This family is from NYC and were very nice. The mother made the beautiful pink beaded shawl which was showcased in the fashion show as the finale piece. They were selling the kits to make the scarf at Great Yarns. And the last picture is the yarn I wanted, but did not get... I forgot about it and didn't remember until I saw this picture in my camera.
Steve and Kathy Elkins from WEBS. They had some amazing sales and we spent a lot of time at their both.. And here is Jillsey showing off her new bag.
After hours and hours of shopping we really were ready to drop -- we decided it was time to wrap up day one and go for food. We went to Legal Seafood and Jillsey our shopping buddy for the day went with us.. Jillsey needed to avoid the traffic going back to VA so what better way to end the day than a relaxing dinner. Our waiter Brandon was great and he even tried his hand at knitting
Day Two -- We managed to get up pretty early and go out in time to see the Baltimore Marathon take off. The runners were many even though it was a bit chilly, there was a huge turnout. We were standing right by the Channel 11 news reporters. It was exciting! Laurindo's co-workers (Elizabeth) ran the 5K. We didn't get to see her actually start, but I hope next year that we can do this Marathon, if only to do the 5k would be great.
After watching the Marathoners take off we went back to the hotel for coffee and to get ready for our final hours at Stitches. We got over to the convention center around 12:30 pm. We had discussed where we wanted to go and we knew we still needed to complete rows 400/500. It was amazing that we didn't even touch that side on Friday. Well these rows happened to be where all the Cashmere was hiding... We managed to get through with adding a few more skeins to our stash.... We actually took no pictures on day 2 because we were completely focused on the task of getting the best yarns available.. Well we can say that our stash is very well stocked and I pray for SNOW soon -- so we can be snowed in and Knit and Knit and Knit.............
