I still can't believe just two weeks ago was Stitches West, and I think it was the best one so far. I had such a fabulous time seeing friends from all over and looking at all the yummy yarn.
I love the Anzula Ladies and Hilary for The Yarniad.
And the Yarnover Truck is always a hoot and a half. Perfectly photobombed!
Luckily I was there Thursday night for some early shopping. I started out by heading straight over to Jennie the Potter.
And I got some of the gorgeous gradients from YOTH. They were certainly one of the most popular booths, and it was their first Stitches! But I also bought some of their fresh palette yarn which is just lovely too. Veronika and her team were so warm and welcoming, it was so exciting to see a new yarn be received with such enthusiasm!
I also picked up a yummy kit from Verb along with one of Romi's gorgeous pins.
Canon Hand Dyes had some bags that were to die for. Happy Birthday to me!
Friday was the big day at the Anzula booth, my Irish Girlie Knits Designer Meet and Greet.
Thanks so much to everyone who came by. You guys are awesome! I had so much fun helping pick out yarn for patterns.
I also got to meet Mari, co-founder of Kitterly. They are an awesome website that kits up patterns and yarn together for you (and you'll see some of my IGK patterns there!).
Saturday was the relaxing day of the weekend and @snbLeslie booked us a spa day.
I was rejuvenated for the final day.
This year the Webs booth not only included Debbi, but I also got to see Marcy!
It's been too long ladies!
Miss Babs and I plotted yarns for some new designs
All the while, I was inspired to work on something new. Here's a sneak peek knitted in Plucky's new cashmere, along with a Miss Babs varigated yarn that would be perfect, don't you think?
And to think, all this fun and I didn't even show you all the yarn!!
Don't forget you still have time to enter to win a copy of Pam Powers' lovely book here!
