Since I don't have a knitting BFF, I tend to drift amongst the crowd. I met Esther from Jazz Turtle Creations, mostly because she was spinning during the Pajama Party. Jazz Turtle's contribution to the Fashion Show -- the Au Natural Circle Shrug made from handspun art yarns -- caused an audible gasp in the crowd when the model stepped onto the stage. She truly looked as if she had emerged from the pages of the latest top fashion magazine. I am finding more and more than I really love my wheel. Both spinning and knitting are relaxing, but in different ways. Esther was making a core-spun yarn and it was a delight to watch her fingers making fiber magic.
During the Pajama Party mingling I also met Tracey and Kim from new STITCHES South sponsor Interlacements Yarns. Did you see their gorgeous contributions to the Extreme Stash wall?

As current president, I must say I'm very proud of North Georgia Knitting Guild. All the volunteers have been incredibly helpful and responsible. Everyone pitches in! Our booth had lots and lots of beautiful knitwear of all types. Barbara helped show off the afghan on Saturday night at the Student Banquet. Betsy Hershberg kindly drew the winning name in our afghan raffle on Sunday. And during the show, many people admired the lovely group handiwork.

STITCHES South is always a great weekend and a wonderful time with knitter friends new, old, and yet to be discovered!
