Last weekend I attended a knitting event at the Surrey Museum called Pic-Knit. What a great event! It was their first year hosting this knitting get together and I would say it was a success. There were many vendors including yours truly. They also had knitting demonstrations and a short film on Cowichan knitting in their theatre. Linda, the organizer asked me if I would be interested in perhaps teaching a workshop at next year’s event. Yes!
I had such fun meeting many new knitters and putting faces to names I’ve only known on the internet. Audrey, it was great to finally meet you! Your name has been on my email list for so long and you were the first to sign up for the new email list on my new website. You’ve been more than kind in your emails to me in the past and I think you’ll probably recognize your words in a couple of the quotes that appear on my website.
Carol, I just had to snoop in your knitting bag when you said that you have a Ruby on the needles. Thank you for sharing! What a great colourway.
Karen, what a thrill it was to hear someone say, “Oh! I saw this in Vogue Knitting!” Yes, indeed the fall Vogue Knitting has hit the newsstands and I have proof. My Mum went all over Edmonton looking for the issue on August 5th, the day it was supposed to be available. Her LYS, River City Yarns had already sold out, but the local magazine store and Chapters didn’t have it out yet. I found it at my local London Drugs in Vancouver and we’ve since seen it at Chapters in Edmonton. It’s out there now! Of course, I have yet to receive my subscription issue. That will take some time yet based on past experience.
