I didn’t have much time to be at Stitches West this year, just ran over during my lunch hour. But for that 1 hour I had so much fun! I got some buttons for my owlet sweater, some Tosh DK (georgeous!) in “oxblood” and the highlight of the show was running into Alana Dakis, designer, blogger and podcaster, from http://www.nevernotknitting.com/. She’s one of my favorite designers and her blog definitely keeps me up to date on the new yarns and patterns that I must have! Now I just need to track down Ysolda Teague and I’ll have met all of my favorite designers 🙂 Also, she interviewed one of my dear friends from the Quilt Otaku blog, check out the podcast!!
