Friday, E and I went down to Baltimore for Stitches. I was restrained, but still managed to purchase some great stuff. I followed my number one rule of yarn festival purchasing: "I am only allowed to buy stuff I can't get at my LYS." I also followed rule number 2: "No livestock allowed in the car on the way home." Are you paying attention mom? These are important rules to adhere to this weekend when we go to Rhinebeck.
So here's my Stitches Swag:
Malabrigo Lace Weight; reminds me a bit of Morehouse Lace.
It was about $9.00 for 450+yards
Habu Bamboo in the color I've named "Metallic Eggplant."
Blue Moon Fiber Arts "Laci"
I forget the colorway but it is yummy isn't it?
It was $48 for 1700 +++ yards. It is going to be Kimono Shawl
Wasn't I restrained???? Well, Rhinebeck is in five days!
Maggie poses with my finished "Variations on Sarah Blanch" Shawl
Allison models here nearly finished sassy Noro vest
Michelle is ready to shape her toes!
Lori is working on a great baby blanket from "Mac and Me" in Blue Sky Organic Cotton
Maggie snuggles with Aunt Money as she finishes a hat for "Afghans for Afghans."
Sunday I was treated to the Sixers pre-season basketball game with Jennifer, Alex and Timmy.
It was not pretty...
Tbone can touch his tongue to his nose Alex has his first taste of Crab Fries
The boys had a "blue" evening; starting with blue water ice...
...popcorn up the nose
...and blue cotton candy
THE DAYS ARE JUST PACKED
