Vancouver’s annual fiber festival, Knit City, took place this past weekend. It was bigger and better this year. Thank you Amanda & Fiona! Two days filled with yarny fun and this time we even had the pleasure of listening to a lecture by the Yarn Harlot herself. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera with me and so all I have is this blurry instagramed picture of her standing behind the podium. And yes, she is that pint-sized IRL!
It was such a hoot, she had us roaring with laughter the entire time. The vendors outdid themselves and I can say for certain that the yarnaholics of our city went home satisfied.
I was very restrained this year with my yarn purchases and also, I bought only one pattern. Self pat on the back I think!
From left to right…
Gonna wind the yarn for the shawl after I’ve narrowed down my pattern choices on Ravelry. Yeah, who am I kidding, this could take a while!!!
We’ve had a crazy phenomenon the past few weeks with much of the Pacific Northwest shrouded in a blanket of thick fog.
What made it crazy was the temperature inversion :: cold in the city where we’re at sea level and warm on the ski slopes where they are already set for ski season! The fog lifted in time for Knit City but it was super cool and so eerie while it lasted.
Fall glorious fall
Soon it will be time for woolly hats and Deck the halls. Can you believe that 2013 is racing to the finish line? 56 days till Christmas, ahhh!!
