Photo Recap: Vogue Knitting Live, Chicago '13!

VKLChi13LearnVolunteers helped teach new knitters and crocheters at the Yarnspirations Lounge.

As always, Vogue Knitting Live was a blast! This year though, the Caron-turned-Bernat-turned Yarnspirations Lounge was a wee bit different, and not just because of the name change -- in addition to a learning section, we also brought some amazing, fashion forward garments (scroll down for patterns), offered a glimpse at the new, Yarnspirations website, and had a huge swatch, photo backdrop op. Here's a glimpse of the event inside Chicago's beautiful, Palmer House hotel!  

Me & NickyWell-renown designer, Nicky Epstein stopped by our booth!

We’d love to see your pictures in front of our Photo Op! Post photos on the Yarnspirations Facebook page, or message them to comments@vickiehowell.com Thanks!
