stitches west 2011

February 25, 2011

once again, i helped out at the webs booth at stitches west this year! it was a good break from my office job, and i only ended up buying 3 braids of fiber – one from girl on the rocks, and two from pigeonroof studios. theirs is the one yarn/fiber booth that i got to this year, and i’m fine with that.

stitches west 11 purchases

these all have projects assigned to them already, too! the yellow in the back (falkland from girl on the rocks in “peanut butter cup”) is destined to be a fractally spun 2-ply worsted weight, to turn into mittens, the green (merino from pigeonroof studios in “frond”) will be split down the middle and spun as a 2-ply sport weight for a hat, and the blue (superwash merino from pigeonroof in what i think is “influence” but i don’t have it with me) will be navajo plied as a fingering weight for socks! that’s why i allowed myself to make all of these purchases.

i also bought a vintage lace pendant from nifty thrifty dry goods, of which i don’t have a picture. but i predict it will be getting a good amount of use!
