No, it’s not figure skating. It’s Rosaria!
I am getting such a thrill seeing so many people wearing their Rosaria knitalong shawlettes this weekend on the Rose City Yarn Crawl. My design, interpreted hundreds of ways.
The first sightings were at the Yarn Ball on Wednesday night.
Here’s Samantha, who won yarn from me and knit Rosaria for her mom.
Some of the Rosaria were still on the needles at the Yarn Ball. See the knitter on the right in the front row of the group picture? I ran into her the next day at Pearl Fiber Arts. She had finished her knitting, blocked it on the hotel rug (no pins, even!) and was wearing it when I saw her. That’s dedication!
I made it to five shops on Thursday, and three on Friday. I saw more Rosaria along the way.
What else have I seen?
Emily’s mom rocking the arm knit cowl at Twisted. (I’ve spaced out on her name; I’m sorry.)
Jeanne Carver from Imperial Stock Ranch brought a lamb to Twisted.
And the iconic USA team sweater from the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games in Sochi! These were designed by Ralph Lauren, and knit with Imperial Yarn.
I met Sarah, the dyer of Bumblebirch Yarns, at Pearl Fiber Arts.
Tomorrow (Saturday) I’m having trunk shows at For Yarn’s Sake from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the Knitting Bee from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Come by and say hello!
I love the group photo! It must have been great fun seeing all those lovely knitters wearing your design!
I had so much fun this weekend! Lots and lots of pretty shawls to see, and so many of them were Rosaria! I may have bought some yarn, needles, notions, magazines…
Have fun on the west side! I’ll miss seeing you because I’ll be all around Portland on the north, east and downtown side.
Amazing to see one pattern interpreted so many pretty ways.
