We just returned from a great show at the Baltimore Convention Center, Stitches East. It was great seeing all of you who stopped in to say "Hi!" and it's always nice to see those familiar faces that we only see during the show. Our booth was next door to Brooks Farm this year, and we did manage not to steal yarn off the back of their shelves. Such restraint. Kate and I both bought some Cottage Craft yarn (as Kate would say, "Yarn with a capital 'Y'.") It's a very sturdy wool in a beautiful heathered brown/plum color and very scratchy. It's definitely for outerwear, I think. Stacy got some beautiful Seacolors yarn in 2 colors for a something or other and Lisa tried to buy the things on her list , managed to get none of them, but walk away (yet again) with space-dyed laceweight yarn. At least she's consistent and knows what she likes, right? It was a lot of fun, and those of you who didn't make it this year, we look forward to seeing you next year at Stitches East in Hartford, Connecticut.
