Ooh, Yarn Con was fun. A lot of new people got to see the magazine, we met some of our subscribers in person, and let me tell you, the fiber–er, people–watching was delightful. Everyone attending seemed to have taken the opportunity to show off a handknit, from Ysolda shawls to a Dutch girl cap (out of Malabrigo?), of course, Owls, an impressive Paper Dolls sweater and many more I couldn't name but wanted to touch!
Ms. SABLE blogged nicely about our experience there, too, with pics.
Thanks a million to her for driving there and back while I tried not to fall asleep. She even scored free parking right next to the event!
We scored big on yarn support for the magazine; check it out:
Exhibit A, Sophie's Toes superwash merino sock yarn in colorway Iris Garden.
Exhibit B, Yarn Hollow Merino/ Bamboo/Nylon superwash sock yarn in color Lemon-Lime.
Coming soon–more yarn!
But now it's time to fly through the rain in my magic minivan to pick up the kids.
