A Knitter's Dream

I had the pleasure of attending a trunk show at Another Yarn in Winchester, Massachusetts this weekend.  Despite a New England snow storm, the show was well attended.  (Nothing can keep a knitter from her wool.)  Sarah Dimond (The Plucky Knitter) was there with her gorgeous yarn.  I felt like I was meeting celebrities.  I became all shy and couldn't speak.  I don't know how I got the courage to ask if I could take a photo, but somehow I did.

There were so many beautiful colors to choose from.  It was a real exercise in restraint to not get one of each.
One of my favorite designers, Cecily Glowik MacDonald (Winged Knits) was there with her books and patterns and samples.  She was really sweet and signed my copy of Weekend Hats.  She was wearing her latest design - Oakwood.  It was gorgeous.

Thea Colman (Baby Cocktails) was there with her patterns and samples too.

The trunk show inspired me to pick up the needles again.
It was a knitter's dream.
