Stitches Midwest, you are so ON!

I am so incredibly excited and pleased that I decided to do Stitches. It has been endless days of preparation and the little ankle biters are being very much left to their own devices...(they aren't such ankle biters being that they are 6, 11,13,15,17,19, and 22...they can do much for themselves, I just have mothers guilt)however I feel very much like I am as prepared as I can be and at set-up today I think my booth will look good and i can't wait to start tomorrow night! I am going to have a Make your own Dumpling station...and we are not talking the edible kind!!!!

Speaking of Dumplings my local bead shop dug around and found a bunch more rings and I bought them all (feels like) I will post pictures after Stitches of the new varieties. Here are some Dumplings I found in the projects on Raverly. Last week their were 13...this week their are 40! Prolific little buggers

Its the best feeling to know people are having fun with their knitting and loving the end result and I am in part the reason why!

I can't wait to feel the energy of the people, I am so incredibly excited to actually meet some of my cyber knitting is surreal!

Note to self (et al.) when you decide last minute to get the streaks in your hair freshened up, and the colorist you have used and trust for a while is out of town, don't use just any other colorist at the hair salon. I haven't been this light blonde streaked in ...well....ever. Its weird. Oh well, this should be my worst problem.

Pictures to come!
