Passage shawl

At Stitches West, I wasn’t really shopping for anything in particular, except that I thought a kit would be nice. It seems like my friends always find lovely kits there, but they escape my notice until it’s too late. So this time I had my eye out for one, but didn’t find the right one until I’d seen almost every booth in the marketplace. That’s when I saw the Passage Shawl on one of the owners of Heidi and Lana. I bought it right away, casted on a few days later, and about a month’s worth of bus commuting later, I have my FO.

I’m sooo tired here. I’m spending my spring break working on teacher credential work, so ….. I’m tired, and will be grateful when it’s all over.

And here’s my goofy photo bomber. He put quite a kink into this photo session, but we did our best. 😂

Today was my first *real* day of spring break- the only day so far that I didn’t do any work at all.

It was fantastic.

Stitches West 2018

This is about a month overdue- so much for timely blogging.

Sooooo I took my first day off last month, and spent it happily at Stitches West. I volunteered at the Mother Bear Project booth, then browsed old and new favorite booths with friends.

I dropped off Dickon, Anne with an E, and Huck Finn at the Mother Bear Project booth.  Bye-bye, bears!

Gorgeous crochet rainbow vest!

I ❤ this madman with a sweater.

The Steven Be booth is always a fave.  I didn’t buy anything here this year, but I showed off the shawl I made with yarns he helped me pick out last year. 

This shawl was gorgeous, although its wearer was camera-shy.

What a wall!

I love this dress, although I don’t think it would particularly flatter me.

There has been plenty of commute-knitting going on here, so I hope to update again soon.  I am on Spring Break this week, and although I have a LOT of work to do, I should be able to find some time to knit and write.
