So I went with friend Celeste to Yarn Con but never posted about it because I have uploading issues. Whenever I am uploading picture files the gamers in my home get angry. So let’s see how many pictures I can upload before someone asks me why I am making their life miserable…
Okay so no pictures are being successfully uploaded tonight…poop!
So we arrived at Yarn Con not knowing that there was a giveaway to the first 50 people. Since we were among those lucky knitters I started my adventure with a Yarn Con cloth bag of goodies: Yarn Con tsotchkes, small plastic zippered coin purse, small spiral notepad, Yarn Con button, pen, and tape measure. The Fall/Winter issue of By Hand magazine, In a While, Crocodile sweater pattern, Tribune Scarflette pattern, and a skein of Juniper Moon Farm Marlowe yarn.
I didn’t buy tons…just the California Dreamin’ shawl pattern and some Grinning Gargoyle Mink Lace yarn to knit it up in. I also bought some Grinning Gargoyle Daphne in a periwinkle shade called Twinkle. And lastly I finally bought yarn worthy of knitting the Color Affection shawl…I bought a Color Trio of Sophie’s Toes MCN in a blue grey, burgundy and purple-blue.
As far we knitting goes I have completed a few projects. Here is my Pay It Forward Lacey Shawl, an owl hat, and a Norwegian cap for some recently arrived babies. I had actually had the owl hat all knit up quite a while back but I never bothered to sew on the eyes and beak since it was fine detail work. It’s super cute though and was worthy of being completed.
Sorry about all the links but sometimes that’s how it goes…at least I posted….and that is the important thing here.
Happy knitting all and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
