Just popping in to say a quick “Hello” before settling in for the evening with one of my new skeins of yarn seized at Stitches West. It was a great trip, full of all the fibery goodness a knitter could ever dream up. Before packing up yesterday, I decided to take account of my purchases from the weekend. I had the luxury of being able to go in and out of the marketplace over 4 days; I bought a couple of skeins and notions each day, which lead to a completely distorted idea of exactly how much yarn I had purchased. It wasn’t until I had it all out at once that the reality of the situation hit me. That is a lot of yarn. Beautiful, delicious, can’t-wait-to-knit-with-it yarn. And I love it all!
My purchases came from the following vendors:
- Becoming Art
- Jordana Paige (knitting bag)
- Miss Purl (stitch markers)
- Pigeonroof Studios
- Sanguine Gryphon
- Slipped Stitch Studios (butterfly project bag)
- A Verb for Keeping Warm (Malabrigo Rasta)
- Webs (Madelinetosh Vintage and Sock)
- Wool Candy
- The Yarn Barn of Kansas (Kidsilk Haze)
I’ll spare you the full skein-by-skein replay, but if you’re interested in a particular skein just leave a comment or email me and I’ll be sure to let you know where it came from.
Okay, I’m off to wind up some Malabrigo; the two of us have a date tonight!
