Yay for Stitches! After missing it last year, I returned this year on a mission! It was a challenge but I waited until the very last day to attend. It was perfect for avoiding the crowd! Sunday means no problems parking, no waiting in line to get in, no waiting in line with the vendors. Yes, it was perfect.
In three short hours, I managed to shop for this year and make up for last year’s lack of a shopping spree!
Clearly, I had a color theme. And I even bought pink??? It seems protest season is upon us and I really need a pussyhat. There’s Hedgehog Fibers, White Birch, Magpie, Primrose and Western Sky Knits in that pile. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it, but it’s going to be awesome, whatever it is.
I did go for one neutral…
…and I got two slub skeins of bare yarn. Only $20 from Anzula…it’s an amazing MCN. I’m gonna send it to my mom so she can dye it! I’m sure she can cover those little slubs and it will be a truly amazing MCN!!
I found a few cute accessories too! I spotted these from across the aisle and knew they were mine!
Now for the hard part…waiting to cast something on. It’s still Finish it February for two more days. I finished my sweater!!! I even wore it to Stitches…more details on that later this week!
And so, for two more days, I can stay true to no extraneous cast ons.
I need time to wind and plan anyhow! Just winding those pretties is going to be fun!
So, yes, Stitches West 2017 was a success! I’m plotting for next year already! :)
