I am back in Tofino after a fun weekend at Knit City in Vancouver. It was a fun weekend of yarn, classes and fun people. I had a chance to catch up with my teacher Kate Atherley from Toronto who taught me how to knit socks! It was great to see her again. Also chatted with Alexa Ludeman from Gourmet Crafter and came home with LOTS of her yarn which will be available on the online store soon.
Since I was already in the Vancouver area I also made a stop over to SweetGeorgia’s studio! It was so amazing to see where all the magic happens. Had a chance to talk to her about what inspires her. Stay tuned for that video blog. Will be coming in the next couple of weeks! For now the pictures will have to do! To see more photos of my weekend in Vancouver check out Knits by the Sea’s Facebook page!
It was a really fun first day at Knit City in Vancouver today. It was amazing to see so many eager people for the festival patiently lining up outside the event for the market place to open (helps they all had some knitting!). It was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new people. I even had a chance to catch up with teacher Kate Atherley who taught me how to knit socks back when I lived in Toronto! Wish I could post some of the photos that I took but sadly I left my connector in Tofino. So stay tuned for more pictures (and some video!) about my time at Knit City in Vancouver. It was a busy day and I’m looking forward to doing it all over again tomorrow. So if you are in the Vancouver area tomorrow the market place will be open from 11:00 – 5:00 at the Croatian Cultural Centre at 3250 Commercial Drive.
