My daughter wanted to go to Stitches too, so the two of us went on Sunday afternoon (I figured that Saturday would be way too crazy!). She was actually more excited about the Japanese fabric booth I found on Friday. We spent a couple of hours (with only minimal whining, are you done yet?) going up and down the aisles. The highlight was learning to spin at the Serendipity Spinners booth. They rigged up a drop spindle using a CD and dowel. Here's R's first spool of spun fiber:
I so want a spinning wheel! I think I might just look for a nice drop spindle so I can spin small amounts of yarn to include in my projects. I don't really need yet another hobby!
I also bought a couple of shawl pins (one glass, one wood), a few patterns and a pair of sock blockers from Blue Moon. I really wanted to find a nice messenger bag for my knitting projects, but was disappointed to find very few bags being sold.
