Yarn I bought:
|Miss Babs Yowza Whatta Skein, color: Luna Granite|
I did fully intend to make up for this by buying another skein, something bright from Anzula. I had my eye on Cricket, which- along with the wonderful colorways found in all of their yarns- was super incredibly wonderfully squishy. Instead, I ended up buying a book I've had my eye on for a while.
*OMG after I wrote this entry I went and saw Susan B. Anderson's most recent update and now I totally want to knit the Calligraphy Cardigan instead. But it calls for 1350 yards and I have 1120 and.... I seriously think that I would buy a 3rd ball just to have that cardigan. Is that completely insane? I mean, I would have like 330 yards left, which is totally like a full skein. It's not insane. Is it?
Book I bought:
|Whimsical Little Knits 3 by Ysolda Teague|
Aside from wanting to knit the Not-So-Tiny Slippers for ages, loving Ysolda's designs and needing something for her to sign, I also bought the book for these WONDERFUL Narwhal mittens. Did you know they were lined? I didn't. When I saw the sample knit I just had to have the pattern. Narwhals on their own are pretty rad, but inside of these sport-weight colorwork mittens, there are fingering weight mittens. Lined= super squishy and super warm! Which.... I didn't think about it until hours and hours later but I totally live in California. Whatever. Still makin' 'em.
What I wore:
|Central Park Hoodie by Heather Lodinsky|
What I was knitting:
|Some Cloudy Day by Tiny Owl Knits|
Money I have left:
(Well the other all had links!!)
The only thing I regret is that I forgot to bring chapstick. (Seriously. If you saw me at Stitches, I was probably rummaging through my purse for chapstick.)
I didn't take any pictures there- it's a phone battery conservation issue- but the group I was with will have pictures up soon and I'll be sure to linky and perhaps steal a few. ^_^
So much fun.
If you get the chance, go to Stitches.
