Now that we have all the neuroses out on the table, let's remind you that if you're going to be at Stitches on Friday, the silver-maned fox Kaffe Fassett will be signing HIS new book, Kaffe Knits Again: 24 Original Designs Updated for Today's Knitters at Rosie's booth at 10:30 on Friday, and rumor has it that the devilishly handsome Brandon Mably will also be floating around somewhere some time.
Stop, you say, that's too much excitement for Baltimore to handle! No, wait, there's even more: I'm bringing with me a fresh batch of Black Bunny yarn and roving: superwash sock, laceweight merino and assorted rovings. Maybe some wool/nylon, too. It'll be on sale at the Rosie's booth.
Of course, Rosie's will uphold the fine tradition of bringing a boatload of Koigu -- and this year, the new Schaefer sock yarn called "Heather," Reynolds Soft Sea Wool and Whiskey, and Shetland kits that go with some cool stranded thing that Eunny is making. (But then again, isn't Eunny always making some cool stranded thing?!)
Are the X-Men ready for the Quebecois-American invasion that will be arriving in a green Ford tomorrow morning?
I think not.
Polish yer pointy-toed cowboy boots, Rick, and we'll see you in Baltymore.
