Stitches West is the biggest show I go to all year and the excitement has been building. I'll be on/near the show floor throughout the weekend checking out all of the vendors multiple times for sure. Here are just a few of the booths that I have highlighted on my Market Map:

I'm taking one class this year, Understanding Japanese Knitting Patterns with Gayle Roehm. Maybe it will inspire me to make one of the patterns in my Japanese pattern books.

Like last year, I don't have a small knitting project to work on during the show. My plan is to finish the last few pattern repeats of my Haapsalu inspired shawl before Thursday so I can work on the edging at the show. We'll see how that turns out.
