It all started when my friend, Lynna, asked if I was going. She said she'd be taking the bus down for the day with some people from her neck of the woods. Well, that was all I needed to get the ball rolling. Next thing I knew, I had a room booked and an airplane ticket purchased! And the next thing Lynna knew, she was driving herself in for the two days, shuffling me back and forth from the airport, and shacking up with me in my hotel room! :-)
While I was there I met up with a designer, Sarah Burghardt from Sarah Bear Crafts and a good friend from here in Colorado, Bich-Thu. Unfortunately, I forgot to get a pic of Sarah and I together...but we did buy yarn together. :-)

This cowl is so, so heavenly in this yarn. I will definitely be making another one for me. :-)
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns - Silk Cashmere 2 ply
It was really nice to finally be able to attend a Stitches event. Though I wasn't able to take any classes this time out, I will definitely plan on it next time. I was fortunate to be able to meet up with Lynna, a woman I've been friends with for almost two years now. She found my blog and we've been friends from then on. This was our first opportunity to meet in person. We vowed we will get our families together, eventually. And to be able to meet up with Sarah was a treat because she's famous to me. :-) She's as sweet in person as she is online.
ETA: Ooops! I forgot to show off the loot I purchased!
