Chain Link Part 2

 More highlights from the Knit & Crochet Show.  I took 3 classes (I love learning more and the show is a great time to learn, since I'm a captive audience!)  Above is one of the renowned teachers, Darla Fanton. I took a class with her last year on Tunisian Entrelac. I was honored and a bit flabbergasted when she bought my book and asked me to sign it.
 Here I am with my pal and one of my favorite designers, Kimberly McAlindin.  
In this photo, Kimberly is wearing Doris Chan's new pattern "Cat's Cradle" which debuted at the show and will be available soon. Concerning Kimberly's designs, if you go on the Caron website, you will find a boatload of graceful wearable garments that are Kimberly's hallmark.
 Here is L-R, Susan Lowman, Andee Graves, and my roomie, Doris Chan. Search for all over their patterns on Ravelry under the 'Pattern' Tab, enter their name and you'll see it all come up. :) 

Here I am with my new friend Jenny King.  She wrote a book I have on my shelf, Bavarian Crochet and I got to see some of the color wonderful projects in person at the Crochetville and Red Heart booth.  I wish I had brought my copy along so she could have signed it!  On the right is Vashti Braha of Designing Vashti fame. She has a very popular crochet newsletter. I took her 5 peaks Tunisian shawl class at this show.  Wow, how her mind thinks!  So out of the box!  I love learning to see things from a new perspective, so I loved her class.
