A flashback

I grew up watching Jim Henson's television creations, including The Muppet Show, and Fraggle Rock. To this day, I still enjoy watching these classic shows. A couple of years ago, I downloaded Knit One, Purl Two, a song featured on Fraggle Rock. I stumbled upon the source video for this song yesterday, and I wanted to share it. Enjoy!

Stitches West

Today I went to Stitches West for the first time. It was very overwhelming, to say the least! There were tons of people, and just as many booths to take in. My favorite booths at these conferences are always those of the indie producers, and at this show I especially enjoyed the booths of Slipped Stitch Studios, Ranch of the Oaks, Never Not Knitting, and Miss Purl.

Cosette Wrap

I demonstrated amazing restraint, and only came home with the Cosette Wrap pattern by Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting. I can't wait to knit one out of leftover bits of handspun yarn.
