CityGal wishes….

….that she was at Stitches.

Yeah, Stitches South is this weekend. Despite the fact that I will likely be going to Stitches Midwest in August, I had made an unofficial plan to maybe, just maybe, sneak down to Atlanta for a day to visit Stitches South. But no. Work has made that IMPOSSIBLE! When I finally got my schedule for this week it was bad – no chance in hell of going to Stitches. At all. Not even if I were to fly! I work the ENTIRE weekend!! My only day off is Friday, and I spend most of today moping about the house. I am still coming off of the high of visiting California (update still to come!), and am sort of going through a green-with-envy thing with all of these knitting events. As I listen to various podcasts and read blogs I just get more and more jealous of all these events that people go to! I shouldn’t be, partially because I’ve only been knitting for 9 months (so how can I possibly even begin to have planned for these things), and also because knitting is my hobby, not my profession (yet, anyway!) ;-P But I can’t help it! I want to go! I am a little obsessed with the craft now, so I just feel like I’m being left out! Here’s my wishlist for events, past and present, that I’d like to go to:

Camp Kip, Stitches South and Midwest, Rhinebeck, Sock Summit, DFW Fiber Fest, Oregan Flock and Fiber, Loopy Ewe Spring Fling, YarnCon, and the list goes on.

I know I can’t possibly afford to go to all of these, but it doesn’t stop the want! I will have to do my research this summer and decide what I might really want to go to next year. Once I decide it’s ON!

What festivals have you been to that you have enjoyed? Not enjoyed? That are still on your wish list?
