This was the very first time that Stitches held an event in Texas. I was pleased and honored to teach at this inaugural event, and I had a lovely time. The students were engaged and enthusiastic, the venue is beautiful, and the market was spectacular. Being the first event, it was less crowded than other Stitches events. I warned students not to get used to it, because I expect the numbers to grow quickly. This was my first time to visit Texas, and I hope that it will not be my last.
Another first – I was asked to help dress a model for the Fashion Show! It was intense, but a lot of fun.
I found some fabulous yarn in the market to knit Brooke Nico’s lovely Floral Tunic. This pattern is from her book, Lovely Knitted Lace. I swatched as soon as I got home, and am getting started immediately. The yarn is dyed by my friend Carol Sulcowski, who is the genius behind Black Bunny fibers.
