Another Awesome Knit-In

As if spring break beginning isn't enough to make me happy, the Madison Knitting Guild held its annual Knit-In this weekend. Marsha and I had a great time there and kept commenting on how wonderful it is to have a friend to share knitting with.

We started out by taking a class on mosaic knitting. The teacher was truly wonderful and had designed a great sampler for us to learn on:
The entire event was just adorable. The theme was "tea" and look at how cute the centerpieces were:

Of course we spent a few hours at the marketplace. We thought it was the best one yet.  We lingered for quite a while at the Ewetopia booth. See the brown & green poncho? That's the one that Marsha and I both knit in gray & black. Marsha bought a pattern and yarn for a different Ewetopia poncho.
I was really blown away by the Yarn Culture booth. Yarn Culture is a store outside  Rochester, NY, that carries exquisite yarns like Woolfolks (which is not easy to find!).  They had really amazing shawl patterns and yarns.
I fell in love with Eden Cottage Yarns, an English brand, and bought a skein and a shawl pattern, which will be on the needles very soon. If you live anywhere near Rochester, I highly recommend a visit.

All in all, it was the perfect start to a vacation.
