Stitches East 2013

It was a warm and rainy day when I left for Stitches East this year, but that didn't dampen my spirits any because I was really looking forward to attending the weaving class with Deborah Jarchow that I signed up for.  I left on Thursday morning and returned on Friday night.

The trip was uneventful and the view from the hotel room was the same both days:

I was among the many shoppers and I enhanced my stash, just a little bit, with Eidos from the Verdant Gryphon in the Medusa colorway:

And I managed to get some mink from The Elegant Ewe.  Unfortunately, they do not sell yarns online, but I believe you can call them to place an order.

I also got a some yarn from Wandering Wool:

And some BFL sock yarn from String Theory:

And because this is a knitting blog, let me show you what I finished last night:

Pattern: Pinstriped Socks by Julia Swart
Yarn: Lollipop Yarn in the Life is Beautiful colorway
Needles: Karbonz, US #1

Another skein went from from string to sock drawer bling!
