First off, I had the pleasure of attending the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival Valentine's Day weekend. I wasn't feeling well, so I only stayed a very short while on Saturday - but I had a good time. Unfortunately, this year, I didn't get many pics. But I DID manage to take a pic of the MONSTER angora bunny at the show. I mean this rabbit was MASSIVE. I wish I could've taken him home with me.
Cascade! We all got 1 skein each of Cascade 220 in Goldenrod and Black (Steelers' colors dontcha know) and a free Steelers' hat pattern! I thought that was a really nice touch!
I didn't buy much yarn at the PGH Knit & Crochet Festival.. but I DID buy yarn from my FAVE Yarnista, Creatively Dyed Yarn. I got some sock and lace weight yarns: GAWGEOUS!
I joined the Myrtle Cardigan KAL. I've started my Myrtle using Dream in Color Smooshy Yarn in Punky Fushia colorway.
I've also started 2 Cowls: The Birthday Cowl (knit), using sKNITches Big Tryst in Scarlet Letter colorway, AND Loose Cowl (crochet), using Stitch Nation Full o' Sheep in Passionfruit colorway.
And as if I didn't have enough WIPs or things to juggle, I joined a Lace Sampler Mystery KAL. The KAL gives clues every month. And every month you knit the clue. By the end of the year, you'll have a beautiful lace sampler shawl. Of course true to form, I am one month behind. UGH! BUT - here's the yarn I have chosen: Knit Picks Shimmer Lace Yarn in Spice colorway:
Last but not least - I got my FREE yarn from the Naturally Caron promotion! I got a FREE skein of Spa yarn in Coral Lipstick colorway! WOOT!
