The mind is a fabulous thing to change

So the plans of the other day fell by the wayside. I spotted this gorgeous KnitWitch yarn in my stash and I realized that it needed to be the shawlette for Stitches South. Partly because I bought it last year at Stitches South, but mostly because it’s amazing and gorgeous. So now a new design is in progress. Must knit very fast to get it done in time though!

When I went to cast on for this new design today I realized I could not find a single pair of size 7 needles. This was a sadness. So I had to dig out all my needles and go searching and organizing.


I did find a pair of sevens. Actually I found about six different pairs of sevens! I did find out that the second size 7 from my Hiya interchangeable set is definitely gone for good. So I’m hoping that someone at Stitches will be selling those!

And yes I am all Stitches all the time right now. Basically it’s my girl’s vacation. Me and two of my best friends set out at 5am for Atlanta. Why 5am? Because that’s when the Starbucks opens of course! And then we will drive up there with a van about half full of needles and yarn. We will knit and meet other internet friends and buy yarn and go to a PJ party and sleep in very comfy hotel beds and just really relax. And then we’ll drive home with a van completely full of needles and yarn. Admit it, you’re jealous. Well jealous or you think I’m crazy. I’m good with either.

    Don’t forget to stop by the SG booth and say hi to Noelle! Let her know who you are – she’s knit Renita!

    smile… my road trips are also timed to start when the starbucks opens! (unfortunately 5:30 am is the earliest around here…and usually it’s not til 6) – safe travels and have fun!!

    I *am* very jealous. Sigh. I need some knitter friends around these parts. The closest I’ve got is my mum, who is an avid acrylic fan and sees no point in acquiring new patterns when she bought one in 1987 that is JUST FINE (she knitted my sister that cardigan last year, didn’t go over well), and my aunt, who gets the yarn thing but only likes the crochet.
    Also, that green yarn is absolutely swoon-worthy. I don’t know if I’m more jealous about that, the knitting roadtrip or the actual event.

    Gorgeous yarn! I love blues and greens together.
