After our interview, we went and hung out in this great, open area. We sat with Chloe, who was sporting some awesome elbow-length fingerless gloves
That’s not even the best part. On top of having a great selection of yarns, including some locally dyed stuff, they sell tea. At a glance, the board with teas seems pretty standard, but when you look closer…
After lunch, we headed back to the convention center for some more social knitting, and while we were waiting for our interviewee (and the student market preview), we had the good fortune of hanging out with Lise (hostess of the Knitting Rose Podcast) and her charming husband – the Big Texan, designer Brenda Patipa, and knitting ergonomist Carson Demers.
We’ll talk more about the market in Friday’s update, but it was PACKED! After the market closed and folks were wandering towards opening ceremonies, we headed back to our hotel to stuff the goodie bags for Saturday’s meet and greet. We worked on them until 10:30, and when we finished, we had an epic Hawaiian Pizza from Rocco’s.
Tomorrow’s plan: interviews, market, and more local fare! Check back in for more updates on Saturday!
