Knitter's Review
September 29, 2011

Picture this. A glitzy hotel in west Los Angeles, Ferraris lining the curb outside. An ornate lobby of marble and glass, lounge chairs under potted palms. Men in Armani suits mingle with women in shoes taller than most buildings in my town.

And yet, what's this I see? Knitters. An army of yarn-toting women and men claiming their place in the sun, needles fast at work, chatting away with new-found friends. This was the setting for Vogue Knitting Live Los Angeles, which took place last weekend. Care to join me?

This Weekend
Festival-goers, have I got a weekend for you. In Taos, New Mexico, the Wool Festival at Taos takes over Kit Carson Park. The Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival unfolds at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds in Tunbridge. Folks in Montpelier Station, Virginia, can visit the Fall Fiber Festival of Virginia. Travel up the coast to St. Andrews-by-the-Sea in New Brunswick, Canada, for the KnitEast Atlantic Fibre Fest. And, if you happen to be in New York City, be sure to join the NYC Yarn Crawl. Those are just a few highlights of what's happening this weekend.
