STITCHES

So here I am at Stitches East Convention and I am truly grateful to everyone who has sought out my patterns! I am almost completely sold out of Maude, Beatrix, Parthenope and Geyl. I think I underestimated the demand a bit. It really seemed like I had enough patterns but I am starting to doubt that entirely. I am trying to reserve enough for when Knitty D and the City are in our booth on Sunday (at 11:00 by the way!). I know I owe them both mad patterns!

And by the by, my love to Keith from DC who came to the booth (310-312, by the way) to buy a copy of each of my patterns! Kisses to you, my friend!

PS--I think they put drugs in the Socks that Rock, I now have a problem and was so convinced that it was somehow overrated. How wrong I was. I don't think I'm getting anything at Stitches except for a ridiculous amount of Black Bunny Fibers and Socks that Rock. The baby hoodie that Ed knit out of the Black Bunny Bulky makes me need to have even more yarn, and I really thought that when the yarn had it's own bedroom that I maybe had enough. I was horribly mistaken.

STR are fabulous! Not overrated at all. Just off to purchase Maude now. Hope you have some left but great that you are doing so well that you're almost sold out! Congrats! (I found out about you from Knitty and the City)

STR are another one of those yarns with the Koigu effect. You think, "there's no way this stuff can live up to the hype" and before you know it, you've got the bug and it's spreading. Three skeins (or more) later, you find yourself wanting more, more more.

Fortunately, no LYS nears me stocks it (or koigu, for that matter), so my pocketbook is gratefully pusher-less.

Nice meeting you at Stitches!

Sorry that STR thing bit you - it's totally incurable!

Oh please save me a Geyl or Parthenope!!! I'm even happy without the glossy photo yadda yadda...

Do you think sportweight yarn would work with Geyl? I have some pretty pretty stuff in my stash...

I think a sportweight would be fine. I did it in koigu but it's on, what? a 10 needle or something? I can't remember! And if you come to knitting circle at Rosies tonight I'll have a copy.

THANKS for the great pattern tonight!!
I was blinded by Koigu and forgot about the sport yarn I have! I have 1450 yrds of that sport weight yarn- should that be enough for Geyl? If I have to shorten it a little, it's ok with me.

I can then use the Koigu for Maude...

Courtney - when will the new patterns be available for purchase through your site?

Courtney said...

Soon, so soon! Ack!
