The event was exceedingly well attended, and I got to spot some of the "knitterati" including nearly mowing down Debbie Bliss near an escalator. I also saw Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (YarnHarlot) in her amazing Bohus sweater. It was really really lovely. I actually recognized the sweater before I saw her face. Unfortunately, didn't have a chance to talk to her as I was working with customers.
I also saw Ysolda, Melissa Wherle, and Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land. Anna and I got to have a lovely conversation, as the booth she was in was right next to the one I was in, and I got some pictures of her stuff:
There were some other really cool things at her booth, by other fiber artists (whose names I didn't catch), like these knitted animal skins:
And this lady who knitted a huge Beluga whale and other, smaller animals:
Anyway, I'm still a little delirious from exhaustion and stuff. I'll write some more tomorrow about the event, and show off the stash enhancement that occurred (yummy noro), the finished object (Meredith's hat) and yeah. Stuff.
Just gotta say though, it was REALLY amazing to be around so many knitters. I loved talking about knitting and yarn and fiber arts and everything else. I just had the best time!
