I'd like to take you on a little tour of Stitches West, practically in my own back yard, just 15 minutes down the (rainy and windy) freeway. There were walls and walls of yarns insisting that we touch!
I came home with this Malabrigo Sock in Playa from the Imagiknit booth.
This crazy thing is a Stitch Light. I am a sucker for these contraptions and think this one will be the perfect one for me, finally, for knitting in the car, movie theater, etc.
Nifty Thifty Dry Goods booth was crazy popular...
everything displayed so beautifully...it was not easy to walk away...
so I ended up bringing these adorable buttons home. Vintage Japanese.A Verb For Keeping Warm had a beautiful booth. I think a road trip is on my horizon.
Another possible road trip? Ranch of the Oaks in Lompoc, they do it all from start to finish. Really soft yarn with the name of the animal on the label!
I loved these ruffley wool handbags.
Yarn tastings going on.
Cutest lil' Wooly Wonders
Alana Dankos of Never Not Knitting was so cute in her busy booth.
Did you know Marion Foale has her own yarn line? Me neither. It was very nice, here is Ali McGraw in the booth helping to promote. She looked great.
I bought a two-day ticket and may go back another day. It's just fun to be around so many knitters and wool, books and needles. You know how that is.
