Knitting on the Lake 2009 Part 3

Stash enhancement and door prizes. Oh my. In addition to seeing knitters new and from last year one of the fun things that Robin spends a lot of time on is getting door prizes donated and vendors to come on Saturday. So I am going to post a lot of pictures~

This is the Needle Holder I won that was donated from the Knitting Sisters. It is made with Kaffe Fassett fabric.
But I do not knit with straight needles so when I saw this circular needle holder by lexie barnes I could not to myself from buying it. It was only $35 so... it is the only that gets you. No shipping etc.
Mary Jane was the vendor from KOTL 08 has closed her business and on Sunday she brought in box after box of yarn and a few notions. I have no idea what the buttons are going to be used for but for $1.50 I could not pass them up.

The Lion Suede was on the table that people brought in for the For Sale table. I thought it would be good for another Dolores Park Cowl. Like the one I made here.

Left: Andes Color 08, 5 skeins, 825 yds. I plan on knitting the February Lady Sweater. Read a tip somewhere to alternate a skein every two or 4 rows to help (eliminate) pooling. When I get these on the needles I will actually make swatch. On the left is a pretty Cestari Lilac Heather 2 ply I have no idea what to do with yet but the price was right.

The pink/purple is Blue Heron Beaded Cotton/Rayon that was also on the For Sale table as well as this Cestari Tye Dye. Of course I'm still thing cowls but I will be going through some of the books I have.
Next is Diane's yarn from Creatively Dye Yarns I took a close up but if you go to her site you will see how she dyes her yarn.

9:07, 3/21/09: I started this post on 3/2/09. I signed up for a month of Anstry.c0m. I already has a program and had 4 generations. I have so much I want to share am will try to be a better bl00ger.

Rosanne fell in love with Lexi Barnes that weekend too. I just wish she'd release some new patterns. Maybe then I could swoon...

Catching up on blogs (behind on some!) You have some good finds there, I'm sure the projects will present themselves for the yarn. I love the "Creatively Dyed" hank!
