26 hours to go

26 hours before I'll be at the front doors at Stitches West. After reading Jeni's post last night, I'm absolutely geared to go.

Since I don't normally buy yarn unless I have a project in mind, I'm not sure how well I'll do on the shopping front. I have a few things I'd like to get:

  • Yarn for Clapotis 1, 2, and possibly 3.
    One for me, one for a friend, and one for good measure?

  • Eucalan Wool Wash

  • Sock yarn
    Eventhough I just bought a bunch from Elann, sock yarn is a lot like Jello. There's always room for sock yarn!

  • and whatever else I see that I absolutely must have.

We'll see what the last bullet has in store. Is today payday? Yes, I believe it is!


  • I'm so excited. I'll be at Stitches tomorrow as well. Hopefully we'll run into each other.

  • The wool wash is at the WEBS booth along with some good sales on discontinued yarns. And the Woolgathers booth has Lion & Lamb for $30/sk. EEK! ...if you don't want to subtitute. Mebbe I'll see you there tomorrow. I'll be there over the lunch break.

  • Have a great time at Stitches. I wish I could be there, but since I can't, I'll have to live the experience vicariously thorough you. [g]

    Clapotis is a fun knit. Go for it. I made mine just using Highland wool and I've heard others using Noro Silk Garden that are very happy with the results.

    I'm planning on knitting Cul-de-sac [a vest pattern designed by Elsebeth Lavold] from the Fall 2003 issue of Knitter's with the Jo Sharp DK wool.

  • [Twilight Zone Theme] I have Highland wool in Victorian Violet waiting in the wings for Clapotis just in case I don't find anything I like at Stitches West. [fade out]

    Thanks for the tip Jeni, I'll make my way to the WEBS & Woolgathers booth tomorrow. Maybe I'll see you.

    Have a great time at the show everyone!
