Knit City Haul

Frog Peak Creations I got to meet Monique, she noticed me as I was wandering the arena. She gave me a bag for a giveaway and I had to chose the one I did because I laughed so hard when I saw it.

Nekozuki Knits, was able to chat with Katie a bit, her booth was beyond beautiful, she gave me 2 notions pouches to giveaway.

Gingersnapthat put a side a sweater quantity of her Lux DK base for me to make A faded Cardi and I absolutely am in love and cannot wait to knit this.

Aspen, grey 3 skeins, Sage, green 2 skeins
Woodland darker green 2 skeins, Stardust, lighter green 2 skeins

I had also place an order prior to Knit City of 2 half skeins of yarn and progress keepers. Sly Fox and Suit and Tie will both be either shortie socks or added as accents to other project.s

West Coast Colour, got the yarn for the Zig Zag Shawl in DK base Fits of Giggles Too and the colourway Rainforest, 6 for the shawl and an extra two for matching hat and fingerless gloves.
