She also gardens, bakes, reads and exercises. But mostly Mo Knits.

Stitches West 2009:

I wanted:
Yarn for a Clapotis shawl. Got it. Hand dyed. Yay.
Shawl Pin. Got it. Hand carved cherry wood. Rustic. Pretty.

Wish I had bought: quiviut (too spendy), funky sock yarn (nothing grabbed me), square needles (I’m curious), a skein each of the soft brown and soft orange yarn from a verb for keeping warm (like those lovely sample mittens, but there wasn’t enough yardage, and they didn’t have more…boo hoo).

The train ride with friends was the best! You all are SO MUCH FUN!

The marketplace was so enormous. OK, it was too enormous. I didn’t even see it all. It was as exciting to look at all the various booths as it was to find something to buy.

I’m already looking forward to Stitches 2010!

I'm an addict. I obsessively shop for yarn and pattern books, then knit like a fiend. When I'm not knitting something out of someone else's head, I'm thinking up designs of my own. When I grow up I want to be Elizabeth Zimmermann. On the rare occasions I'm not knitting, or thinking about knitting, or shopping for knitting, I sometimes bake, cook, garden, read, and exercise. The exercise is not by choice. I only do it to manage pain from a herniated disc. Exercise for me works better than Vicodin, and I highly recommend it.
