Today was Roanoke’s 10th Annual NoSo Knit. I heard about it too late last year (or way early this year?) and didn’t go but this year I was going. I even talked Mom into going. I have very few pictures because my camera battery was on the verge of death. I however did get a picture of our table.
Oh, and me and my Mom:
Mom won some lovely blue yarn who’s brand I’ve promptly forgotten:
I won some Berroco Tutu which must be hiding in Mom’s car because I don’t have it with me now and I know it made it TO the car so click the link to what it looks like. It’s the black one.
Other prizes at our table included 2 pattern books, a handmade cosmetic case, a legwarmer kit and some other wool. Yes, I did pay attention but that was a long time ago. We did a lot of talking and laughing and window shopping and some not window shopping and I just don’t remember who all got exactly what, ok?
Speaking of shopping, I did very well. I only bought 3 things:
Orchid lace weight Malabrigo:
This WILL be knit into a scarf or some such for me but oh, my. It’s so lovely I could just pet it all day long. (BTW, this purchase is all Christy’s fault. She was looking at the Malabrigo and said that I should definitely knit some lace…)
A green skein of Cotton Classic for a baby bib (for my nephew who will be born ANY day now!):
and a Fiber Trends Raindrop Lace sock pattern.
That’s it. Mom got some sock yarn of unknown origin. Well, SHE knows what brands they are but as I said before, we did a lot and all I know is one was a blue tweedy color and the other what looks like will be a nice blend of browns/grays.
Oh and I almost forgot, amongst our goodie bags (needles, patterns, coupons, various knitterly goodies) was this:
Sportweight Claudia Handpaint… mmmm…
All in all, we had a really good day.
