Yesterday I spent the afternoon at Stitches with Style in Newark, DE. This was a nice big store full of wonderfully welcoming knitters and lots of my knits.

Sara, the daughter’s owner picked me up from the train station and I quickly roped her into modelling my sample Matilda Jane – which fit her perfectly. She’s already bought the pattern to make her own. This one’s in New Lanark’s silk tweed double knitting weight and my friend Mel knit it before I left.

Another, rather glam, Matilda Jane showed up.

Isn’t it pretty?

They had a potluck dinner, with lots of tasty dishes – I left very full, but couldn’t get into this Delaware specialty. ‘Pretzel salad’ – pretzels, cream, jelly with strawberries. Hmm…

I considered feeding mine to this guy.

There was a brilliantly colourful Ishbel, who’s knitter wasn’t sure about wearing it – tell her she should!

I helped this knitter pick out yarn for her Liesl

Later I met this gorgeous vintagey adaptation of Little Birds.

Thank you to everyone at Stitches with Style for having me and to Liz and Jen for hosting me and ferrying me around so graciously.
