This weekend, New York has been buzzing with knitters, as the annual Vogue Knitting Live event has taken place these past three days.
This is the first time that I have participated in this event and it is certainly not the last. What a source of inspiration!
I was there during one day only and it was not enough, as new techniques, advice and tips seem to keep popping up everywhere. I managed to participate in a very informative and good class given by the New York based knit & crochet designer, Lily Chin, on how to change garments into knit pieces - something I definitely need to try out.
Jacqueline Fink from Australia gave a very inspiring presentation on her extreme knitting, which was something else out of the (other side of) the World!
And finally, I was totally overwhelmed by all the wonderful yarn stalls presented at the market place. Something for every taste, style and colour. In fact, now I think of it, it might be good I was there only one day, or I might have tripled my yarn stash with all these wonderful yarns.
I can only recommend you to also pass by the Vogue Knitting live event, if you get a chance - you feel so much at home among all those talented knitters, and most importantly you'll learn a lot!
