Vogue Knitting Live // NYC January 18-20

January 20, 2013

DSC03353For those who don’t know yet I am not just in love with yarns, I am coucou for them.  I heard about the Vogue Knitting live show a couple years ago but was never able to attend. This year I did not want to miss it. The event was held at the Marriott Hotel in NYC (there will be another one held in Seattle in April 5-7) and had more than 60 vendors (My favorite stores Knitty City and Lion Brand Yarns were there!), several fashion shows, classes and cocktail hours. I have never seen so many yarns in one place and I almost went crazy. So here’s a few snapshots of my visit yesterday for those who were not around.

DSC03322I know you are very curious to know what I bought. I was a good girl (almost). I spent about $20 more than I wanted to because I fell in love with the Leilaniart yarn and would not bear not buying it. These yarns are remnants of silk fabrics made in India and come in very beatuful colors. No two are the same that’s what I love about it.

The three following skein are 100% fingering weight Merino wool. The pink was was just because I was thinking of valentines day and the blue one I just loved so much and at $7 each they were a bargain. I also bought 4 balls of LB Baby Alpaca because it was 20% discount compare to the regular 10% student discount I get but also the lady told me they were running out of them in the factory.DSC03358
