Knit & Crochet Show 2014!

Were you there? at the Knit & Crochet Show?  Here are some of the highlights I was able to capture on my camera.Above of course is me and my pal, Doris Chan. We always try to get chocolate cake when we are together! I'm wearing the Bruges Lace Tunic from my new Annie's Online Class, Learn to Crochet Lace: Hairpin, Broomstick and Bruges.

Some members of the CGOA yarn bombed the hotel (with their permission and with the leadership of Jennifer Ryan). I especially like this Boston Strong mandala.

 Here I am with my dear friend, Tammy Hildebrand.  (Thud!  I'm name dropping all over the place!) Her new books are out! Check them out! She signed her newest book, Open Weave Fashions at the show.
 Haley (below) snapped this photo of me at the Fashion Show. The model is wearing Darla Fanton's Marta Shawlette from the Autumn issue of Crochet!
 Here's Haley Zimmerman, tech editor, road-trip pal and roomie, posing next to some yarn bombing outside the hotel.
I had to pose with this pooch who was wearing a lovely crocheted scarf.

Ellen, you were an *awesome* fashion show emcee. You've also been an awesome model in previous fashion shows, so basically you're the Fashion Show Committee's MVP.

As the Fashion Show Committee for 2014, all I can say is, brilliant job, El! And those LEGS! YOWSA!

As designated co-consumer of chocolate cake, I say, Let's have at it!

Yarn bombing is lots of fun isn't it! xx
