Julia here. I carried my camera around the New York Sheep & Wool festival fully intending to document every familiar face, and the day started out well enough. Right away I ran into Cheryl Burke (designer of Cottage Garden) with her pal, Nicole.
I hung out with Alison Green Will (Tiveden), found Margaret Atkinson (Botanical Lace), Anne Hanson (Artichaut), Véronik Avery (Papineau), and Clara Parkes (Swatch It!), but that's about when I forgot to take pictures. It wasn't until sometime during the Ravelry party, where I spotted Kay and Ann of The Problem Ladies, and heard tell of Pam Allen (Vaganova) knocking about the place, that I remembered myself, and got Team Rav together, all sporting sweaters featured in Twist! Don't they all look fantastic? Jess, you need to make a blue Vaila: Gudrun's really set off your lovely eyes. Three words: Malabrigo Azul Profundo.
And now for two of the most photographed things of the weekend: the Ravelry party cupcakes:
And Bob. No doubt you've seen Ysolda's Bob head on the blogs by now, but Irene got some special attention while we were waiting for the bus . . .
a special Bob kiss. I love this shot. I may make it my desktop for the next month. Cheers!
