Thank You Alice

Well, the costume designer that dressed you, anyway..... Not only are they keeping us knitters busy with cool knits from the first movie Bella's Mittens,Baseball scarf La Push Hat, and Carlisie's awesome zipper sweater and baseball scarf; In the new movie due out 11/20/09 Alice is sporting some AWESOME fingerless Mitts that are sure to capture everyone's eyes!

The thing that pleased me most is that it is extremely similar to the Bom Dia colorway! Woo Hoo!

Next post will definitely have a picture of a pair of these in it, with a matching slouch hat too boot. I'll write down my patterns and post them for free.....
Hmmmmm.... maybe put a few kits together? Probably jumping the gun on that one.

I survived Sock Summit '09

Portland, OR
WOW! What an amazing experience! I had the chance to meet so many wonderful people, I have to say that was my favorite part. Our booth neighbors were amazing people and they helped us until the very end. Ever morning I would wake before the alarm excited to see what each day would bring...... I never tired of smiling :)
That being said; Saturday sure through me for a loop! Thursday night and Friday went so well that Saturday seemed very slow, it kind of disappointed me. Wasn't Saturday suppose to the big day? Sunday made up for it big time! I don't think the booth was ever empty, always teaming with people coming to talk and feeling the yarn and stitch markers.
Of course if you know me I always seem to leave my camera at home....This time I brought it with!!!! But I forgot my memory card at home..... I know, I know!!!! Jenn (AKA KnitWit Momma was helping with my booth and she had the foresight to remember just about everything I forgot. Next post there will be pictures, PROMISE ;)
