The Craft Yarn Council of America Knit Out is coming this weekend and I am going to be there! Yipppe!! I am flying out on Friday and coming back on Sunday. We are leaving the kiddos with my SIL and I am taking hubby along with me for our very first weekend alone together. This is a huge deal for us. We have never left the kids behind for anything....would we survive without them?
But about the KnitOut, I am going to be doing a few loom knitting demos on both Saturday and Sunday. I am scheduled for these demos:
11am: Table E
3:30pm: Table E
11am: Table D
2pm: Table A
Come by my demo and pick up one of these cute little looms, made especially for this event. It is a little 10 peg, fine gauge single sided rake. I am going to be giving them away to those who come by my demo table. I prepared a handout too that will have a pattern to use with this loom: it is a simple headband pattern.
I am all ready...even went to pick up a little luggage to carry all my junk with me. And, I even had some business cards made. I am excited about sharing a little bit of my world with knitters out there. I hope my demos are well received. If you are around, please stop by...especially if my table is empty.
Stop the presses! I just found out that I will be interviewed by Candi Jensen from the Knit & Crochet Today show. So exciting! Before accepting the invite, I had to find out if the interview was going to be live--I was assured that it wouldn't so I am less frantic about it...still, I hope I don't make a fool of myself.
In other news, the loom along on Ravelry is going to start soon. After much drawing, frogging, and knitting, I came up with a neat and easy mitten design. Hop on over to the Loom A Long Ravelry group and you can take part of the LAL.
The mitt has a cable around the cuff and then it is stockinette stitch for the main portion of the mitt. The mitt is shaped at the fingers so no extra bulk!
