Vogue Knitting Live Seattle 2014*

Here are the hours and location for this weekend's Vogue Knitting Live: Meydenbauer Center 11100 NE 6th St, Bellevue, WA 98004 I'll be in booth #221 again this year. Here are the marketplace hours: Friday, March 14th - 5:30pm to 8:30pm Saturday, March 15th - 10:00am to 7:00pm Sunday, March 16th - 10:00am to 4:00pm All the gradient kits in Pebble Sock and Lilt Sock are going, but be warned that some of the colors are down to 1 or 2 sets. Friday will be a madhouse, but I hope we'll be able to help everyone find what they really want. I'm also taking quite a bit of Lilt Sock in my regular multis as well as all the shades of Whimsical Solids. Some complementary Pebble Sock and Sublime will also be making an appearance as well as patterns from the likes of Star Athena, Stick Chick Knits, Irish Girlie Knits, Laura Aylor, Brooklyn Tweed, to name just a few. I will be accepting credit card payments as well as cash, but no personal checks. Don't forget, King County has a mandatory 9.5% sales tax. I hope to see lots of you there! I'll be trying to tweet occasionally with the hashtag #vklive, if you care to see pictures, etc. *Okay, if you're from Seattle (like me) you know that Meydenbauer Center is NOT in Seattle. But Vogue Knitting Live Bellevue just isn't as catchy, right? It sounds like an event at a Gotham-esque mental institution. My two cents.

Spring KAL: Goloring

For our second exclusive knit-along of 2014, we'll be working with another gradient kit to make a graceful cabled scarf called Goloring by M K Nance. If you'd like to hear more about the source of the pattern title, check out this brief Wikipedia page. The pattern includes written and charted instructions. You'll need to pre-order the kit, which includes one gradient in Pebble Sock as well as a paper copy of the pattern. You'll also need to have a long US 4 (3.5mm) needle, stitch markers, a cable needle and a darning needle. The sample shown in the photo is the Vapor Gradient Kit. Don't forget to join us and show off your kits and finished scarves on my Ravlery group, in our special Q2 KAL thread. Here are the color selections I've put up. Please feel free to choose "other" from the drop-down menu and pick another gradient color from my Pinterest page in the checkout notes. When ordering the kit for this KAL, please keep in mind that I will be in Seattle/Bellevue for Vogue Knitting Live and will be taking down my Etsy sight for a small amount of time before and after the event. I plan to ship pre-orders the week after I arrive back from VKL. A note about ordering and shipping: as with all KAL pre-orders, this kit will ship separately from all else and will not be eligible for free shipping. Thanks for understanding! Look for my RCYC 2014 wrap-up tomorrow, but tonight maybe I'll see you at the Yarn Harlot signing?

Vogue Knitting Live Seattle 2013

An amazing thing is happening in my house - yarn is piling up by the kilo getting ready to go to my very first solo fiber show! Vogue Knitting Live is coming to the West Coast, at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. I really wish I could share pictures, but somewhere in all that flying wool my camera has gone native. I'll have a lot of yarn with me at the show, but there are two things I want to highlight: 100 % US ranched, milled and hand-dyed Targhee wool bulky weight in 250 gram skeins and Special Handpaints on special sale. You'll have to come by booth #221 to check these things out, and I look forward to seeing you!
