Stitches West

So I'm a little late blogging about this event due to unforseen circumstances. It was last weekend and it was awesome! Minus missing a friend who was in town for the event because I had to work. I shouldn't complain, its something bring in a small amount of money while I look for full-time employment. Being unemployed sucks. don't want to hear my sob story. You want to see the loot. So I present to you:

The loot! My purchases consisted of 13 skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino in Amoroso to make a sweater (only one is pictured, its on the far right), 2 skeins STR lightweight, one Mill Ends and the other in Lenore, a skein of Schafer Yarns new yarn Nichole, a skein of Yummy sock yarn from Miss Babs, a stocking kit for the Marlaina stockings by White Lies Designs, and a ton of patterns. But the highlight of my purchases was:

A Jordana Paige bag! This is the Bella and I've been using it all this week and I absolutely love it. Its great for small projects like the socks I've been carrying around (pictures of those to come). While I was visiting Jordana's booth, I picked up one of her patterns for Landon. I have some Cascade 220 in my stash that will work excellently for it. But otherwise that was it. Photography in the market isn't allowed so no market photos. I didn't buy as much yarn as in previous years, but that's ok, I've still got tons that I need to get thorugh and my goal this year is to reduce some of my stash. I should have a few goodies coming in the mail soon that I'll be sure to share, as well as the projects I'm currently working on. Keeping up with blogging can be tiresome!
