This week, I’m headed off to the very first, Vogue Knitting Live conference. I’m really looking forward to it, especially because it’s the first time ever that I’ll be taking (not teaching) formal knitting classes. I can’t wait! I’ve been wanting to soak up some knowledge from the brilliant, knitting master, Mari Lynn Patrick for years. Now’s my chance, in one of her advanced design courses! I’ll also be basking in the light that is Debbie Bliss’s, Traveling Cable class. Woohoo!
When I’m not learnin’, I’ll be teachin’. Well, in the form of serving up some knitty advice, that is. I’ll be helping my friend & VK patterns editor, Lori Steinberg, answer your knitting/crochet questions at the VK Live Pro Bar. If you’re stuck on a project, are having difficulties with a pattern, or just want to say “hi”, stop by the bar on Saturday afternoon from 2-4pm to see me!
But wait, I got ahead of myself. First off, begin the weekend’s festivities at a VK Live adjacent event! I’ll heart you forever, if you grab a cab and come to the Needle Arts book signing evening, at Barnes & Noble in Manhattan.
Join me–along with Yarn Harlot, Debbie Bliss, Nicky Epstein, Debbie Macomber & Iris Shrier– at 7pm this Thursday. We’ll all be there to chat, sign books, answer questions, whateva.
I’m also THRILLED to announce that my writing partner in crime, Adrienne Armstrong, will be there too signing our book, AwareKnits. This is her first book signing ever (she’s been on the road since our book came out, helping promote her hubby’s latest cd), so please come on out and show her a little love–she’s a delight, I tell you!
Hope to see you this weekend!
Psst…I’ll also be Tweeting live from the show, so be sure to follow @VickieHowell.
