Riding High on Yarn Fumes

A couple of weeks ago, Sonia and I loaded up our cars with all sorts of fun things from Stash and a huge amount of enthusiasm and headed up to Seattle for Vogue Knitting LIVE. We had such a great time creating a unique booth and showcasing some of our favorite dyers, button-makers, books and magazines.

The Pompom garland was a huge hit! 

It was such a delight to meet designers, yarn dyers, and other knitting celebrities over the course of the weekend. You can read more about our weekend and all the amazing people we met on the Stash Blog.

Of course, no knitting event would be complete without a little stash enhancement! Unfortunately, I forgot to snap a photo of the whole haul together, but here’s the yarn:

Clockwise starting at Top Left: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (purchased at the Churchmouse Yarns & Teas booth) in a sweater quantity, Freia Flux Sport (2 skeins, purchased from the StevenBe booth), 2 Skeins of Hazel Knits Entice, and a Gradient Set from Black Trillium

I also bought an amazing new knitting bag from Chicken Boots! It’s this style, but in a super fun raindrop fabric.

Of course, being at VKL has only been making my knitting obsession even stronger. I’ve been whipping out a few baby hats for a close friend, which I’ll post once she receives them, and plugging away on a fingering weight sweater and have finished a couple cowls. I’ll be back later in the week with some pics of the newest FOs!

Happy Crafting, Friends!
