Unlike half the knitters on the East Coast, I didn't make it to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival but I still have loot.

Melanie brought me this 100% merino superwash lace yarn from Tess' Designer Yarns. Teri-Kay helped her pick the perfect green - not the green you see which is washed out by the flash, the actual green is deeper and richer.

Once I finish and recover from knitting Moonlight Sonata, I think I will use my loot to make Eunny Jang's Print o' the Wave stole.

I have some of that yarn from Stitches and it's so nice and soft!

PotW will be gorgeous in that green!

That green is fabulous! I was looking at mosses today and one was that color. Please, can you hurry and finish Moonlight Sonata so I can see that green knitted up??? ;-}

Hi Cate - I haven't run into you in cyberspace in eons, but now that you have a blog I can check in more frequently! Hopefully you remember me from wayyyy back when in Richmond - I'm a friend of Nancy H's from long ago at the Valentine.

Cate, the blue sweater looks smashing on you. You certainly have the knack for making sweaters that fit and look great. Hey, you've zipped ahead of me on that Moonlight Sonata, and it's looking good too. I feel such a sense of satisfaction when each row of little moons is done.

And the loot...sigh, it looks perfect on my monitor, so even richer, greenoholic here too.

I've got to come to your blog more often just to watch the little Bush counter count down and down and down, ROFL. Here in Canada, there was a run on t-shirts for a while. The acronym was ITMFA. Do you know what it stands for (sly grin)??

Hi Cate,
How can I find out more about Yarn Church? I live in the Northern Neck of Virginia and while Richmond is a bit of a drive (2 hours), it would be really nice to meet up with other knitters from time to time when I'm not working.

I didn't make it either but am holding out hope for next year. The yarn is gorgeous!
