Stitch-n'-Pitch, Part Deux

Stitch-n'-Pitch, as I said last night, was a blast. We came, we saw, we knitted (Okay, Tim didn't knit). But he did get a t-shirt, oh yes he did. He did not, however wear it. It will find a permanent home with my mother.

First, there was knitting:

There were also nice people, many of them knitting:

I'm classifying myself among the nice people, do with that what you will.

Then...there were prizes.

Between the two of us, we won
1. Size 9 Takumi bamboo needles
2. 2 skeins of Classic Elite Phoenix
3. 3 skeins of Bernat Envy
4. 4 knitting pattern books
5. A commuter mug for Tim that says "Don't Knit and Drive" from Knitters Anonymous

6. And, most spectacularly, a full set of Susan Bates needles, in leatherlike case, sizes 1 to 11. Admittedly, there are 3 size 10.5 needles, and only one size 10 needle, but I ain't complainin'. Unbelievable.

I have not, up to this point, been the kind of person who wins drawings. Maybe my luck has changed. Tulalip Casino, anyone?

And finally, Lily's share of the winnings, a needle gauge to chew on and a cellophane bag.
