Wish I went to Vogue knitting LIVE.

I would love to have gone to the Vogue Knitting Live event in New York this past weekend. Reading posts and comments of those who went to this wonderful event makes me drool.  I can only imagine what it was like…. Many famous knitters/Authors were there all under one roof in New York. 

I need to brag a bit.  My son Steven sang at Carnegie Hall a couple of times and wanted to hear him sing there, so my sister and I went there to see and hear him sing, then took a tour of New York.  Wow, there is so much to do there and to eat!  Lots of wonderful restaurants.  And of course we had to go to the Statue Of Liberty!  I know, I know, tourist….

A few of my friends and I were fortunate enough to go to STITCHES West a couple of years ago in the Bay Area. It was my first time to attend an event like this and I hope it’s not the last. There were classes offered for beginners, all the way to the more experienced. I did not have time to take a class, but I had plenty of time to buy yarn (that was more important to me at the time). So many choices to make like how much to buy of a type of yarn and what colorway. Then there were all of the gadgets, I love gadgets! Like special clips that hold seams together more easily for you so you can finish your sweater or whatever.  So many knitting needles to choose from…and patterns galore!…….need I go on.

Well, all this to say that I was a bit jealous that I couldn’t go. I live on the other side of the US so it would not be practical. But if you knit and (or) crochet, I encourage you to go to an event such as this, because you will be inspired and will want to learn more about your craft.
