Loot!

Alas, poorly photographed loot, but loot none the less.

So yesterday I hauled my somnolent form out of bed at 4 in the morning and somehow managed to make my way to Columbus for Knitter’s Connection.  I took a class on reading Japanese patterns.  The class was well done and has cemented my determination to hunt down some Japanese stitch dictionaries (any recommendations?).

Till then, remember that today is the last day of the buy one get one free sale.  You’ve got till midnight to order, details are in the post below.
