Knitting Group was last night and the ladies were in full froth. The Sleepover is tonight and tomorrow at 8:00 AM six caffeinated women shall be headed to the Santa Clara Convention Center with their Yarn Geek Flags flying.
What did we learn last night?: Don't knit from the fucking skein. Therein lies disaster, madness and frustration Wind it into a ball first. No. Stop. Gimme. GIVE it to me! Now! GIVE!!
I kind of blew my fiscal Stitches load prior to the whole event. A favorite dyer just got back to me about the 38 ounces of merino/silk roving in my requested colors she's collected for a request I put in two months ago, so I'll be set for the next little bit.
After Group I could not sleep and polished off the merino/bamboo lot into a DK singles. It's exceptionally shiny and looks like sterling silver. I think it wants to be something outrageous.
