Stitches West 2008 Knotty Knitter Road Trip:)






I and Jeanine and Leesa and Melodie headed out friday at 4:09am for Stitches West we got there and parked right at 10am when it started we were headed in. I saw Vickie Howell of Knitty Gritty she is the nicest person she gave me a hug and was so kind.I also met Jess and Casey of Ravelry I got my picture taken with Jess and Cookie A but I wont be able to post them till I can get them from Leesa as she used her camera since I didnt bring mine.Casey gave me his Bob pin to give to my knitting hubby Tom aka Knaked Knitter on ravelry. I bought alot of pins some for LizzW my friend and I bought the ravelry tote bag from the Ravelry booth then headed off to buy yarn and books.I bought a gorgeous wooden shawl pin for $11 and some cashmere/merino yarn for $6 a skein and Bought a skein of silky merino in evening violet and a worsted weight skein of Azul Profundo both Malabrigo both I bought at the Purlescence Yarns booth they were so nice there.I won Regia sock yarn from the Door Prize drawing Iam giving it to Leesa as she is picking me up tomorrow after my surgery to take me home as our girls are very ill and Tom needs to stay home with them.If you belonged to the Malabrigo group on Ravelry you got a skein of Malabrigo sock yarn it is a beautiful green/blue/purple colorway.I bought and collected 11 pins to put on my tote at the conference.I got 2 amazing books one signed by the author she was really nice Rebecca Wat Knit Tricks.I bought Loop d Loop awesome patterns in it.I bought a T-Shirt from KnitWhits they are so sweet I will definitly buy from them again.I bought blocking wires and pins from Woolstock they were awesome to me will buy from them again:)I started having a migraine yesterday morning so the ride home last night was aweful for me and I was in bed all day today and Iam out of my Imitrex now.We all had so much fun on this trip it was worth it:)
