Lab Work

Interweave launched Knitting Lab New England last week, and I was on hand as one of the vendors.  Knitting Lab offered an impressive lineup of teachers and classes - twined knitting, double-knitting, brioche, Tyrolean knitting, Bohus knitting, lace knitting, sock knitting and so much more.

I never ventured far from the marketplace, but I had some interesting discussions with students and teachers.  It was an inspiring four days.

Here's a glimpse of the Knitting Lab market.

Manos was one of the sponsors.

As was Biggan Design.

Fun, intense colors.

O-Wool for organic yarn.

Perfect for the season.

Solitude Wool from Virginia featuring locally raised wool.

Representing New England . . . 

Green Mountain Spinnery.

And Harrisville Designs with a rainbow of colors.

The market wasn't just about yarn.

Leslie from Twisted Sistah Beads & Fiber had a wonderful selection. Oh, the beads!  Let's just say I visited her booth more than once.

Beautiful buttons from Melissa Jean Design tempted me to buy the buttons first and figure out the garment later.

After four days of market fun, today I'm shifting gears.  Back to production.
