Video Blog–Knit Out ’08

Hey all. I’m back from the Knit Out at the Mall of Americas in Mineapolis. It was cruisazy–I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many knitter’s & crocheters in one place. I think they were estimating something like 50,000! I’m serious.

I brought my new little Flip camera (the one I bought after seeing Jennifer’s video blogging brilliance) with me on the trip and made a 1st time attempt at using iMovie today. So, instead of giving my same ol’ written account of the road less raveled, I put together this little number.  Enjoy!

(Here’s the YouTube link if you want to watch it without it being cut-off on the side from my blog’s formatting.  Feel free to grab the code while you’re there and embed it in your own blog. :))
P.S.  Hey NoCal-ers!  Don’t forget, Stitches West is in 3 days.  See you there!

    Thanks for signing the world’s first and only “Knit On” Converse Sheep Shoe for me in Minneapolis! I put it on my blog and Ravelry, and I guess Converse better get in touch with your agent now. Who wouldn’t want a pair of “Vickies” by Converse?
