I'm way behind on my posts. I had a blast at the Knit-Out and spending time with family and friends. The Knit-Out itself was full of freebies from the yarn companies, Michael's and Clover. I ended up coming home with free yarn, patterns and needles. There were some demonstrations and beginners classes. I did manage to see the doggie fashion show, but by the time the other fashion show came I had enough of the crowds and it was on to the shops.
We ended up hitting 4 or 5 shops total. First stop was Zandy's in Burnsville where one of my best friends works. I ended up getting four skeins of some lovely Marble yarn for a hat, scarf and wrist warmers.
We next went to Three Kittens in Mendota where I bought a massive quantity of sock yarn as well as some Nuro Daria to make a purse. I bought lovely Tofutsie's yarn and Artyarns as well as Clown and my girlfriend gave me some Lorna's Laces Shephards Sock and some beautiful patterns as well. All in all it was a successful trip. I was able to see my niece who I haven't seen in three or four years. She just got out of the Nurse Corps a few months ago.
