One thing I can show are these satisfyingly quick to knit Maine Morning Mitts made for and requested by my nephew in Scotland whose 10th birthday I missed last week! He specifically wanted red and light blue stripes and I can see why....very Dr. Seuss-ish I think! If I had a need for such an item here in Fresno I'd make some for myself!
Another thing I have nothing to show for is the fact that I went to Stitches West this past weekend. I only went on Saturday (with my friend and neighbour Lori who did all the driving-thanks again Lori) and walked around for a few hours in a bit of an overwhelmed daze!
I've never attended something like this before....SO MUCH GORGEOUS YARN EVERYWHERE....I found it really hard to actually buy anything with so much choice...I did of course make some purchases but only after a lot of dithering around!
What was even more fun for me was getting to meet the "real" versions of some of the online folks I've met in cyberspace recently.....Jess and Casey of Ravelry were there and it was great to be able to thank them in person...they're sooo sweet and lovely too....I also met the warm and bubbly Mary heather Cougar of rainydaygoods who was helping out at the Rav booth.....and Romi, so serene and beautiful in person......and I was able to re-connect with some of the WEBS folks I had met when I lived out in Massachusetts, Hi again Cirilia (my beret model) sorry if I seemed spaced out when I spoke to you, think I'd reached my max overload at that point!
