I can’t believe that Stitches South was a week ago. I had a blast! I met the wonderful Tricky Knits who, as it turns out, also lives in Nashville!
It was really nice to be able to say “howdy, neighbor!” The SGT fell in love with her stuff (big yarn + big needles = quick baby gifts) and picked up a copy of her book, Welcoming Home Baby the Handcrafted Way which she was kind enough to sign for us both. My niece Katie will be getting a something knitted from that book, but since she’s a regular reader (Hi!) I won’t be blogging about it for a while.
The colors are a bit deeper than the photo (the lighting there gave everything a weird yellow color to my photos) but man, was it so soft! Odessa, you have some serious skills.
I did do some stash enhancement, but not a whole lot. I’m actually really proud that I only purchased things that I needed (like blocking wires!) rather than buying everything that piqued my interested. Click on the photos to be taken to their Ravelry page for more info. And yes, this is all the yarn I bought. Just three skeins (well two and a half) of yarn and they’ve all been used up.
