Stitches Haul

Dinner anyone? Here are the yummies I brought back from Stitches this past weekend (well, it would've been this past weekend, had I got this post up the same day I wrote it)...... My beloved. Everyone's beloved. Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Two STR heavyweight skeins in green. One a rare gem, the other a mill end. I think this is going to complete the collection for my special green blanket project - more to be revealed in the near future on this one. Irishgirlie gifted me this mill end of The Cookie Next Door - gorgeous, gorgeous. And a MASSIVE skein of Woobu in Obsidian - I have this earmarked for a winter combo for the hubby. I'm thinking hat and scarf, maybe....

Miss Babs. She was manning the booth and took my payment for these pretties. A full skein of Yummy Sport & Sock in Chocolate Roses and 3 pretty mini skeins of Yikes, Toes in Lilacs, Dahlia and Spring Lettuce.
Some randoms: A coin purse kit from pickupsticks. I really think Gabriella should be stocking some of their kits - they are adorable, especially the baby shoes, and just right for Florida's demographic (never mind the poinsetta wreath for Christmas). Another brown and pink skein of sock yarn from Chameleon Colorworks - their Bambino yarn in the Briar Rose colourway. And a big old piece of BFL fluff beautifully dyed the colour 'lichen' by Pigeonroof Studios.
Freebies were also out in force at the show. For Malabrigo Junkies, test skeins of their new Pearl Ten yarn. And Tapmouse generously shared some offerings from Painted Moth Fiber Arts. I have both the Blue Jay and Spring Concerto mini bits of fluff (my spinning terminology needs some work, I know) and they are both beautiful colourways. I just looked in her shop and she has both colourways in stock at only $16 a piece. I say that like I know that $16 is a bargain - I know nothing!!!
So that was my haul from Stitches West. I haven't knit a shred of it yet, but, some projects are in FO status right now, so who knows, there could be some handspun soon, or a new pair of socks in the works. Watch this space......
