I finished the Ashling Shaw and it blocked out 36" deep! Wow!! So if you're a fan of lovely, large shawls, this is the one.
My changes are noted in the Ravelry link above.
The Needle Emporium booth was, as ever, packed with all the lovely things.
In particular, Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles. With the next Westknits MKAL kicking off soon, I couldn't resist picking out colours. I couldn't pick just the four required, so at least I have time to mull it over and make the cut.
This will be made either easier or more challenging when Julie get in the next shipment, expected at the end of the month. Yes, I'll be there, seeing if any new colour is even more enticing.
I bought another bag from my friends at ZigZagStitches.
And one from a new vendor, Alison Ruth Something about the fabric called to me.
Later in the afternoon, we were discussing the Woodstock Fleece Festival Sarah suggested that we do matching shawls in different kits/colourways. We've all selected and the game is on!! This is what I'm knitting with:
This frabjous fibers Cheshire Cat line is so lovely and soft. Craig heard me going in enough about it last night, but it's going to keep happening. I love this stuff!!!
I didn't realize how much I miss my friend Helen until later in the evening. I missed so much that replay of the day, comparing purchases, what we saw, who we talked to. Texting just wasn't the same.
