today is a day of decompression…
The past three and a half day I have spent at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center for this year’s Stitches Midwest event. It was my first time attending, but what a time…
My samples were displayed amongst the awesome yarns and batts of my friend Esther of Jazzturtle Creations‘s booth.I was at the booth too. Knitting. Many a knitter, crocheter, spinner passed by the booth for a chat. It was amazing! Thanks everyone for passing by it was great meeting and talking to all of you!
But I didn’t stay at the booth the entire time, walking around the fair I met a lot of interesting people. I hung out with old friends and made many new exciting connections. I am really looking forward to see what will come of this awesome pile, the ideas are swirling in my head…
And on top of this I got this great bag from Jo from Nantucket Bags. My knitting has from now on a new home!

After a couple of days of preparation and hanging out here in Chicago it will be time for the lecture/trunk show on Friday and the ‘Stranded color work Simplified!’- and the ‘Design Your Own Beautiful Triangle Shawl’-workshops on Saturday at Windy Knitty. Remember the sign up on their website. See you there?
