Question: Why go to a Stitches West/Midwest/East?
3) To take classes taught by famous knitters and teachers
2) To meet other knitters
...and the primary reason
1) to enhance the stash!
As my sister e-mailed me about Stitches West, "there are a lot of vendors you can't find on-line - small farms,etc. - with incredibly beautiful yarn. It is yarn Disneyland."
Since the yarn Disneyland at Stitches Midwest, held near Chicago in August, is months and months away, how about I show you what the mail brought me yesterday? If you click on the photos, they'll be full-screen.
