BEHOLD! The power of the knitted dinosaur!
This portrait was taken at our KIP last week where even in spite of rampaging temperature, several brave souls met to trip the needles fantastic!
Kandy, who hails from Arkansas, was in Chicago on business, and stopped by for a little rockin’ fun – she was wearing a very sophisticated knitted ensemble that was to die for. So much fun to visit and knit – at the end of the evening, what a wonderful treat to have made a new friend!
More knitterly get togethers!
HABU Textiles, in town for Stitches Midwest, made a guest trunk show appearance at Nina’s on Division.
Even the duck soup temperatures didn’t deter Theresa & I from exploring the fabulous fibers of Habu – I came away with a couple of very intriguing scarf kits. One is called Kushu Kushu and is a pairing of fine gauge merino and something so intriguing you have to see it to believe it – silk stainless. This will be a scarf with a center wool section bordered by gossamer rippling metal silk – gorgeous!
Meeting Takako Ikejiri was delightful! Her designs and vision are modern, clean and very inspiring. Everytime I see these yarns in person, I fall more in love with the subtle, neutral shades Takao has put together in the collection.
