Stitches West 2013 Market Preview

The annual knitters' feast is upon us! Thursday night is Market Preview, so I previewed what I'm going to buy, and took some pictures to share with my fiber artist friends.

Purlescence Yarns always have interesting sights

Tower of knitting baskets

Knitted sign
Beautiful colors at Ellen's 1/2 Pint
Super cute and sexy knitwear from White Lies Designs
Crochet vest, I can't figure out the stitch pattern, it's not granny squares
Village Spinning from Solvang has huge selection of Japanese knitting books
Webs has the best deal on Silk Garden
They cut up a whole ball of quiviet, again! (ok, I know it's a blend, still.)
I wore my England Spoke which got lot of compliments, or at least it's a good conversation piece. I ran into quite a few people I know, and our knitting group will have dinner together on Saturday night. The fun is just starting!

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!

I was wondering if I would be able to find a Japanese stitch pattern book. You have answered my question perfectly!

Heading over to Stitches this morning with my friend. Hope we will see you there!

Cathy said...

I'm very jealous! Wish I could teleport myself... Have fun!

That crochet vest is psychadelic!

Looks like FUN! When I went to Stitches East, I actually got "spoken to" about NOT taking photos... lol

Jocelyn said...

I bought a shaker basket -- thanks!
