I'm home and caught up on sleep. I may even have recovered from the wool fumes. Wanna see my loot?
From left to right: s skeins of Blue Faced Leicester/Pygora lace weight yarn from the wonderful folks at Toots LeBlanc (a can't miss booth for me at any event!), 2 skeins of singles ply lace weight and one skein of charcoal worsted weight from Sweet Grass Wool (Montana grown Targhee wool!), and a spindle from Asciano in cocobolo, her signature wood.
I also bought a circular needle from Asciano, seen here with a new project. It is fingering weight cormo-silk I bought at Lambtown last year. I dyed it in the new Tactile colorway, Dew. I am making up the pattern as I go, with the help of a bit of frogging.
We were quite busy in the Tactile booth. Thank you to all that stopped by. What a good time! I have zero pictures of our booth. It looked a lot like the Madrona booth except that they provided black backdrops at Stitches.
On Saturday night I snuck out of the hotel for a few minutes at Purlescence in Sunnyvale. The poor shop was decimated as most of the stock was at Stitches. It didn't stop a small army of folks from stopping by and shopping. Nice store.
The lovely Nathania. Always charming and beautiful.
Speaking of beautiful, the moon was out and gorgeous on Thursday night. I love twilight; it is my favorite time of day.
Well, that's all I've got. I think I'm not quite over the wool fumes after all. Must be nap time.
