Stitches East

This was my first visit to Stitches East, at the Baltimore Convention Center. It was great fun! Above you can see my new acquisitions. I bought enough Peruvian by Berroco to make the Tilted Duster from Fall 2007 Interweave Knits in a beautiful brown. The purple yarn is from Valley Yarns to make one of their patterns, the yarn is a beautiful blend of cotton, rayon and silk (Goshen). I also treated myself to Norah Gaughan vol 1 and to some beautiful lace weight cashmere at an irresistible price. I also got to meet Lily Chin, she was very nice. She signed her Couture Crochet book in Spanish for my mom and even talked to us in Spanish. I have been wanting her book, so now mom and I will share it, of course I'm not even close to couture level in crochet (now my mom... I will be putting some orders in)

Thanks to Large Marge ( for telling me all about Stitches East, she was in The Celtic Knot Yarn Shop booth and we had such fun talking about what we saw and our purchases. Large Marge and I met at our kids bus stop, not only did we find out that we share a hispanic background, we also love to knit. I will be going to the weekly get together for the knitting group she and her friend created K1P2 (check them out in the Yahoo! groups if you are in the area).

I hope my next post is about the Patrones skirt I have been working on.
