Shipwreck(ed) and Yarn fume overload

Today I went to Stitches South.  I could hardly contain myself.  With project spreadsheet in hand, I felt I wouldn't be AS distracted by the yarn overload.  I was wrong.  I felt out of control the minute I walked into the center.  Glorious yarns... everywhere you looked...  I kept telling myself to walk through first - don't buy anything the first go 'round. 

 Bugga yarn in Chocolate Rhino.  (earmarked for Summerflies)
Miss Babs in Sock Weight Ansel  (earmarked for Jeanie)
Miss Babs in YOWZA - Luna Granite
Madelintosh Light in Vanilla Bean (2)
Malabrigo Sock in Terracotta (which is more like an orange and makes me happy)
Madelintosh Pashmina in Logwood (gorgeous)
Gwen Bortner book of Entree to Entrelac (I have been wanting this book and she was there so I met her and she signed it)
Highlighter Tape in Green (I already have orange and use it all the time)
Kauni yarn in 2 different colorways (can't wait to start this project)
One skein of Socks that Rock in a gorgeous colorway. 

I had so much fun - especially seeing a lot of my knittin' friends and some vendors that I have known over the years!

I ended up wearing Shipwreck Shawl today and had many many compliments.  Most wanted to know what yarn it was - Again Bugga in Sooty Dancer - and why I didn't put beads on it - to which I answered, "I am really not a bead person"...  I will most certainly knit this again. Not the best photo in the world but you can see most of the detail against my white shirt.

Night night.
