Thank GOD! I got everything packed for Stitches Midwest. My booth is 831 & 829.

I brought A LOT OF BLANKS. I have everything from wool to silk to alpaca to possum. I also have the last 30 hanks of Supersock Select. It is a low micron count Supersock. I will have 20 blanks and at least 10 dyed. I have some beautiful mohair and silk boucle, and silk and mohair stranded as well. I will be bringing all my dyes, and Synthrapol, and some Citric Acid.

Also I am bringing several different types of 4 ounce blanks all suitable for sock/ hats, etc: Superwash DK, Fingering weight wool, Worsted worsted and bulky wool. Some of these yarns I have some free patterns for.

What I am most happy about is the other indie dyed yarns! I am bringing three different indie dyed yarns.

Unwind Yarns by Khetala (Rav) Shannon sent her yarn from British Columbia. She sent me a cute little Shrug pattern that her daughter looks adorable in to go with her worsted yarn.

Fire Lizard Yarn's Cara sent a great batch of sock yarn. She is from Huntsville, AL and does a variety of things, NOT JUST YARN! :) Her blog is here.

Last, but certainly not least is Ancient Thread's Lynda(blog) from Syracuse, NY has brought her unique touch to the party. Lynda only uses plant dyes for her yarn.

Finally, I am bringing 200 Superwash Manifesto DVDs, I have little guide booklets to go with them and I will be signing them at the show. I have a bunch of low cost getting started projects that are fun and easy and COST EFFECTIVE.

At least come by and say Hi I would love to meet you.
