It's Hand Knit Friday! What hand knits are you wearing today?

I'm wearing socks made with yarn that I dyed using the Machine Knitting to Dye For technique.

It's Hand Knit Friday and the debut of the Must Have Cardigan! This is a great sweater pattern from Patons and it's perfect match for Valley Yarns Northampton from WEBS. I lengthened the sleeve ribbing so they could be folded back, but I could have added one more inch. I also lengthened the body and mirrored the cables.

Stitches West 2017


Stitches West 2017

The market preview & first day of Stitches West 2017 is over and my feet hurt. lol

I bought a few things last night:


Purchases

And this little ditty--it's a USB stick with 3 of Jean Frost's books on it. Retail price is $35 (a bargain!) and this weekend they're marking the stitchips down 20%. Stop by the XRX booth.

I spent the morning working the registration desk with Joyce, Sallie, and Brenda.


Joyce and me.

The rest of the day was left for browsing the show floor and sewing the Must Have Cardigan.

Tomorrow I'll be in the It's A Swing Thing class with Barry Klein.

It's Stitches West 2017!



Stitches West starts today and I'm just now printing out the market map. Yeah, I'm not ready for this. Usually by now I have the map marked with the vendors I need to see and have a list of must-buys. Not so this year. I have a few plans--working registration on Friday and Barry Klein's "It's a Swing Thing" class on Saturday--but other than that I'm going for the fun of it.

Here are links to Erin's map to help you navigate the market floor and a discount coupon:
