My First Stitch 'n Bitch

I never thought I'd say it, but... I can't knit or crochet any more today. My hands just don't want to do it. At Sunflowerfairy's urging, I went to the New Haven S'nB this afternoon and had a blast chatting with the ladies (and guy) there. There are a few more knitblogs on my daily reading list now, and a new love for Moka. I got one of the last cups of hot cider for the season, and next time I'm going to try the orange-and-spice hot chocolate.

My magenta Tunisian bag is coming along nicely. The front is finished, the back is about halfway there, and then it's just the sides, flap, and strap. I'll take pics when my sister lets me borrow her camera again. I'm thinking about doing some embroidery on the bag once it's assembled, since Tunisian crochet lends itself so well to such embellishment.

I think I'll spend the evening installing fonts (I forgot to do a backup before reformatting my hard drive a few months ago), playing with GIMP, and making a flash-redirecting thingumbob for my camera. (My camera takes film, so I can't use it for blogging.)

I missed you??? Crap. Sorry I wasn't there. :( Did you tell them that you designed the hat? I showed it off to them and everything. They would have known you.

I'll be there next week. I promise.

I didn't break out the hat (though I did have it with me). They loved my chainmaille and the Falling Leaves sock, though. :) See you next week!

Hi - I saw your name on Paul's Blithering Knitiot blog - and decided to check out your blog because I love the name Lilith LOL.

ANyway - I see you went to the New Haven S&B.

Are you in New Haven?? So, am I - Wooster Square.

Small world.

Hi, Tristan! Thanks for visiting. Your quilts look fantastic (as does your hair). I'm actually up near Hartford, but I'm happy to drive an hour to visit with the SnBers in New Haven on Sundays. :)

Is Tunisian crochet the same as afghan stitch? It looks very similar to my crocheted afghan panels. Here is a closer-up picture:

Yep, it's the same thing, Kim. :)
