Knit City 2016

This was my 4th time as a vendor at Knit City in Vancouver, BC. This event has been getting bigger and better every year. I don't have pictures of other booths because I was too busy to wander around.

I do need lessons on taking selfies, but this is me with my friend Sheila, who is always willing to be a travel buddy. She is more than that, a HUGE help with the setup and take down. Drinks and dinner each evening.

 This is how we spend our evenings - the Atrium Inn right across from the venue site, has a lovely large lobby area - a great place to sit and enjoy other knitters' company and share a glass or two.

A customer came by modelling her Pi shawl that she knit, using 2 skeins of my October sparkle colourway, and a brown skein. The picture does not do it justice - it was stunning.

 A group of knitters all the way from Prince Rupert, BC with grumpy cat in the middle. She was just pretending.
The keynote speaker this evening was Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka the Yarn Harlot. No one could stay grumpy when she talked.
Already planning for next year!
