Stitches West 2016

This year in addition to working at our MKGSFBA (Machine Knitting Guild San Francisco Bay Area) booth I was at the Shalimar yarns booth Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.  The yarn colors are beautiful, have to design something using it.

I didn't see TKGA or Redheart there.  TKGA wasn't there last year either, I usually renew my  Cast On subscription during Stitches because they give you a free past issue and I try to get one with my design in it for my mother.  But they weren't there last year either.  And I usually stop by Redheart because they sometimes display my designs.

However, the number of vendors seem to be the same, the hall is full as usual.

Two Designs in Interweave Knits Spring 2016

Although both are pentagon designs, Phi Cowl(below) is knitted flat and each pentagon seamed.   You can buy it here.   Phi comes from the book I was reading at the time, The Golden Ratio, by Mario Livio about the golden ratio(phi) and it's geometric relationships to pentagons and other figures.  Photos by  Harper Point Photography, courtesy of Interweave Knits.  

The Deanery Street Centerpiece is knitted from the outside and ends as a single stitch at the center of each pentagon and you can buy it here.
