Picture post! Lots of eye candy!
Before it gets too late and I end up having wasted my time taking all these photos. :)
Hartford Convention Center
Oooo, Stitches East 2014 show was fun. Last year I didn't see much that excited me but this year I wanted EVERYTHING. A whole convention center of everything you want. It's so sweet and so cruel.
Did indeed start some knitting up before we left for the show. Can't go to a fiber festival without some fiber involved.
(Yarn is Trekking XXL, pattern is Fruit Stripe Gum.)
I don't think I did too badly with my purchases considering I wanted everything. Right?
A couple skeins of rainbow striping yarn from White Birch Fiber Arts.
Navy/blue australian merino from Windy Valley Muskox Co.
Regia. (Great for socks. Wears like IRON.)
And a sparkly turquoise yarn from The Periwinkle Sheep.
Also a lobster hat kit. BECAUSE why not? (This was the hubby's pick.)
Those rainbow striping yarns are like a Lisa Frank/unicorn/glitter bomb happy making thing. Rainbow. Stripes.
I regretted only getting two colorways........so I *may* purchased have another two the week after the show from her Etsy shop. Maybe. Nobody saw. (Feel free to judge.)
The hubby did his own purchasing: a big ole hank and a cone of alpaca for weaving.
Soooooo soft. *pets*
There were A LOT of weaving samples up at the show. I dutifully took pictures of all the rigid heddle ones I want him to make for me. *ahem*
Snaps from the top of the cliffs down the road from my house. Is there any better season than fall? I THINK NOT.
That is all for now. Super super super busy with bead orders this month. Tis the season and all. :)
