a night in the studio

The Lion Brand Yarn Studio, that is.

Part of the fallout of flying home late from TNNA and then coming in on the wave of a giant snowstorm was that we had to miss our official Knitting It Old School night at Lion Brand Yarn Studio. Thank goodness the staff are accommodating and let us postpone until last week and tie it all in with our Vogue Knitting Live weekend in New York City.

I had never been to the studio before, but dudes, I have to tell you, it is a great looking shop. It feels warm and boutiquey without feeling pretentious like some high-end yarn shop. The folks who work there are all keen and friendly and helpful and they made us feel at home the instant we walked in the door.

We recorded interviews for both the YarnCraft podcast and video podcast (warning, we are dorky!) Then we presented a quick slide show with some of the inspirations for the patterns in the book, followed by a book signing. It was heaps of fun and went by so quickly that it felt like I turned around and suddenly it was over. I love when that happens, it eats the nervousness away quickly!
