Knit Picks had a little holiday craft night last Thursday. It was a cozy time at West Elm in the Pearl District, a sweet store full of all the things that would make your home look gorgeous, any time of year.
Lots of crafters came to play. I didn’t bring my current project, so I looked for inspiration in these books…
which came home with me. There was yarn to sample.
I think I’m going to have to put a holiday hat together with these colors. All planned out; I just have to do the knitting.
I met Kim, who was wearing my Fern Shawlette.
And I got to see my friend Stacey! She’s the Independent Designer Partnership coordinator (and much more) at Knit Picks. I’ve known her since before she started at Knit Picks, when our blogs crossed paths.
Lots of fun and inspiration. Thanks to Knit Picks for inviting me!
Are you knitting gifts? I don’t usually, but this year I have a plan for a couple. Let’s see if I can actually make it happen. So many fun things to knit, so little time! My friend Carole and I wore our Pippi Hats while selling Christmas trees last week. I knit hers for Christmas last year.
Or it may be that she received a box full of yarn, and a promise. That sounds familiar. A quick check on Ravelry shows that I knit it February 6-9. Gotta love Ravelry for keeping me honest!
Hoping your needles are flying!
