Mad about Madison

Hi. Kate here! A week ago, I was about to board a plane to Madison. Marnie was doing the same. We had been invited to be the keynote speakers at the Madison Knitters' Guild Knit-In. I had heard this was a great guild before going, but I couldn't believe how welcoming and lovely everyone was! What a super show. I just thought I'd pop onto the blog and show you a couple pictures we took.


Madison auditorium

I love how most of the audience was knitting. By the way, this is the end of the show, so all of the people fleeing the auditorium are rushing off to buy things at the market. They were not escaping our presentation in the middle!


Marnie and Kate

People are always surprised to hear that Marnie and I have only met in person twice. Here's proof of the second time!


Kate talking

I wore Midtown to talk. I love this skirt. I really love this skirt. And every time I wear it, knitters and non-knitters alike go nuts for it.


yarn buddy

I got to meat Jeanette and George of Sun Valley Fibers in person. Check out my Yarn Buddy! I also saw Chris of Briar Rose. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of her gorgeous booth, but I did get to pick yarn for the fall issue!


Jennie pendants

I picked up these cute little charms from Jennie the Potter. I also ate her baby for dessert because he was so darned sweet.


Marnie and cow

Marnie made friends with a cow. We were also lucky to hang out with Franklin. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of him with fiberglass animals.


Kate with badger

Badgers are bigger than I expected.


A big thank you to everyone from Madison, especially Kate (not me) and Connie. It was awesome to see old friends and meet new ones!
