How much yarn will I buy?


Truckloads! 

Because...

I will be visiting 2 awesome southern California yarn shops this weekend!

On Friday (tomorrow) I will be at Unwind yarn shop in Burbank from 5:30-9:00 for a special "Mini Stitches Extravaganza". There will be refreshments and special sales and it sounds like a whole lot of fun. 
If you would like to attend, please click HERE to sign up!






On Saturday, I have the priviledge of doing a "designer meet and greet" at this amazing yarn shop, Wildfiber in Santa Monica! 

Look at the size of this store! 


I have a feeling that I am going to do some serious damage here! I will be at Wildfiber from 10am-2pm and will be there  incessantly shopping  knitting and meeting people. So come on by and say hello!

At both stores, I will have my all of my printed patterns available for purchase and a whole bunch of knitted samples on display. So please, if you are local to the southern California area, stop by either Unwind or Wildfiber and say hello. I LOVE to meet my blog readers and podcast listeners in person!

I hope to see you there!

Wish I still lived in CA so I could attend at least one of your sessions. Oh well. I saw your "Trunk Show" at "In the Making" today. It was so nice to see your creations in reality, rather than just pictures. Love 'em. Have fun buying yarn! :-)

You should come up to NorCal, although there's not an awesome yarn shop like that around here (that I've found at least). :) Have fun!

Wildfiber is AMAZING! I used to make special trips with my ladies from Ventura to Santa Monica. Make sure you have lunch at Fathers Office. Seriously, To DIE FOR.

bring your wallets folks! because when you see the items from the trunk show and the beautiful pattern lay outs, you will have. to. buy. them. now.

Or that was my experience at Stitches West! Once all these babies in my life get fitted out in knit wear, I'm casting on for my spring tee.... knowing me, it'll be ready just in time for fall. :~P
