Stitches 2009

Took the train to Stitches West this year and picked up some goodness.
Yarn from Miss Babs & Creatively Dyed, a portable Knitter's Block from Cocoknits, and some vintage buttons from The Button Lady.
The train ride was fun as always and although Stitches seemed smaller this year, there were plenty of things to fondle and drool over.
My first project will be a beret from the multicolored yarn
Color: Cleopatra
Yarn: Miss Babs Yowza-Whatta Skein! Superwash
Pattern: Twirli-gig Beret

Movie Knits

Last sunday my BFF and I took her daughter to see Twilight. I liked the movie although not as much as the book, and of course fell in love with most of the boy characters on screen. There were many knitted items throughout the film and my first project from this movie will be these
Bella Mittens by Subliminal Rabbit.

The next movie inspired knit will be the Coraline Sweater from the movie Coraline. The website has the pattern hidden in Coraline's bedroom drawer and my daughter wants it finished to wear to the movie, which isn't even a possibility unless I finish this sweater first.
It's Katje by Cocoknits and I want to finish it by the end of February so I can wear it to Stitches.
I'd better get knittin'...
