Stitches East Recap

So I went with a list this year...and I mainly stayed to the list...with a few wanderings here and there...

I was there on Saturday..and met up with a friend..it was her first fiber event..she's a crocheter..
we had a great time..walked around for a couple of hours....I introduced her to some gorgeous yarn...then when she left I went to work in Mary's booth...it was pretty steady the whole day...I did see a friend who used to teach with me...every year she comes so I was looking for her..
I also saw Franklin Habit again..he is such a dapper gentleman...we rain into each other at
There were some great vendors this year...although it was smaller than previous years....there seemed to be a lot going on this weekend...some random shots...








Jenn of Holiday Yarns did a dyeing demonstration, it was very cool to watch...

I also met Kristin Omhdahl and got her new book..she was at erinlane all weekend and we were across from them...great neighbors...as were our neighbors from Yarn Bazaar in PA....I also saw Judi Weingarden and Margaret Hubert...

So what did I bring home?





From Holiday Yarns I knew I was getting the Black Jack (pink/black/white) as she ran out at the last show…and I also got the Zombie Romance (the sock)…then I bought a Walker bag to go with the sock…zombie..walkers…gotta go together..
I also knew I was going to get something at White Birch Fiber Arts…I picked up Mr. Yuck on Saturday and went back for Autumn Zombie on Sunday
Those were what I knew I was going to get…
Then String Theory had some worsted on sale…so I picked up two of those…the blues..
I love Wandering Wool and that gradient YELLED at me when I saw it…so knew it was mine…
Then at darngoodyarn I picked up a recycled skein….I like to support fairtrade companies…
Namaste..I’m an addict..I have 5 of their bags…was going to get a mini-messenger when I saw the potfolio, so got that instead…
a few gifts and a couple of free things…and the stylish hat round out my loot…

Oh and I forgot to mention I also met Kristen Omhdahl and got her new book..she was at erinlane all weekend and we were across from them...great neighbors...as were our neighbors from Yarn Bazaar in PA....I also saw Judi Weingarten and Margaret Hubert...

And that is pretty restrained for me..those who have followed my blog know this is true....and next Saturday...RHINEBECK!!!!!!!

I haz a jellis. Stitches isn't until February here...and I need to do some serious knitting if I'm going to bring any more yarn in to the house. Or spinning. Or destashing. Or all of that.

Jelly too! Though I have SO much yarn and not enough knitting time so... I guess I'll live. I had such a good time at Stitches last year.

Amazing - is that a yarn truck??? Excellent! Love your hat too!

Paula said...

Agree on the hat. That looked like a fairly disciplined Stitches visit, even if you are going to Rhinebeck next week. ::getting in the jealous line::

You were pretty controlled there :) But I guess knowing you have Rhinebeck coming up helped :) Looks like it was nice and spacious ...
