Still not online unless I drag the laptop up to the business centre (= hassle, especially when it rains for five days in a row).
And alas the pics I was going to upload can't be uploaded cos we had a whoopsie with the domain name, which has expired (thoug if i had the IP address I could upload stuff to there). I have so manyt hings to show off - when we get decent access and I can upload pics, be warned!
Plus the pic I got at Stitches didn't come through to my email address so I can't put that up either even if we still did have a domain name....
So Stitches West 2008.
This was my first big knitty event outside of Oz, and really it was the very first BIG event I've been to. For Australians, imagine a stitches and craft size show (and for Melburnians imagine it in Jeff's Shed). Imagine that instead of about 5 places having yarn, only about 5 places don't have yarn. That is what Stitches West was like. LOTS of yarn! Lots of knitting stuff! Lots of pretties! I hit the Blue Moon shop first then hared off after Ravelry stuff. Despite entering heaps of contests I did not win a thing!
The timing for Stitches was great. It poured rain for most of the weekend - very unpleasant and a great time to be inside!
Did I buy yarn? Is the Pope a Catholic? Did I buy stuff to spin? Do fish swim?
Alas, no pics yet.
Hopefully we will soon be online properly. Nathan's work will pay for the internet connection but we have to organise it. I am feeling a bit isolated - just as well I am a natural hermit cos if I was an extravert I would've gone completely nuts rather than just a bit more crazy than normal.
