I thoroughly enjoyed stitches west, unfortunately my wallet wasn't as happy.
First are the kits: A mini lace wrap(poncho, I couldn't resist), 2 shawl kits and a cute scarf kit for one of my girls.
Next up:Socks that rock yarn, do I have to say more. Once I saw them in person, I couldn't pass it up.
KOIGU!!!!! Who cares for what, probably socks, and I bought the Carley shawl pattern.
Last up, reference material to improve the knitting.
Not too bad, next year watch out. I think I was slightly overwhelmed with all of the choices. I tried to not buy just for the sake of buying. Everything is ear marked for specific patterns. Now if only I could clone myself. I have enough patterns and yarn to knit this year and next.
Oh and by the way, I made that OTHER purchase too, more on that next time.
