On Saturday, I ate a hurried lunch in the registration area with two charming young women, LaraBoBara and SarahBess. Lara blogs at http://www.redredwhine.com/ and Sarah at http://www.knitting12steps.blogspot.com/. Haha, you two. Now you have to update. I’d have liked to spend more time with them, I really enjoy their company and conversation. So I was feeling energetic and positive (thank you, ladies) when I got to my class with Chris Bylsma titled “Beyond Basic Buttons“. Our first instruction: “You are all 8 years old. You are at camp, and you are in the arts and crafts cabin.” I thought, I’m going to enjoy this. And I did. I love playing with yarn, glue, scissors and odd bits. Here’s a picture of some class projects:
and me with Chris:
and most of the class. a lucky and clever few escaped before my camera was ready.
That evening I arrived at Scalini’s along with some other Stitches attendees and vendors for a banquet dinner which I think every last one of us enjoyed very much. These are our renegade leaders. theknitwitch is holding the yarn.

I would love to link the face above to a website, sombody please point me the right way?
And one more photo in closing, a thing of beauty, as promised in my last post.
That’s the right way to begin check-out day. I can’t wait to go to Stitches South in ’10!
