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 (janerichmond.com) and Shannon Cook (luvinthemommyhood.com) 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!
