Stitches West was incredible. It left me speechless (Me? Without something to say? Really?).
The Marketplace was full of life and color.
And on our morning walk I discovered why I was drawn to the gorgeous yarn by Knitting Notions. It's deeply saturated color pleases me to no end.
I finished my Wavelength shawl. It's knit from the long edge to the point using bits of koigu. The finished shawl is asymmetrical, almost a sail shape. I'll try to capture photos of its asymmetry soon. I'll be releasing the pattern after it makes it way through the test knit process.

My favorite purchase of the weekend was my Bosworth spindle.
My favorite moments were spent hanging out with CarrieK.
I met some fantastic artists at Stitches, learned from fabulous teachers far more clever than I, and spent more money and ate more food than I care to acknowledge. I laughed hard and continuously. I made new friends. All in all it was an auspicious weekend.
And Alison? We'll have to make up for missing each other next year. It's in my calendar.

    Wavelength isn’t called Castigation? But I was getting attached to that name. :)
    Purty flowers and purty yarns.

    I wanted to see you! But like I say, at least I had someone stop me on my way out the door to tell me how cool my socks were. Which you’d knitted and gifted me with.

    Sounds wonderful! I know East was alot of fun- they’re moving it next year and I don’t think it will be doable then- wahhhh.

    That color is gorgeous indeed.
    I actually drove past Santa Clara this weekend, I was tempted to make the driver take a detour :)
    (Can’t wait to feel up all your new yarn. Yes, I said feel up, hihi)
