it's the only way i can describe it right now (in so many words) but really... knit city was so.much.fun. !!!!
i was able to meet so many amazing vendors, and fellow bloggers whom i can finally say i know them more than just through the interweb ;) and honestly, my face hurt from smiling so much.
can you say yarn high? hahaha. honestly, the weekend went by in a blur though. it was fantastic! amanda and fiona did a spectacular job, and the vibe was amazing.
there was a fair bit of us ladies from across the pond, so it felt like a mini victoria gathering in a way. ha. it was nice to see everyone though. and thanks to my long time friend carla, because of her help with the booth, i was able to do so much mingling! i loved chatting with caitlin ffrench, pip & pin, gourmet crafter (and a snagged a copy of her book "pacific knits" that she and the very talented emily wessel created together....., em of everything old,... i definitely tried to swing by jane richmond's booth many a time to visit with her and shannon, and i popped into the sweet georgia booth more than once or twice, but felicia was always so so busy!! :) i even got to see gourmet faerie and her lovely wife, as well as andrea rangel! i have not stopped fantasizing about these knitted pants now. and i got to see many other bloggers and ravelers. seriously people. i did my rounds. and i think it totally counts as exercise ;)
also i wanted to give a big congrats to rachael miller (ticket 0152533) who won my door prize contribution of a hand knit cowl! congrats girl!
i wouldn't have been able to do this weekend though without the support of my family and friends... my hubby and kiddo are such troopers and very helpful with the set up and take down... and it was so nice to see you again carla! xo
all in all i was super excited to make many new connections, and now i'm crazy giddy about what winter will bring. i have a feeling my winter booths will keep me up to my eyeballs in yarn. haha. which is awesome, because if i sell lots, it means i can buy more yarn. yessssssssssssss.....
i do wish i had remembered to take the camera out more... and take pics of the amazing and beautiful people that i met... i seem to be forgetful with the camera ;) i did come home with a few yarny treats, but alas, my hubby has already left for sea, and he has the camera this time ;) so i'll have to share it with you later xoxo
it's windy and rainy and cold out. what are you knitting?? xo
