Knit City was a blast - it was a well organized show with great vendors, teachers, and attendees! To all of you whom I was lucky enough to meet for the first time, or to reconnect with, thanks so so much for coming by the booth, saying "Hi," fondling yarn, and even taking some home with you! As much as I love my dyeing work, you guys are the reason I keep at it when things get stressful or monotonous. You rock. Knit night and yarn shows are pretty much the only times I willingly come out of my shell (extreme introvert + stupidly shy = hermit), and it's all because of the awesomeness of crafters.
Wanna see pictures? Warning, they aren't great - the lighting wasn't playing nicely with my camera.
|Pattern and yarn samples (missing: the new Angelus sample I finished at 1:30 Friday night) and fancy sock yarn!|
|Moments before the market opened...|
|5 minutes after this pic, this giant room was in happy shopping chaos!|
And, of course, my haul! I shopped more than I meant to, but all of it was from new-to-my-stash vendors which makes me happy. Clockwise, from top: Layered batts, from Caliope's Fibre, Bordeaux top from Muse Fibre Works, Superwash Sock Twist (Self Striping!!) in "Malevolent Mixture" from Doctor'd Yarn, Spark in "Siren Song" and Boneshaker in "Cthulhu" from Little Red Bicycle, and Jane Richmond's brand new book, Island.
Thanks, Knit City crew. I'll see you again next year!
