Stitches West 2008Posted: February 28, 2008
I had a great time with my friends on the Stitch ‘n Ride train from Sacramento to Santa Clara. This was my first time going to Stitches, and I think a big part of the fun was chatting and knitting together during the trip. I didn’t take any photos at Stitches, so all I have to show are my purchases.
My Ravelry t-shirt and sticker!
Claudia Hand Painted Fingering in Oops
Claudia Hand Painted Fingering in Cabin Fever
Koigu KPPPM in P430
Claudia Hand Painted Fingering 55 (55% silk and 45% merino!) in Just Plum
Malabrigo Silky Merino in Stonechat
All the yarn together
As you can see, I am a huge fan of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns. I usually purchase it online but sometimes the colors don’t turn out to be what I anticipated so it was wonderful to see so many colorways in person! I definitely had to exercise some restraint with my purchases…otherwise you would see even more sock yarn here.
In knitting news — I finished the Chevron Scarf and I am 99% done with the Central Park Hoodie, so I should have a couple of FO posts soon!
