I arrived at Vogue Knitting Live on Friday afternoon just in time to have lunch with my friend, Cynthia of Knitting Central.
At 5:00 the marketplace opened for those attending classes. I stood in the queue and chatted with the women around me. One of the women said my name looked familiar. Would you believe that the woman I was talking to bought my Spiral Hat pattern from Cynthia at her booth at VKLive last year. We even corresponded via email when she had a question about the pattern. Unbelievable.
It was tough, let me tell you.
I ran into Jan who’s Sheer Beauty Swirl inspired one of the students in my Knit, Swirl class. I immediately recognized her from her Ravelry picture and from her swirl. What a small world! When I saw her I explained who I was and that we had corresponded on Ravelry about her swirl. This is definitely going to be the next swirl I make.
The Hari scarf was also knit with Neighborhood Fiber Co. Rustic Fingering. (I told you I was smitten with their yarns.)
This is the Merging Ripple Shawl pattern from Knitscene, Winter 2012, very cool looking.
Off in the corner is another pattern in my queue, Leftie. It’s a great way to incorporate leftover bits of fingering.
Alright, so it may be hard to see. There are three women on the right with the bulk of a majorly tangled skein of yarn. The yarn spans across to the left side of the picture. Not pictured is the woman holding the yarn on the left side. This was a four woman job!
