If you can make it there
On the other side of the country this weekend, in the city never sleeps was a little thing called Vogue Knitting Live. Sockateers Cockeyed and Etta Mae (otherwise known as Debbi and Susan) were joined by Massachusetts Mama Marcy (aka KnittingGolfer) to spread the yarny goodness with students and shoppers alike in the Big Apple.
In addition to our own yarn and patterns, we shared our booth with some of our favorite independent designers. This is how we work, as part of the great knit circle of life. Designers manifest dreams into in reality through sketches, swatches and samples. My colors and yarn get to take the form of their inspiration. Knitters respond to the siren call of a great pattern and start their own magical journey. We’re all in this together, as a tightly knit community (even the loose knitters).
So, a big thank you to the designers who helped out at the Blue Moon Fiber Arts booth, in spirit, as well as pattern. If you didn’t have a chance to get to New York (like me and most of the knitting world), please check out their fabulous designs online.

My dream is to create a community of great knitting, through color, fibers, the unique visions of designers, and the creations from the needles of all knitter.
