Chiaogoo tunisian hooks at this booth called Glory-ous Knits at the market. They had a nice variety of sizes of cable tunisian hooks as well as knitting needles and standard hooks.
Crochetville, and Bobbie Matela and Kathleen Sams of Coats & Clark.
North Light Fibers out of Rhode Island and really loved their yarn. They had a really nice feel to them that is hard to describe. It was very soft, but not overly fuzzy. The owners, Sven & Laura Risom, make the yarn on Block Island, RI. I met them and will hopefully get to help them provide some pattern support for their beautiful yarn.
Nancy Smith and Brenda Bourg.
The green shrug just left of center in this picture (with the red ribbon) was made by a new friend I met at the conference named Jennifer Ryan. She has been published a couple of times in Crochet Today.
In other news, I've been swatching for a future design project the last few days, and knitting (I know, I'm sorry!)
The girls and I started our 2012-13 school year today. We are using a year-round schedule so that we can have more frequent breaks -- we get to take off every 5th week. It's going pretty well. It is 3:15pm here and we just have a little science reading left to do. Not bad for starting around 9am.
I'd love to hear what you see that you like in the design contest entries! (Nothing negative please). There are close-ups of all the winners on Doris Chan's blog. Did you attend the conference? What was your favorite part?
