I was fortunate enough to attend the knitting convention put on by Vogue Knitting Magazine in Manhattan this past weekend and had a wonderful time. In addition to the classes, lectures, fashion shows and vendors, they added a new activity this year.....the Readers' Runway Show.
They asked for applications from knitters showing an article they had knitted from the magazine and chose 30 items to be modeled on the fashion runway. This is the item I applied with and was overjoyed to be accepted!
The other fun thing was that I was able to take 3 classes with my newly favorite knitware designer, Stephen West. As I said in my last blog, he really has a talent for designing VERY DIFFERENT items than your average sweater. Here I am with him in his "YES" themed outfit, which he used as the central idea for the class to convince us to try new ways of knitting.
