That’s right, people. We will be attending Stitches West again this year. And since I’m getting married exactly one month from today, we’re making this a pseudo bachelorette party too! And by pseudo we mean just and by bachelorette we mean knitting. We actually thought of getting some hot strippers to hold our yarn while we hand wind, but then realized that would be an expensive swift! Even if it’d be droolworthy. Maybe we can meet up Saturday night somewhere?!
Woohoo! I am so excited to stitchelorette it up with my knittaz! And to have more than three hours to explore everything that Stitches has to offer, unlike last year!
Ha!!! Stitchelorette…so funny, wish I would’ve thought of it! But that’s why we blog together, right?! My current purchase plan is: 1 skein of yarn (haha, right…I know, I know), LoLo Bars, a cute tote, and a set of blocking wires. I know this probably is WAY under what I’ll actually purchase, but I’m more looking for a good time with friends then a good time spending money this year. WAIT…I forgot, Frosted Pumpkin will be there. I’m also getting some xstitch stuff too! And the list keeps growing…
Hahaha well you are (err well actually GRANT is) lucky that Jill Draper probably won’t have any Empires available because technically that’s “one skein”. Anyway… my list is pretty similar, I just want some LoLo Bars, one skein of yarn and possibly some xstitch stuff. I purchased the Thurlow hat pattern from Sweet Fiber last year and still haven’t knit it so I’ll be buying a semi-solid for that. Oh and Jennie the Potter will be there too so buttons and/or an adorable mug may or may not find it’s way into my luggage. Just sayin’.
Well shit. I forgot about Jennie the Potter. And I may or may not be going for a giant skein. I know that FishKnits will be there, so if the Canadiana is in stock, I know I’ll definitely be picking up on of those!
YES! I am so flippin’ excited to meet Emily for the first time, and of course to see everyone else that I’ve met before and love dearly. My good friend Kirsten @kirstenjane7 just started knitting recently so she will be joining us as well. And we also can’t forget Charlotte (@darjeelingtea)! I haven’t met her in person yet but we have a mutual love of poop and fart jokes so I know we will get along amazingly.
I don’t even know how I could have forgotten Charlotte! I talk to her like every day. Literally, ever day! I’m gonna ask her to scratch my back with her amazing nails! I know, it’s weird, but once you see her and those nails you’re going to be asking too. I’ve been counting down the days to stitches like I’ve been counting down the days to my wedding!
LOL Rijel, you’re such a creep. You know you can get some crazy fake nails too, right? Then you could scratch MY back. I am liking this idea already!
So yeah anyway, if you’re planning on being there too give us a holler. We’d love to meet you and say hello. If you like poop and fart jokes EVEN BETTER!
Hopefully we can nail down a time and announce it on IG so you can come hang too! Unless you want to be a super creep like I usually am and just figure out where we are or DM us on IG and tell us where to be!
