Vogue Magazine Knitting conference

I spent a few days in Minneapolis at the Vogue Magazine Knitting Live conference at the beginning of November taking classes and honing my skills, plus attending lectures, shopping the specialized marketplace and picking up new tools of the trade, and of course enjoying the company of friends and the City's famous Eat Street.

I met one of my idols, the super talented toy designer Susan B. Anderson and was fortunate to enjoy a great toy making class taught by her. This is my little Hedgie from class.

I also got to take classes by two other Fantastic designers I've wanted to meet.... Gudrun Johnston and Mary Jane Mucklestone.

Prior to the conference a gala party was held at Steven Berg's shop, Stevenbe's. It was so much fun meeting dozens of local designers and dyers..... and of course more shopping. Steven and his staff know how to throw a party!

The Minneapolis yarn bomber known as Knitteapolis dropped a few pieces around the convention centre.

And of course, as I said..... hanging out with friends was the best part!
