Last year Vogue Knitting Live was SO INSPIRING. I picked out two projects there that were a big challenge for me, and I sincerely believe they moved me up a level or two in my knitting skeelz. This year I had a different perspective, I felt I could do anything–even that cap sleeved, turtleneck dress there from Vogue Knitting’s Fall Issue. It’s BEAUTIFUL in person.
I really wanted to make a giant chunky cableknit blanket from that ridiculous alpaca, but it was $200- a skein and required 3 skeins, so I passed on that project. I went with my new friend Ariel, who I taught to knit in about 10 minutes, and who promptly just knit up a few awesome cowls and is now working on a 3-d fox scarf- What? She had the cutest outfit on. Angela was one of my VKL partners last year so she knew what we were in for-which was almost 5 hours of fiber madness.
