in Stitches29 August 2008
…Stitches Midwest, that is! I went with a group from the Mass Ave. Knit Shop (they chartered a bus) and had a great time. I didn’t take any classes, but I really enjoyed the exhibit hall; so many neat things that I had never seen in person, including BMFA Socks That Rock, Interlacements, many lovely Aran samples at the Black Water Abbey booth, and the fabulous Habu textiles booth, where I bought a kit for the ubiquitous Kusha Kusha scarf. Who can resist yarn spun out of stainless steel?
I was too overwhelmed to take any photographs while there, but I did photograph my purchases:
beautiful (and difficult to photograph) Blackberry Ridge laceweight
Shibui Sock yarn
the perfect buttons for the Must-Have Cardi (remember that?)
Can’t wait until next year…
