The new stash.

So... I went to Stitches South 2011 in Atlanta. My first roadtrip and fiber festival in one. Great fun!!! I didn't really control myself with the budget, becoming overwhelmed by all the pretties and ending up with a lot of wonderful yarn... ;) I've got some pics my proud purchases are: Glass needles (couldn't resist), Madelinetosh Vintage/Lace in Robin's Egg and a bright teal, and I won: a sk of Malabrigo sock (bright pink), a 20 patterns with Cascade 220 yarn book, 2 sk of 220 Heather Green, a Knitter's shirt and 5$ off a purchase. I got first runner up in the PJ contest which was cool. My pj's weren't that impressive but.... we had to "strut" to win a prize so I did a made up dance. haha. Comes in handy sometimes.

Still need to make some more eggs, and hearts. Somebody's birthday is coming... :D And I've got the sekrit project on the needles. Hint: it's green. <3 I also went to the Aquarium in Atlanta. It's the largest one in the world despite the massive amount of prepubescent teens and small children it was fun to look around. I'd love to visit during the day on a weekday where it's "dead." That would truly be amazing. I hit the Gaffney outlets on the way back as well. It made me poor but I got a new purse, dress, something from Juicy and a gift for my lil sis. PICS:
