I went to Stitches Midwest in Schaumberg, IL with my mom last weekend and it was great fun! Here is my 'haul' from the show! I'll have plenty to keep me busy.... hmmm, what to start on first??? I think it might be the metallic ribbon- I am so curious to see how that will knit up. It's going to be a scarf with a wavey ripple pattern- stay tuned for photos! I got the new Sommerset mag today too, so I am not short of any inspiration in knitting or my altered arts world. I think this weekend will be filled with a little of both!
