Hi, Mirjam--

I started a new project. Don't remember which came first--the thought that I
should knit my son a scarf for the New York winter, or the compulsion to get
some of that "recycled" Tibetan/Nepali silk (loose threads from weaving,
spun very tightly into a thick 1-ply yarn). So, he's getting a silk scarf,
which should be quite warm. Let me tell you, that stuff is a b***h to knit.
I have ended up using 15mm needles (US #19, wooden, thank goodness), and
knitting it with some left-over rust-color sport-weight silk yarn. Keeping
my fingers crossed it will be long enough, since no two hanks were the same
color mix.

Hallo All , we don`t have it here , but i remember that while we were
in Boston we went to a Haunted house , stood HOURS in line ,,,, brrrr
than were haunted brrrrr
mirjam
I tried to stay awake all night on Halloween this year to watch GHL

(GhostHunters Live), but could do it. But I had the show taped so I
could watch the parts that I miss. The show was real cool. Taps did a
investingation in a Haunted Hotel. Its was the same Hotel that Stephen
King did the movie Shining in. It was the one that gave him the idea
for the book & movie. The hotel is called the Stanley Hotel. They had
people text them if they saw a shadow or anything moving. They even had
a voice of a ghost child named Katie that said Hello two of the Taps
members. The hotel really a reinvestingation b/c a table moved on
Brian,(another member of Taps) and Jason (one of the lead
investingators of Taps) got footstep and his drinking glass broke and
he got on tape of his closet door closing there last time. It was real
neat.
Before that I watch the Engiburh, Scottland investingation haunting on
MHL, (Most Haunted Live) it was for two nights Halloween eve and then
another showing Halloween night. They got a good ones too. The MH team
got growls & then attacks on film. The ones that got attacked though
was John, and another name I just forgotten.And then Karl got attack by
the same ghost. That was very scary at the end of the first night show.
John, Karl and team all are ok. I had fun watching those two
ghosthunting series. Almost made me go get a camera and try it. Almost
that is.

Tell us about the Stitches East Tamar ?
What was the Main craft shown ???

Knitting! I spend my time in the merchant area, helping
my friend (and shopping) so I didn't take any classes.
Relatively few booths weren't entirely about knitting.
One booth offered massages (by appointment), and
another booth was selling massage equipment. One had
triangular weaving looms, there were two jewelers, some
had spinning materials (roving, batts), some sold
spinning wheels and spindles, EuroSteam irons, buttons,
pins to fasten shawls with - but mostly it was yarn,
books, and needles and crochet hooks of all kinds.
There was also a booth of knitting machines that people
could try out.

I over-spent as usual, but almost everything I bought was
on my wish list before I went. At Sandy Terp's booth I found
books on lace knitting, including Miller's _Heirloom Lace_ -
not cheap, but also not easy to find where you can leaf through
and really see what is inside. I decided I'm too rough with
my needles to get the beautiful cobalt blue glass circular
needles, but I found the 10-inch long birchwood Brittany dpns
I've been looking for. Newton's Yarn was there (all the
way from Anaheim, CA) with their usual amazing bargains on
overstock yarn, for example, cashmerino for $7.00 for hanks
of 3 or 4 ounces each (minimum purchase 5 skeins) in glorious
pure colors. Webs (from Massachusetts) had their usual very
large area. From other vendors I got local-area naturally-brown
wool (from Virginia, which is local compared to California),
Regia for $2.48/ball, and a bag of sock yarn for 75% off. And
a set of blocking wires, in case I ever finish any lace that
needs to be blocked. (The Orenburg lace booth was selling
completed shawls and stoles as well as cobweb yarn, but I still
have dreams of making my own.)

The merchant space was slightly cool, which made it comfortable
for people who were wearing their beautiful hand-crafted sweaters,
waistcoats, and shawls.

Thanks for the excellent report. Reading it was the next best thing to
having been there.
