Last year, my trip to Stitches was overwhelming. I was unprepared for the sheer number of people and booths. But this year, I was ready. I had my handy list. I had a list of projects and yarn suggestions, as well as reminders to visit certain booths. Here is what I came away with.

primero-sea-greenBrooks Farm Primero. This was in the rejected skein section and I fell in love with it. The color is great and it’s so soft. This should be enough for a shawl.

mas-acero-blue-blackBrooks Farm Mas Acero. I mainly fell in love with the colors on the skein. It’s mostly a heathery black with some heathery blue. I’m not exactly sure what this will become yet.

black-paradeDream in Color Classy Black Parade! Yay! The first place I checked for Classy was at the WEBS booth, but they didn’t have any of the colorways I liked. Then I walked by Purlescence’s booth and gasped. A whole wall of Classy. Victory! Now I have enough for a sweater. Which one? I’m not sure yet.

thai-iced-tea-bflA Verb for Keeping Warm Bluefaced Leicester Aran. When I saw this yarn, I knew I wanted to make some sort of accessory out of it. Probably a hat. The color is really beautiful and it has a really cool name: Thai Iced Tea. What could be better than that?

ms-babs-grayms-babs-tealMiss Babs Sport Weight Sock Yarn. These two will become berets. I’ve decided. I should check what the names of the colorways are but I’m too lazy.

That’s about it. I was keeping an eye out for Norah Gaughan vol. 3 and 4 but I didn’t come across any copies. Other than that, I was completely satisfied with what I got. In addition, I must say that without Michael, many of these purchases would not have been possible. Needless to say, I left Stitches West absolutely giddy.
