Stitch & Pitch!

Want to see what the best thing about taking (dragging?) muggles with you to knitting events is: Stitch & Pitch Goodie bags!

You double your loot! You know theirs no way in hell that a knitter would part with her swag for you. The only down side to multiple loot bags would be this: Extras!!

I already had this issue of IK so now I have three. I also have a double of this Filatura Di Crosa mag. I did get different yarn, a Knit1 and two sets of needles though. I meet Lily Chin, she actually called after my husband to give him this bag after she told him they were gone. She made him promise to learn to knit. ;)

This week also marks the first time in a long time that my husband and I went out together, without children, three days in a row. Mark this down on your calendars as I am sure that this won’t happen again anytime soon. We went to the seminar at the library and it was very informative. Daniel Saynt from Fashion Indie led it and he was fantastic and really funny. Due to the storm we had a journey getting to Stitch and Pitch. Then today I met him at work for lunch before retrieving the oldest two who were with my mother-in-law since Sunday(!). I nearly died, but I think we all needed some space. They had someone to fawn over them without having to stop and grab a baby or two, and I got to leave my sewing crap all over and not worry about someone sewing up their fingers. I made this bag:

I also slept, and sat in the quiet for hours while the twins napped. They hung out with my mom while the hubby and I pretended to be dating again. They are so well behaved it’s almost like they aren’t there. Although they did coo and laugh more with their brother and sister gone. I think they knew they had me to themselves and could make all the noise they wanted and actually be heard :) But I think #1 daughter and #1 son are happy to be home.

  1. I was there also and I dragged the little one along. I wish I could’ve introduced myself. I love the bag, very cute.
