Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Stitches East 2008

I made my way to Baltimore on Thursday for Stitches East, along with thousands of other knitters. baltimore.jpg

Thursday night Jessica and I listened to Cat Bordhi talk about the architecture of sox.

Karida Collins of the Neighborhood Fiber Company hosted me for a book signing on Friday (thanks, Karida!)

She has a book coming out in March with F & W Publications called Pints & Purls.

I met Catherine Gagnon and Courtney Kelley of Kelbourne Woolens.  They are now exclusive distributors of  The Fibre Company!

Here's what I came home with - not too bad, right?

My very own Jordana Paige bag!  It has some super nerdy awesome knitter specific features, I love it.

And my new love: malabrigo everything.  I specifically brought home a skein of lace weight and a skein of sock yarn.

And now to take a break from traveling for a while...
