Sturbridge, MA

While people trekked down to Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this past weekend, a few of us, from the shop, went in the exact opposite direction. Not because we were driving away from fibery goodness, rather we headed to the New England Needlework Association Show in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

This photo is the one shot of the place we went.

Here are a few of the folks we met:

Norah Gaughan the writer of Knitting Nature and the Director of Berroco. We love Norah's designs and we obviously love Berroco as we carry a lot of their yarns.

We met Guido from "It's a Purl, Man" podcast and blog. Granted he would not let me take a photo of the neon green sweater his aunt made him- he did show off this piece that he is currently knitting. Also, admire what appears to be the a tablecloth is actually the chuppa that he, his fiance, and his LYS knit (according to Guido 95% was knit by his shop). If you want to avoid listening to someone stumble on the difference between Montclair and Upper Montclair then don't listen. Otherwise, he should be posting the podcast from this trip shortly.

Also, we ran into Iris Schreir who taught a class on modular knitting at the shop in 2005. Iris is working on a sample from her new new book called Reversible Knits. Based on the sample, we can't wait to see the book! Iris was at the Artyarns booth and let me tell you it was really hard to resist the cashmere.

Tomorrow, I will post a photo of the yarn we are bringing back to the shop.

Happy Knitting!
