Theresa at Stitches

Theresa has been working for over a year on a shawl of her own design. It is an homage to  those teachers who taught her in lace classes. I know that Orenburg and beading on lace are, at least, two of the classes represented.
The picture showing the entire shawl has two people holding it up; so you can see how large it is. It's not quite finished since it needs an edging pattern.
Theresa also knitted the dress and wore it at stitches. Theresa followed the basic design but as usual reinterpreted the neckline and sleeves. Several times! She's behind the dress.
At stitches she won the Designer's Choice Award and the CEO said that he would like to arrange an interview for Knitter's magazine.
So Theresa had a very eventful Stitches trip.
The hat worn by Chris was designed and knitted by Theresa, too. She knit it for Chris to wear at a Star Wars con. I believe the hat is about Boba Fett and there are two other graphed designs on the hat. Chris made a contribution to the VA here in Pittsburgh in payment for the hat.
