fan girl @ Stitch-n-Pitch

Last night a whole slew of knitters attended Stitch-n-Pitch for the Washington Nationals vs Florida Marlins game. Part of the fun was being able to oogle yarns and supplies in a convention room set up for the event. Compared to last year, last night's event was light years better!

(pics to come!)

One of the highlights was knit designer Ann Weaver being in attendance! She was uber nice *and* she wore one of the most coveted sweaters out there... Oranje.

Like I said.... more pics to come!

Too much fun!

Last weekend was the annual Maryland Sheep and Wool gathering, and for the 2nd year in a row, I was lucky enough to go!

Some buttons I liked :)

A gorgeous lace shawl. The maker improvised the design!

Wool and lace from Wales

This is what $450 lace knitting looks like

Spinning at Pluckyfluff. Spinning on Majacrafts was much fun!

...and more sheep!

My booty!

just sayin'

Get your own knuckles at the knuckle tattoo gun.
