Yarnover 2016

I’ve been in Minneapolis for nine years and this year I finally made it to Yarnover, the MN Knitter’s Guild day-long event filled with classes and shopping.
I took a class in the morning from Patty Lyons on how to customize sweater patterns. What a great class! I now feel like I have the skills to change for gauge, fit and extras like neckline shape and sleeve length.

After lunch there was shopping in a marketplace with forty vendors of yarn, patterns, tool and supplies for knitters and spinners.

I could have done a lot of damage to my wallet and added to my stash, but I try to keep restrained.

I picked up a pattern for a colorblocked sweater that I really loved the sample of. Then I got a kit to make a shawl (looks like I need to learn slip stitch colorwork!). I also picked up a skein of handspun CVM/angora in a dusty pink which I have plans for as part of a sweater paired with a grey. I also picked up a Twins project bag as a gift and gave it to the recipient already.

If you live in the Twin Cities area and are into knitting and yarny goodness make sure to look out for Yarnover next April!
