First, I want to thank all the great customers of ours up at Stitches Midwest!! The weekend is a lot of work, but you guys make it all worth while. If you have a group, or just you and you are coming to Indy, PLEASE stop by and say hello! And thanks again for a wonderful weekend!
Second, Thanks to all the Mass. Ave. Bus riders. I have heard great responses. Heather and Elaine worked very hard to make it a fun time for you all! Stitches is earlier next year (aug 9th) so we will probably start taking reservations May 1st. I will keep you posted.
Here are some pictures of the items that did really well for us at Stitches!
Pagewood Farms Wool balls. I knit this cowl on a 17 needle one night in the hotel (in about an hour). We have a couple colors left, but I am ordering more- This cowl has got to be seen- it is SO cute!!
Dolce Vito from SMC (formerly Gedifra)
This Yarn(?) is finger crocheted. Beth started to wind the ball in the truck when we left the shop parking lot and had it finished by 38th st. We call it the 42 block scarf! Come in to see the colors we have left and for a demonstration. One skein makes a scarf. This is a great project for kids!
Okay- this is my favorite. It is hard to tell, but it is a thread with sequins held together with lace mohair.
If you bought this at stitches for the scarf-I have revised the pattern! I have changed to a size 10.5 needle and cast on only 40 sts. I like this better because it is more open. I think 1 ball of each yarn will do it. Keep posted and I will show the finished product in a few days. I will also show you the colors options (they are still in a box somewhere). The color selection is amazing!
The 2nd annual Indian Summer Pitch-In is just around the corner! Sat. Sept 17 at 5:30 the fun will begin! We will have door prizes and some special deals just for you!
