Stitches East 2009
I had a lovely time in Hartford, CT this past weekend at Stitches East. I only had time for the weekend, but that was enough to give my knitting blahs a boost. I took a wonderful all day class with Gwen Bortner on modifying a pre-written pattern. Gwen is really knowledgeable, and able to explain the math bits in an understandable format. As I expected, the patterns I was leaning towards need so much modification that I really need to just write my own pattern. So I'm working on that. I had a lovely time in the market, creating a christmas list and just enjoying the wonderful knitting vibes. I saw some great samples, and am trying to track down those patterns. I made some new friends and ran into old. Seeing the knitwear sported everywhere was really inspiring. And so a great time was had by all. Or at least me!
