What the @%*?

I went on the Stitch 'n Ride train again to Stitches West. This year we had the longest train they've ever put together for the route we were on--ten cars for almost 600 knitters! Can you imagine that many knitters on one train? It was some serious knitting energy on that train. There were eight in our group and we had a blast!




I didn't buy very much since Sock Camp is only a couple of weeks away. I promised myself I wouldn't buy any green yarn (my stash is overflowing with green). I'm not sure what happened, but when I opened up my loot bag for show and tell on the way home everyone was laughing at me...

I didn't realize I almost exclusively bought everything salmony-pink!!

Thanks to Leslie, I was able to score this awesome mill end at the Blue Moon booth (note: it also contains salmony-pink).

I snuck in one teeny bit of green and a cute baby sweater book.

Not bad on the spending--I'm not so sure about branching out on my color selection...

That would be fun to be around so many knitters on the train!

Sounds like an amazing time! Beauitful yarn - isn't it funny when you unconsciously buy the same color over and over again?

There you are!
I was with you at Stitches and I didn't even realize you were so entranced with the salmon/melon color. I love that color too.

Love your selections. I wasn't as controlled this time as I won't make it to Sock Camp this year. However Sock Summit is calling!

Check out my purchases on my blog.
