A few of us drove over to Baltimore yesterday to spend our hard earned money at Stitches Market.
You could not take pictures in the market place, but here are some photos of the yarn I bought.
This gorgeous glass button was made by Cheryl Kumiski who is based in Maine. I need to make something to go with the button!
The yarn that Murphy became enraptured with is by Decadent Fibers. It is Creme Puff. I’ve already started knitting with it.
In addition, I bought a gift for the knitting guild holiday gift exchange at Pearl’s Knitwits. She had bags, t-shirts, calendars, and cards with very funny knitticisms. I have a pattern on order from Y2knit – I really like the shell in this combo and was going to buy some of Tess’ Designer Yarns microfiber ribbon to make it. My friend, who I asked for help with the color choice, already has yarn in one of the colors that I wanted. Good thing I asked for her advice before buying it.
I have to take some more pictures of the rest as the first set of photos are not very good. So post will be continued!
One last plug before I go: Save the children is doing Caps to the Capital campaign. The idea is to knit or crochet a cap to fit a newborn child, send it to STC and they will distribute it for you. Also send a letter to the President so that he knows we care about newborn children around the world.
