No Rest for the Wicked

First day of the show. Here's Deb working away on the new baby booklet patterns. She never stops! I'm behind the camera, waiting on a store owner who is looking at our patterns.
We had a good day, pre-selling the Baby V booklet, selling our other books, patterns and yarn, meeting with friends in the business, chatting with store owners we've dealt with for some years, meeting new customers and generally catching up on the news.

Lucy Neatby dropped by looking subdued as ever (this is a joke as Lucy sports pink and blue hair and about 67 colours in her outfit); Lily Chin wandered past in her bright green crocheted top and skirt; Deb chatted with Ann Hanson (Deb reads her blog every day) and Stephanie Pearl McPhee ( ); Vicki Square (Knit Kimono published by Interweave Press) rested in our booth so we had a look through her book with her. We had dinner with Robin Melanson (she has a cool new book out "Knitting New Mittens & Gloves: Warm Your Hands in 28 Innovative Ways" and her book signing is on Sunday), Lana from LanaKnits, Hemp for Knitting and her business partner & daughter Melissa amoungst others. OK, enough name dropping!

Deb is knitting another pair of her new socks, Queen's Castle, and I've just taken my shrug (which is turning into a summer top) off the needles to try on. The colour in the picture is off as it's knit in our Cotton Tweed DK in lime, which is a lot brighter and a very pretty green.

And now, it's time for bed.


  1. it was so good to meet you in person, too; glad your show is going well!

  2. I so wish I could have been there too! All the people whose blogs I read and whose patterns I collect, and knit would have been wonderful to meet! Or even just stand in awe in front of...... :) samm
