I’m back from Vogue Knitting Live, Seattle — and as usual, I had a blast at this show! I got to see a bunch of friends, be inspired by a wealth of talented designers, teach crafty recruits how to knit & crochet at the Bernat Beginner Lounge, giveaway yarn to a bunch of knitters, do a little shopping, show attendees my upcoming yarns, and otherwise just wallow in the goodness that is this knitting show! Here, for your viewing pleasure is a photo recap of my 3 days at VK Live. Enjoy! –Vickie

I’m in love with these, owl-topped hexagonal needles that the folks at

I’m definitely going to order the Log Cabin-topped US 15s!)
