Stitches East: Year 2 Recap
Posted by Amber on October 16, 2007
I had been seriously doubting that I’d go to Stitches this year, but then a whole big host of things drove me to it. Actually, my blogless friend Stephanie drove me to it, but in a different way.
Traffic getting out of DC was a horrible, horrible mess. It took us two whole hours to get from Stephanie’s house in Arlington to the parking lot in Baltimore. It’s like, Baltimore is taunting me even when I’m not going for work everyday!
Anyway, much fun was had, and much yarn was purchased:
Tess Designer Yarns: Superwash Merino
560 yards / hank x 2 hanks. I cast on for Wicked on Sunday morning. My hands are turning blueish purple from the bleeding dye.
Socks that Rock Lightweight – Prove it All Night
Socks that Rock Lightweight – Azurite
Koigu # 3005 (from Rosie’s Yarn Cellar)
Koigu #305 (from Rosie’s Yarn Cellar)
Lorna’s Laces Shepard Sock – Flamingo Stripe (From Rosie’s Yarn Cellar. Do you think I have a favorite booth?)
Black Bunny Fibers 100% Merino Superwash Sock in “Splendid” (from … Rosie’s!)
Just Our Yarn – Traveler
A slightly more color accurate photo.
Ellen’s Half Pint Farm (.com!) 50/50 superwash/tencel blend sock yarn. It’s more candy-grape in real life
Hand Painted Knitting Yarns.com 50/50 merino tencel blend sock in “Fidelio”
Maple Creek Farm (.com) 50/50 wool bamboo in “purple”
… so as you can see, I’m going to be making socks for a while!
