Did you make it to Vogue Knitting Live last weekend? I had the pleasure of winding up and down the aisles, stopping at all the different stalls to fawn over the gorgeous designs, and touched loads and loads of delicious yarn! Several of our authors were on hand to share their skills and sign books. All in all, it was a wonderfully inspiring weekend. Here are some highlights of things we saw, felt, and loved.
Yarn, yarn, yarn!
I think I could have gone home in a cab stuffed to the gills with yarn and still wouldn’t have been satisfied! There are so many beautiful kinds scattered throughout VK Live, it’s impossible not to go there and spend 90% of your time just petting yarn. Here are a few of my favorites that I spotted:
I love the color combinations in these multicolor yarns
Yarn spun with strips of money
There was a yarn bar for sampling how different kinds of yarns knit up
Hooks and needles
I also spotted these oversized knitting needles and crochet hooks from Loopy Mango that I’m just enamored with! I want some, obviously so I can make giant knit and crochet items with them, but also because I think they would make awesome conversation pieces for the home!
They look a little daunting to wield, but because of their size, I imagine projects knit/crochet up fairly quickly using these tools. A simple scarf or a cozy vest, like the gentleman below is wearing, probably only takes one episode of Downton Abbey to complete, right?
And, I found this sweet woman working on her crochet most encouraging. If she can handle that big hook, so can I!
If you went to VK Live, I hope you enjoyed yourself and were able to snag some great finds. If not, I highly recommend checking it out when it comes to your area. There’s so much to be seen, and you definitely get inspired to take your knitting to the next level by trying out some new yarns, stitches, and tricks that you spot in the stalls and on the runway.
Now, who wants to buy me some of these goodies?
