Yesterday, I hung out with Miss Dianne of Creatively Dyed, and we perused the throngs of the Hilton Hotel that allowed us knitters to take over for a weekend. I had a blast!
I got to see the String Luxury Yarns fashion show, and fell in love with this ensemble. It is made with 100% Cashmere yarn called Tessa. The yarn comes in 650 yd skeins, and doesn its own self-coloring pattern design. It is absolutely beautiful, and totally luxurious.
I also met Vicki Howell from the show Knitty Gritty.
I am sad that the show is no longer on the air, but I used to watch it religiously when it aired and it helped me to expand my knitting horizons a whole lot. Vicki was very sweet, and was happy that her show inspired me to do so many different things with my knitting. Woohoo!
I also got to FINALLY see MochiMochi Land. I missed it dyring the original New York premiere. OMG! This exhibit it so cute.
I also went to the Qiviuk Display and fell in love with this sweater.
It came from a rugged MuskOx and was transformed into this delicate, beautiful, creation. Absolutely stunning!
And of course, I got some knitting in. I started a Thermis for myself, using KnitPicks Chroma. I was actually walking and knitting, and a few people were astonished at that. Well, I guess I can say it's an ordinary thing for me. Besides that, here are the rest of the things I acquired at the event. I had a ton of fun, and will definately do it again. They warmed up the coldest day of the year thusfar, with some warm and inspiring knits.
