This past weekend I flew to Hartford for Stitches East, which is basically a knitting convention for yarnies. I went to meet Joelle, the color genius, brains and brawn behind Wandering Wool. I was there to help sell her delectable hand-dyed yarns, as well as to see if I could peddle some of the bags I’ve been sewing (Joelle was kind enough to let me hang them up in her booth). Here’s a brief photo sampling of the show.
Joelle and Kanitta ready to sell stuff!
Joelle and I made cowls from the bulky wool we bought from Kelly at Romney Ridge Farm. In Joelle’s case, she used a skein of her own “Saranac” yarn for the stripe. You can see my next color plan on the bottom, and I think Kanitta will share photos of hers when it’s done too! Joelle and I were very, very tired when we took that picture, so don’t look at the bags under our eyes. More close-ups and pattern to come!
All in all, we had a good time. We met a lot of wonderful people (whom I’ll tell you more about in future posts) and learned a lot. Next time I’m hoping to take some classes from some of the knitting superheros that were there.
