YarnCon was busier than ever this year. It's great to see this event growing more and more every year. I even had students in my classes who traveled from other states to be at the event. That's so awesome!
Obligatory YarnCon photo from the balcony. We all take the same photo. :)
On Saturday, I taught two classes: Be Fab with Garter Tab and New Directions in Shawl Shapes. I love that I get to talk shawl stuff all day as my job.
my new Duvessa cowlette.
CJ Kopec Creations there. I had been a part of her fiber club many years ago. I loved it. Now it's time to try the yarn.
When me and Jenny get together, there will be yarn buying. Oh yes, there will be yarn buying.
Sunday brought another class. I taught Decorative Shawl Bind Offs and was able to make another round at the market. It was definitely less crowded on Sunday. I actually could get into the Leading Men Fiber Arts & Knitcircus booths that day to chat.
Now for the good stuff - the haul!
First stop was Art Institchtute for project bags. She has lots of great fabrics and the bags are very well-made. It's always a favorite stop when at YarnCon.
CJ Kopec Creations. It's 2 skeins of DK-Weight Polwarth/Silk yarn. Yum.
Honey Girl Farms, the artwork on them is by Emily Martian.
my Aranthera shawl and just love it. I'm sure these will become shawls one day too. The pink yarn is sport-weight superwash merino and the the purple-y one is 600 yards of a superwash merino/silk fingering-weight yarn.
