The weekend started on Friday with my first ever train ride. It was a great way to travel to NYC. The weather was perfect for a scenic trip.
We arrived at Penn Station with plenty of time to do a little shopping. My idea of shopping was Mood. I brought home a couple of swatches, but escaped without a purchase.
We arrived at the Marriott, I was the county kid in the big city :-) The big circle of elevators was a constant amazement to me all weekend.
It was very hard to get a good picture of them. They moved so fast!
Outside of the marketplace was an amazing display of the knitted and crochet Seven Wonders of the World.
The knitted and crocheted tepee.
My first glimpse of Stephen West. I saw him many times during the weekend.
Friday night we headed out toTimes Square.
Then Saturday morning was back to classes and more of the market.
and more knitted items. This time a refrigerator full of knitted food.
Sunday brought the designers panel discussion. Josh Bennett, Amy Herzog, Susan B. Anderson, Laura Nelkin and Stephen West.
Franklin Habits class proved that I could steek and put a zipper in any knitted item. He is a great teacher as were all of my teachers. I had a wonderful time and wished I had taken more good pictures to share with you.
