She's Back ;)

This sign pretty much says it All!!
Yep it's me! Two weeks on the road and all that is involved...not to mention a cat in tow....but....I'm finally caught up with sleep and ALL of the orders are coming along quite nicely....So I felt like it was more than time for me to sit down and write a bit on the blog.

Madrona Rocked!! What a Wonderful show! I got to visit with friends and $$ in the coffers...what more......Oh Yeah...
Stitches West...which also Rocked!!

Unfortunately (my bad ;().... I didn't take many pictures at either of the shows...too many other things to concentrate on...I hardly know where to start. So I will show you a FEW things that I *gathered* along the way....

This beautiful creation was gifted to me by the graceful and Extra Special Angel, Alison Jeppson Hyde
She wrote "Wrapped in Comfort"...knitted lace shawls. I truly do feel wrapped in comfort when I wear it...not to I have wings, the pattern is Blue Jay and is in her book ;) Thanks Alison!

Another Great Gal & Wonderful Friend gifted me with some new yarn that she had just rolled out her sleeve. Trish Andersen is such a talent and her new colorway...."Lavender Moon" is...well, you can see for yourself. I quickly knitted some *Neck Candy* ( a pattern made for Trish's yarn by Shelli at Knitterly)...for myself and placed some Triple Passion buttons for closure. YUMMM is all I can say about this project. Just right for the cool mornings that are still around.
Thanks Trish...and Shelli TOO!!

I also received from ANOTHER good friend...Pat Fly this bamboo/nylon/merino sock yarn. It is luscious to say the least. She doesn't have it on her site yet...but I called her and she said that she has been dyeing it all week in her different colorways and you can get it by contacting her off of her site. I promise you won't be sorry for getting some!

We were treated to a lovely dinner with Lisa and Rod Souza of Lisa Knitwear & Dyeworks!...which included friends Brenda Patipa (great patterns...see Lisa's site) & new friend Audrey ;)
Thanks to them we had sandwiches & *goodies* which included red favorites! Thanks so much for sharing!

We received yummy jams....hey, what can I say...We made out like BANDITS!!!!!

Just about the only purchase that I made was a skein of 100% Kid Mohair yarn from Brooks Farm. I am Wild about this yarn. It's called Primero & I buy myself a skein of it to make a scarf for myself each year. It's a dream to work up and a pleasure to wear.

AND....Thanks SO much to all of you that came to these two wonderful shows...those of you who came to give encouragement and to freely spend your money in our booth!! We appreciate you ALL more than words can say!

There are new ideas a brewing....and we will keep you in the loop!
Happy Daze!!

I'm glad you're home safe and sound. It was so good to see you again. Your shawl, neckwarmer and sock are all lovely pieces.
