Knit Nation

This weekend I went to Knit Nation for the first time. There was so much stuff to look at that I completely forgot I had my camera, and only remembered when I was upstairs in the cafe.

I bought 5 skeins of undyed yarn (90% wool, 10% nylon) for a real bargain, 2 skeins of beautifully dyed yarn. The first one’s from Nimu yarns and the sparkly yarn is from Krafty Koala.


I also got my book signed by Ysolda who had a setup in the cafe where you could meet her and try on samples of her designs.


I also met Susan Crawford who was talking about her new book of vintage patterns coming out in September. It was a great day, even after struggling through the rain to get there. I’ll definitely be going next year, but hopefully with a larger budget to splurge on all the pretty things!

  1. I really wanted to go to Knit Nation, but things were just too busy. Looks like you had a great time! I wish I could go next year too, but looks like its cancelled due to the Olympics? I’ve got Little Red in the City too, and can’t decide which one to make first!!!

    • Because of the Olympics? No! Damn. I know, it’s difficult to decide, but I really want a Chickadee. Ysolda designs faster than I can get through all her stuff that I want to make!
