Marly Bird's Yarn Thing Designer Dinner event! Above, a collection of yarns from Tahki Stacy Charles including their Cotton Classic Lite, which I used in the Bruges Skirts in the Spring 2012 of Interweave Crochet. The bottom left yarn is a lovely metallic. The top left is a tweedy, but very interesting yarn with blues and golds.
Skacel's SimpliWorsted by HiKoo (it's a superwash merino/acrylic blend...very soft); Patons Classic Wool (Superwash) DK (yay for a new DK!); Kraemer Perfection (30% domestic merino and 70% acrylic) yay for the USA! It's a quality chunky weight yarn.
Random House Audio Books! Most crafters LOVE a great audio book while we work or do chores, and I'm one of them! In my swag bag was this copy of Anna Quindlen's "Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake" (was it a coincidence that I, of all people, received on that references cake?)
Now, to finish up with a photo of more great people I got to see this weekend:
