Stitches West - Day 3
Ellen's Stripe HomeworkAnother busy class day for me. 8am, Sally Melville's "Stripes & Stripes that Aren't." Excellent class! We covered tech-y stuff like knitting vs. weaving in tails; we talked about viewing possibilities and color/texture combos; stripes and how they work in a garment and how to knit various types of stripes that are horizontal, but actually look vertical.
Sally, Modeling One of her CreationsSally is really a fabulous teacher. If she ever comes to your town to teach, register for the class....you'll learn a lot.

After class it was time for lunch. I checked the bar to see if I could find any of the other L.A. contingent. They were nowhere to be found...probably shopping in the Market Place. I was really tired of hotel food, so I jumped in my car and drove to the nearby In 'n Out Burger. It was delicious and about 20 bazillion dollars less than lunch at the Hyatt.
Debbie's Octagon Baby Sweater - Cellular CircleI met up with the group for drinks in the bar later and for the Student Fashion Show and dinner. There were door prizes, an OK dinner and excellent fashions. I'm exhausted and hope to have an uneventful drive home tomorrow before the Oscar pre-shows!
