I ran into a wonderful knitter who I had only met online and we felt like old friends. I was wearing a sweater I made from the cover of a recent magazine.
Besides the excellent yarn shopping opportunities my other favorite thing at VKL is the "Readers' Runway Show". There are many other fashion shows with professional models put on by yarn companies but in the "Readers'" show amateur knitters have a chance to model items they have made from the pages of Vogue Knitting Magazine.
I was chosen along with 25 others to be in this show and it was definitely the high point of the weekend! We all met early backstage and learned some modeling tips. It was so much fun meeting other knitters and seeing each other's projects. Here are some pictures of the models in their outfits, startinwith me in my bright fuchsia beaded tunic and also some interesting knitted items I saw at the show. AND I am already working on my next sweater to apply to the READER's RUNWAY SHOW which will be held at VOGUE KNITTING LIVE in New York in Jan so stay tuned!
