More Knot Hysteria!


I was home sick today. Too bad this wasn't my view. I think I would have felt a wee bit better.


Oh, hey, did I show you the fabulous goody bags we got at Knot Hysteria! Stitch markers, yarns, amazing stuff!! Thank you to all the vendors who donated!

I finally got a chance to wear my Blackberry Brambles hat in The Plucky Knitter MCN Worsted, colorway Lipstick.

My Jingle Bell Rock Cotty socks had some fun during show and tell.

These will be a Christmas gift, although I don't think I'll be doing too much holiday knitting this year.


I think this card from Tilly Flop says it all.


Yes. Those are straight needles. I am attempting to practice lever knitting as Steph showed us in class. I can be more efficient. I can be more efficient. I can be more efficient. I hate straight needles. I can be more efficient.

Early morning in Port Ludlow. Sigh.

Happy Knitting!

Hope you're feeling better today. That goodie bag must help a little! Your hat is so cute. I can't wait to have a few minutes to download the whole set!

Great shots of Port Ludlow! Good luck with the straight needles (oy!). The scarf looks nice and comfy :)

My photo woes have moved into your blog, so I will have to wait 'til I go home this evening to see the photos. I do hope you feel better.

As for me? I love 10" straights. Too bad Sissy broke my faves over the weekend, sitting on a project bag in the window. (And yes, Sissy is the basset hound. Go figure!)

Ah, good times...
You scored some good yarn in that goody bag, too. Speaking of bags, I love the "coordinating" project bag you've got goin' on with your Jingle Cotties--- you're just special that way, aren't you? ;)
Glad you were able to get some rest yesterday.

Yeah--me and straights do NOT equal love. So glad to know somebody else feels the same! I'm going to persevere, however, with that lever thing.

I miss Port Ludlow SO much, especially that mondo jet tub in the room--heaven! And you are right. The goodie bags were fabulous. Light that yummy candle, pour yourself a glass of wine, and feel better soon.

Now if only they had a pill to cure the letdown blues.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of that Port Ludlow view! It's such a wonderful place!

I hate straights too and I bought a set of 14" from the clearance basket at my LYS just so i could practice lever knitting!

Marisol said...

Gosh it is so beautiful there... I wish I could have gone. Glad to see it was a grea time as usual:)

I want to see your lovely yarn:)

Hehehehe you're so funny. "I can be more efficient. I hate straight needles. I can be more efficient." I'm still giggling. I feel the same way.

Hope you feel better quickly!

Zonda said...

What a wonderful place! Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well.

I dislike them straight needles too...great mantra for knitting with them though!

Oh and that card, perfect :)

Scrabblequeen said...

Love the pics and note card's sentiment. I think I will adopt it myself! It DOES look like your Christmas Cotty's had a good time.

Feeling a bit sorry for myself that I didn't get to see you. But am consoling myself with the trip to Stitches West in February! : ]

peaknits said...

Wow, that hat, those Cottys - wowowow! I love them! And I love that card, I may need to adopt that mantra!

weezalana said...

Cute hat, and check out all those super cool goodies! Hope you're feeling better!

Jill said...

Hope you feel better soon! (Really excited to see a photo of the goody bag treats. I donated the candles and am excited to see photographic proof that they've gone to good homes!)
