I have attempted to gather my thoughts on such a full weekend.

Friday:  worked the market at Tess’ Yarns, one of my ABSOLUTE favorite vendors.  It is no exaggeration when I say the colors and fibers are DELISH and the value can’t be beat!

Saturday: TWO CLASSES!  Shopped last year and put in my raffle tickets.  Since I was working at Tess’ Yarns (again…’cause I LOVE them!) on Sunday, I  was present when they called my name, and I won a Broadway Baby class package!!!

First class: Plug N Play Pullovers with Melissa Leapman…yes, it was a knit class 🙂

Second class:  Outlined Tunisian Diamonds with Lily Chin

Sunday:  Hip to be Square Mitered Squares with Melissa Leapman…yes, another knit class

My classroom buddy Violet (whom I adopted from @catherinesgirls) tagged along. I think my efforts met her approval 🙂

My friend Sahara Briscoe (@BronxChampion) has a great post with 7 pictures on Instagram. (Notes from the Knitiverse)

You can find the two free crochet patterns I dropped for Tess Designer Yarns at my Ravelry page:

Thank you to everyone for stopping by, smiling and saying hi, sharing your work and your stories, supporting your local event or traveling for miles, shopping and getting to know the people and the yarns at the booth.  It was nice to see friends from the local crochet and knitting guilds, other familiar faces and meet so many new people.

And because…pictures or it didn’t happen:

A shout out to the crew at Tess Designer Yarns; it was great to work with you again!  Until next time…


Happy Hookin’!
