Went to Stitches Midwest with my sweet friend, Becky. Talked nonstop for hours and caught up on long awaited conversations. Golly, how I'd missed her! So I did succumb to a few purchases…green for a sweater, black-brown,cream for a shawl, and an amazing deep purple-brown-cream-pink-yellow for a dressy cowl. The pink will also be a sweater. I got a cowl pattern and a sweater pattern that I am standing by the mailbox to get because they had sold out at the show. The sweater is so adorable with a handkerchief hem - so different from the average sweater. I also got click row counter. No more lost rows because the dial got bumped and changed. Oh, how I am loving knitting!
