Countdown to Stitches

Next week is Stitches West....it's like waiting for Christmas! One of our knitting friends will have booth there Snicklefritz Yarns(#637) and I'm super excited for her. She's a scientist and the colors she comes up are gorgeous colors. Her blog is here.

Last Spring when we were training for the 3-day walk, she showed up with big bag of yarn colors she was playing with and we all played at naming the colors. She held up a skein and I blurted out "Gnome Running Through the Forest Naked"! Well, she's perfected the colorway (the naked part got dropped but we know he is, wink) :

I can't wait to knit a pair of socks with it.

She'll be there with Pigeonroof Studios and they'll also have designs by Kira K so it's going to be a fabulous booth!


Last weekend I dragged Left Coast Knitter out to run some errands with em and we had lunch at Chow in Lafayette. Perfect comfort food.

We split a side order of mac n cheese.

Sadly it wasn't as good as it looks (not enough cheesy richness) but we inhaled it anyway. The BLT & Avocado sandwich and fries I had was delicious.

Mmmm...naked gnomes. Ha ha! I'm actually a bit more jealous you have a gnome. I keep meaning to snag one at the dollar store for my pot garden.

Have fun at Stitches!!

How could the "naked" part get dropped??? It's crucial. Oh well, gorgeous yarn and a great name anyway. Enjoy Stitches - I'm counting down to the East version myself.
