More of Stitches West! It’s nearing 11 a.m. ….Karen and I have managed to leave Ellen 1/2 Pint booth and cross the aisle to the Great Yarns! booth. This vendor travels from Everett, WA each year to show their wares at Stitches West….they do an incredibly good job….great designs and models. We were captivated with several designs but in particular with a garment that another customer/friend of Great Yarns! encouraged us to try on! Now neither of us would have thought that we would fall in love with Flowers and Ruffles that is featured in the April 2012 issue of Knit N Style. This garment was seen the night before on the runway of the Stitches Fashion Show.
We each tried it on….and OMG I want to knit this…so does Karen. We were prudent…wrote the information down…and I know I will be ordering the yarn soon. …just need to finish a couple more UFO’s in queue. The details of this garment as published online for Knit N Style are: “Sandi Prosser designed a knee-length vest featuring three fibers from Trendsetter Yarns. The body of the vest is knit in Garter stitch using Merino 8 Shadow. Cha Cha is worked together with Merino 8 Shadow to create a ruffle effect on the turn-back collar, which is then adorned with Bodega flowers.”
It’s now nearing noon and we must move on….we had only “surfed” two aisles…and there was so much yarn and so many friends to see!
