Knit City 2012

Vancouver’s very own fiber festival, Knit City, was this past weekend and what a great festival it was!

There was much yarn and fiber to be squished and a wonderful gathering of designers, fiber artists and all-round yarn enthusiasts.  There were also various demos and classes (didn’t sign up for any this time).  Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera with me, so no pictures of the actual vendors and artisans and yarn, yarn, yarn.  I left with quite a nice haul, though 🙂

The highlight of my experience was meeting Jane Richmond ( and Shannon Cook ( in person.  Both of them are so sweet and so talented.  Jane was promoting her latest design collection, Island, along with the rest of her very wearable pattern line.  I managed to get one of the last copies of her book… total fangirl moment!

Also great fun was the Ravelry meet up.  Knitting and chatting with a lovely bunch of ladies including talented designer, Andrea Rangel (Andrea Rangel Knits), was one of the best ways to spend a rainy Saturday in the city!

    Awesome! Shame you forgot your camera, but hey gorgeous additions to the stash. You’re very disciplined. If it were me I think I’d be walking home form the festival because I’d use up every cent I have to buy yarn!
