All Rosey

So I’ve been outed. We ARE in Rosemont, IL at Stitches Midwest. Now, it’s not like I was super secretive, but that water tower was just too tempting.

For those of coming to the show this weekend, you may also be interested in this:

We really have no idea what this show is about, but it makes things interesting. Here’s our home for the weekend:

Set-up went better than any other set-up. In fact, we were all done yesterday by noon and we all got a little down time. This NEVER happens. As indulgent as the free time sounds, we were all pretty anxious to get the ball rollling. We had a great night – the shoppers came and shopped. We saw old friends and made lots of new ones. It always amazes me how many people travel from great distances to attend these shows. My favorite of the night were the “Knit Happens” ladies, who live just outside of Buffalo. The are a group of friends who are on a knitting roadtrip for the weekend. How awesome is that?!

The best news of the show (in my opinion) is that our friends from Brooks Farm are here! Woohoo for me! I’ve already cruised their booth and trust me, much shopping will be done.

Time to go sell the yarn.

    Wizard World is a comic book convention… My good friend Sarah Lou will be visiting you at Stitches while her boyfriend Eric is at the comic convention… Perfect huh? 🙂 Have fun!!

    It would be nirvana for me…comic books and yarn under one roof! I swoon at the thought.

    Damn for find out now. If I had known I could have talked the bf into flying there from LA. WizardWorld will be premiering the first footage of the new Batman movie with Heath Ledger as the Joker. And with yarn there too, he would not have been able to resist!

    Sounds great; I’m still bummed that my daughter got sick, so I had to miss you at Stitches West.

    BTW, you helped me win 1st place in “Afghans – Under 48 Inches” at my county fair. The yarn I used was Rowan 4-Ply Soft I bought from Webs during the anniversary sale. It was a square lace baby blanket a la Elizabeth Zimmermann….

    Please thank Pixie for the wonderful joining in the round tips at the end of this week’s podcast. I never thought of something as simple as casting on an extra stitch and knitting two together. It was a headslap moment for sure.
