I got to catch up with old friends like Jill, Cal, Melissa, Kristen, and Angela.... and make new ones, like Sandi, Jennifer, Sharon, Lisa, Beth and so many more.
During the days I taught and worked in the marketplace at my table. Evenings were filled with conversation that would make my non-knitting friends eyes roll back in their heads with confusion and boredom, but LAWS, it was satisfying and inspiring for me. Saturday night I might have even done my "zoolander" strut for the fashion show, lucky for me it looks like I was too fast for anyone to catch it on camera!
A photo before the "shopping" started in the marketplace... I was lucky enough to be right next to Jill's goodies!
Lisa Meyers, the US distributor for Manos del Uruguay came and gave an incredibly interesting talk about Manos' business mandate and spinning and dyeing techniques... they are definitely an overseas company you can feel good about! (If you look closely at the pic she is holding up you will see giant hanks of yarn on a metal hook being dipped into a huge dye cauldron.)
My VERY studious Eventide class, hard at work!
My newest BFF Kristen, wearing a Butin, and learning Eventide! You go girl!Zoe from last month's classes at The Livingston Arts center? Well, she and her handlers (Serena, Janis and Pattie) came to see me and learn all about Knitting Jewelry with Beads.... and then she agreed to model (or munch on) her Mama's GORGEOUS finished Kinetik for me!
Huge thanks go out to Susan for the wonderful weekend! Not sure I can wait until next April to do it again!
