Project two for Camp Loopy 2013 is done. Requirement was to knit a pattern that has been popular with other knitters,
that you haven’t knit before. The project needs to have at least 1000
projects listed (or 1000 queued up) on Ravelry, and it needs to use at
least 500 yards, single stranded.
I took a bag class at The Village Quilter with a few of my quilting buddies. I could have easily made the bag myself but it is fun to sew with others. And of course, support the local quilt store/small businesses.
Pattern: Birdie Fling by Amy Butler
I like this bag. It is nice and roomie. I haven't decided if I'm going to keep it or give it away.
I went to Vogue Knitting Live which was held at the New York Marriott Marquis in Time Square. I took NJ Transit into the city, spent 4 hours (which was more than enough time) at VKL. I went through the marketplace twice and saw two fashions shows. Nicky Epstein's was really, really nice. I then met my BFF at Virgils for lunch, went shopping and came home. A very enjoyable day.
