Surprise at Knit and Crochet Festival

Over the weekend, I got a little mommy break and was able to get to the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival for the afternoon. I went with my cousin, Rebecca, (yes the same one that crochets for me and had a baby about a month before me). I can not tell you how much I enjoyed my afternoon out. It is always the best to be around people who love crafting as much as you do, and the bonus of being able to share that with my family is great!

While walking around the booths, we spotted RaeAnne. My other fabulous crocheter, Diane, made this for herself out of Highland Alpaca. And Highland Alpaca loved it so much they displayed in their booth with a few copies of Blueprint Crochet. Seeing it in person was a delight. Her version is just stunning. And I also got to ooh and aah over their Bamboo Blend. Very unique!

It was also great being able to check out yarn and notions for more then 5 seconds. Baby A (Rebecca's cutie) let us have almost an hour, what a sweet girl she is!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Oh that must have been so enjoyable for you! And I can't imagine what it would be like to see your own patterns made by others in so many variations - very exciting!

You were here?! So sorry that I didn't get to see you and say hi! I had my "Maggie Wrap" motifs in my bag and I certainly would have pulled them out to show you.

I was thinking about you while I was at the festival this year since I enjoyed taking your class so much last year. I hope when you are back to teaching you'll come back to Pittsburgh again. And maybe by then I'll have a finished Maggie Wrap to wear. :-)

I only got to go for about 2 hrs on Saturday! :) It was terrific though!
