Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here

FO Friday…………

NOT! No FO’s this week, but I’m close. My WIP from Wednesday is coming along.

However, I did go to Stitches West last night and today and have some new yarn and patterns to share!

The Haul

Two Skeins of Louret Gems (Sport) (Yellow) ON SALE (two for less than the price of one)

Two Skeins Madelinetosh Fingering (different colors) (Tart and I think the other one is Alizarin) 20% off at WEBS

Two Skeins Berroco Boboli (multi with irredescent colors) 20% off  at WEBS

One Ball Crazy Zauberball (different shades of blue)

Two Skeins Skye by Trendsetter yarns (shiney red) ON SALE

One Skein Alpaca-Wool-Mohair Fingering from Brooks Farms (blue, green, grey) ON SALE

Texelle Shawl Pattern from Phydeaux Designs NO SALES TAX on cash purchase

Yvonne Pattern from CoCo Knits NO SALES TAX on cash purchase

I have yarn in my stash for the Yvonne sweater and I might go back to Stitches Sunday afternoon for a Madelinetosh DK for the Texelle.

Except for the Madelintosh, the LYS’s I go to don’t carry the other yarns and I got the Mad 20% off because my purchase was over $60!

You have to know your yarn prices and the quality you’re buying. I am still surprised that a skein of  hand dyed sock yarn can cost an average of $25. I’m not complaining, just saying! I did tell DH that I “saved” money by shopping at Stitches since most items were on sale, I got a discount or I saved the sales tax (8.25%).

I also took a  one hour Market Class on W&T short rows. I’ve watched the video on Youtube but just couldn’t get it. Now I can do my Just enough Ruffles Scarf if I get brave enough to CO 300 stitches that doubles to 600 stitches at some point!

I did have a 1 degree of separation moment this week. My friend Melia who lives in Austria (the one I sent the knitted headband to, see last weeks FO Friday) told me when I posted on Facebook that I was going to Stitches that her friend Heatherly would be there as a vendor. Well, today I stopped by and said hi Heatherly. What a small world!

The weather here is BEAUTIFUL. It usually rains the weekend of Stitches and yesterday and today were in the mid 70’s. Tomorrow will be cooler, but just saying………..

Not sure this post will get up tonight as I can’t seem to get on Raverlry Forums, Patterns or Yarns. Sometimes that happens and I just have to wait.

Have a good weekend everyone and happy knitting.
