Inside the show. It was held in a hotel on Times Square, which was... batshit and touristy, haha. I don't think you could get me to go to Times Square for very many other reasons ;-P
Ms. Plucky Knitter with her Varia and Pétoncle! It was so exciting to see them in a booth! (Totally in love with that cowl, too. Fits right into my current color phase, as you'll see below.)
The wily ladies behind Cooperative Press and Cephalopod Yarns took up a collection to bribe the Times Square Batman into visiting the show (more pics here, number 16!)
After one of the show days, I went out to dinner with the delightful Natalie/Leeleetea!
aaaand....here's the loot. Some is from the show, and some is from my subsequent trip to Purl Soho, which was just as cute as expected (but crazy busy.) I took no pictures of course :-P
On the far left we've got some Baggu project bags (I realized as I was packing for the trip that I was seriously in need of project bags- all mine are, um, full. Of half knitted things. Eerrrp) and a Purl Soho felt bundle. I have no idea what I'm going to do with those, but I liked the colors and got carried away.
-The dark orange yarn is Plucky Knitter Primo Aran in Sticky Toffee.
-The neon is Manos del Uruguay color M2060 (I normally never buy this stuff because it's so similar to Malabrigo which I have, y'know, a ton of, but this color is undeniably unique.)
-The greenish on top is a Plucky Knitter One Hit Wonder.
-The bright orange is Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Tomato.
-The fluffy gray on top is Purl Soho Super Soft Merino in Oyster Gray (lives up to its name, btw. The soft part. Not the oyster part.)
-The dark teal is Jill Draper Makes Stuff Hudson in North Atlantic
-Annnd finally, we've got some Shelter in Woodsmoke. I had to buy some Brooklyn Tweed yarn in New York, it just seemed appropriate. (Even though I was technically in Manhattan at the time.)
-Not shown: I grabbed another cross-stitch iPhone case. I wasn't very happy with how the first one got warped (because the thread I used was too thick.) So, try again!
Apparently I'm going through another color phase. You know, I really thought neon/neutrals thing would be on it's way out by now, but according to the spring collection in every store in New York that I went in, it's really not. So I guess it's okay that I'm suddenly kinda into it.
