This past weekend, Hodge and Podge and I flew to New York City to explore, get inspired, catch up with old friends, and make some new ones too.
On Saturday, we attended the Vogue Knitting Live Marketplace. Right off the bat, we were totally enthralled by this installation piece by Lion Brand Yarn. Hodge and Podge had to get a closer look.
Then we met some very nice ladies who were running the Resobox amigurumi booth. Amigurumi artists Bon_chic (Instagram handle) and Lumièna were helping to spread the love of amigurumi, one knitter at a time. They really enjoyed meeting Hodge and Podge. I was most impressed with the Apple watches by Bon-chic and a large crochet monkey by Lumiena. It was so nice to meet crochet amigurumists at a knitting show!
We did some shopping at the marketplace, of course. I came away with some really cool sock yarn. Hodge and Podge picked out some great beads.
Finally, we added our favorite motto to the Purls of Wisdom wall.
What a wonderful time we had. Thanks, Vogue Knitting Live! Thanks, New York!
