Visit us at Vogue Knitting Live, NYC!

If you're in the NYC area this weekend, please stop by the Vogue Knitting Live marketplace at the Marriot Marquis Hotel. As usual, I'll be there -- teaching knitters how to crochet and vice versa -- at the Bernat Beginner's Lounge!

This time we're shaking it up a bit by offering different weights of yarn to learn with, including: Sheep(ish) by Vickie Howell, Bernat Softee Chunky, and Bernat Softee Baby! We'll also provide Boye Needles and The Crochet Dude Hooks to go along with the yarn of your choice.

Even if you're already an experienced stitcher, we'd love to share free patterns and other goodies with you. I'll be handing out loads of sample balls of Bernat yarns in this season's, on-trend colors. Also (while supplies last) a pattern and hook for quick-to-make slippers to keep you cozy after a long day, of yarn shopping.

When I'm not at the Beginner's Lounge, I'll be signing copies of my latest book, Step It Up Knits (Chronicle) at the Kollabora booth (# 318 & 320) on Saturday at 12pm, and Sunday at 1pm.

Print for $5 off admission!

Even if you can't make it to the show though, you can follow the happenings on Twitter. Look for hashtag #vklive.

I'll also be sharing a live stream of photos on Instagram, so be sure to follow me. Oh, and tag/tweet me @VickieHowell and @BernatYarns if we take a picture together.

Hope to see you -- either live or virtually -- there!



P.S. You can see my photos from past Vogue Knitting Live Shows here.


Have fun! Wish I could be there. :)
