits!!!

A KAL? I just started another sweater, but I do like that wrap...
