Since I was in Tennessee visiting my Folks and picking up Bree, I didn't get to go to Stitches this year - from what Sarah, Heather, Cindy and Joy emailed about their purchases, maybe I'm glad I didn't!
But, so much for that - Mom took me to a wonderful yarn store in Paducah, KY - if you get down in that area - it is a MUST stop and shop! The name is "With Ewe In Mind" and the owner, Maureen, is a DOLL! (In fact, we were there on Friday and she was packing up to hit the train to go to Stitches - how's that for Karma)
So, I did my Stitches Stash busting there...
Bree picked out this WONDERFUL Lorna's Laces in Swirl (Rainbow) Yarn in a chunky weight for her purse:
And then she spied this pattern which she "just had to have" - heee - and we picked out some lucious yarn - Plymouth, Baby Alpaca, Worsted Glow yarn - has a little metallic thread running thru it - but soft as soft can be -
I picked out 2 balls of Cascade Fixation in a "blue jean" color (9030) - you'd think after the Jaywalkers, I'd never want to see that color way again -
And I also picked up the Mari "Oregon Sweater" pattern - that has a neat ribbed yoke detail that will be nice - Haven't figured out what type of yarn yet.. (Gee, I have to SHOP for yarn - oh darn)
So, even though, I wasn't there with my knitting enablers in person, we were together in heart - LOL!
