Bronna turned me on to The Knitters Guild Show that was held just down the road. It was a three day knitter's and crocheter's cup of tea filled with classes, fashion shows, a silent auction, dinners and of course socializing and shopping.
Laurie and I could only attend one day, but worked a lot of mingling and shopping into those few hours. Here is a look at some of my goodies!
Laurie and I met many Triad Knitting friends. The day was exciting and surreal all rolled into one. In all my excitement I didn't get one pic, nope....didn't even think about it!
So many years I have admired and wanted to meet up with Champagne Maker! Finally it happened! I have knit several of her unique and lovely knits, The Wrapigan, and Under Tow for starters. She is a talented and out of the box kind of designer that is filled with a real love for life. CM was excited to tell Lauie and I about the publication of a new book in the works! Included in the book will be her adult "Sock Monkey" sweater...it simply is the cutest EVER sweater and I have wanted to pattern since the first time I laid eyes oh it! If there is a pre-order period for this book, I will be one of the first on the list.
Knitting on the Earth and Sky wrap is coming right along. This has been an enjoyable piece that I think will be just as enjoyable to wear.
Hugs and Purls!
