Lion Brand Yarn was happy to be back for the second year in a row. We had yarn to sample, garments to try on, free demos and wonderful guests stop by, including Anna Hrachovec, Ruth Marshall and Dora Ohrenstein. We really loved meeting so many knitters and crafters at our booth, and took as many pictures as we could of their fantastic handmade garments.
On Sunday I taught two classes (Knitting Surgeon Level I: Mistakes and How to Fix Them and Knitting Surgeon Level 2: Alterations and Major Fixes) to 43 wonderful students who were all eager to learn and very talented. During my last class I remembered to take a picture of some of the students holding up their swatches (check them out in the slide show above).
Thank you to everyone who came to VK Live, stopped by our booth or took my classes. You certainly made our second year at the convention a wonderful and memorable one.
