What a great final day of Vogue Knitting Live! I started off my day with a class taught by Debbie Stoller and the class was clalled Knitting on the Double. She started off by having us do a swatch in double knitting and then we moved in to make her Uncle Argyle Scarf pattern. The class was very helpful and I enjoyed the Knitting on the Double class very much. I will show my progress on that scarf soon.
After I finished my class, I rushed over to the market place to go and see the Design is a Process panel with Josh Bennett, Susan B Anderson, Amy Herzog, Steven West, and one other (I can't remember her name. Sorry!). They talked about their design process and how they got into knitting. It was very interesting, but I had to leave 15 minutes in because my wonderful step-father got me lunch from Shake Shack.
After eating lunch, I had to rush around to pick up some things before my next class at the marketplace. I got a sweater quantity of yarn and some other things (A stash enhancement post to come this week!). I also got my measurements taken so that I know that my measurements are correct when I knit my next sweater. It was really useful to to have that booth so that I could get some good measurements. I then headed off to my final class of the weekend which was called IrRESITable Dyeing: Exploring Shibori for the Fiber Artist. It was taught by Rhonda Farngoli who is a great teacher who teaches knitting and color at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) and has her own yarn line. We did shibori dyeing in the class which is very similar to tie-dye except you use indigo to get a nice blue fabric. Below are pictures of how the process works. First we used rubber bands to tie up the muslin that we used. Then, we dipped the muslin in water and then indigo and then back to water. Once that was done we go the beautiful fabrics that you can see below.
All in all, it was a great weekend at Vogue Knitting Live, but we are all very tired (in fact as I am writing this my mom is asleep on the couch next to me :) ). Thanks again for reading and check back in a couple days for a stash enhancement from VKL! post and more. Drop me a line and let me know how you like the blog! I can be found on Ravelry as KnicksKnits and I have a contact form on my contact page on this website. I hope you have a knit-tastic day and thank you so much for reading!
What another wonderful day at Vogue Knitting Live! Today I didn't take any classes today, but I did do some great shopping (I will do a post on that later ;] )! I started off the day by helping out my LYS owner with setting up her booth. My LYS owner is Kathleen she owns the Pins and Needles yarn shop in Princeton, New Jersey. Once the marketplace opened I went over towards my first lecture of the day which was given by Susan Gibbs (the owner of Juniper Moon Farm). She talked about her story and how she got started. Upon listening to the lecture I signed up for her last yarn CSA.
Next I met Mrs. Deangelo for lunch and she we met her daugher, Vallery, for lunch as well. The Vogue Knitting cafe was a great idea on Vogue's part after the previous years food problems. We also stopped at a couple booths to pick up somethings. There was a great photo booth on the floor of the marketplace and we took a picture together.
After we had lunch, Mrs. Deangelo and Vallery had to go to classes so I roamed around the marketplace and picked up some more things. I also saw the Steven and Stephen fashion show which was quite a spectacle ;). The knitted pieces were spectacular even though the presentation wasn't to my liking. I then went to a lecture on photography for the blog. It was wonderful and was presented by a representative of www.kollabra.com. I learned a lot about how to add to my photography. It was great.
From the lecture, I went to the marketplace and made some great purchases. I then finished out the day with a great italian meal and some realxing TV. Thanks for reading!
What a great start to Vogue Knitting Live! I did a lot today! I started off with a class taught by Susan B Anderson. It was called Three Wee Sheep and we learned how to knit different loop texture stitches. I was able to get through the body and I just have to add the ears, feet, and face.
I had such a great time in the class and all of the people that were in the class were great!
After the class my mom and I went out to lunch. Afterwards I helped my LYS owner set up her booth for the evening market place. My afternoon class was with these two great guys named Arne and Carlos. Their class was called Dancing Around the Christmas Tree Balls (they said that they have become immune to all the ball jokes :] ). I loved all of the possibilities that their books offer. I got only about half of the ball done.
I hope to finish the ball soon and get a book signed by them! Immediately following the class I headed over to the marketplace and I met my favorite knitter in the world, Mrs. Deangelo! Mrs. Deangelo was my librarian and she taught me to knit. We stopped at Tess Yarns, Knitty City, Dragonfly Yarns, Steven Be, and others. I said hello to my favorite male knitter, Josh Bennett! I was so happy to see him and I hope to see him again this weekend!
We then went and said hello to Steven West, one of my favorite designers. It was great to meet him and I can't wait to see more of his designs!
Finally, Lion Brand had sponsored the knitting of the 7 yarn wonders of the world, This one was my favorite! I love the sweater on it!
I hope you have a knit-filled day and thanks for reading!
