Mom, Sr. and I are going to Stitches West! Wheeee! This is our first fiber festival and we’re pretty excited about it.
We’ve created the Simply Notable stitch markers for the exchange:
and packed our supply bags for classes:
We’ve fretted over the contents of our notion pouches…knitting needles, check. needle gauge, check. row counter, check. cable needle, check. scissors, check. tape measure, check. crochet hook, check…(did we forget anything?)
Our scheduled classes are Sock Knitting Seminar with Carol Sulcoski and Fun and Fancy Scandinavian Cast Ons with Laura Farson. We’ve done our homework. I tucked Carol Sulcoski’s book – Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn into my bag – just in case there’s time for an autograph.
I’ve heard that the marketplace is so full of yarn and fiber that it’s absolutely overwhelming. It may overwhelm us into a complete inability to shop!
But somehow, I doubt it.
Hope to see you there – but if not, I’ll bring back photos to share, Crafty Friends!
