Fall down, go boom

I spent most of last week at SSK 2013 at Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville. The retreat is hosted by my friends, Laura Linneman and Leslie Thompson  aka The Knit Girllls. And I fell down literally and figuratively. My bed at home is a full bed. The beds at Scarritt Bennett were at a small twin (really closer to a cot) so Wednesday about 2 am I rolled of the bed and landed face first in the floor. Fortunately I wasn’t hurt (the floor may need repair). The figurative falling down was at the market on Saturday morning. I did some major and planned stash expansion so I’ll jump right into Just (k)nits to be.  The next post will be about the center and the classes. Most of the yarn I purchased was worsted, aran or DK weight for softies. From GnomeAcres I bought 6 skeins.

From Anorher Crafty Girl I bought  some worsted and a bestie set which is fingering weight and will be socks.She also dyed the yarn that was in my SSK goodie bag which was called Happy Tears and New Friends and will also be socks.

I also pre-ordered a shawl kit called Summers at Scarritt Bennett from Desert Vista Dyeworks.The colorway was inspired by the colors in the walla of the beautiful gothic buildings at the center.I also bought some self-striping sock yarn from Desert Vista Dyeworks at the  market.Three of these colorways were limited edition SSK colors. I also bought a couple of project bags, a sweater bag, some wheel bags, and a large tote. I was also gifted a bag.
