It's been nearly 2 weeks and I figured I should get off my "best intentions" and put a post up on this. On September 9th I traveled up to Kitchener, Ontario for the Waterloo County Knitter's Fair 2006, put on by the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter's Guild. It is the largest all knitting show in Canada, there were more than 50 different vendors there with everything you could possibly want for knitting.
Both Sally and Lucy are members of the KW Guild, so they were naturally a part of the day's event. Sally gave a presentation of "Sally's Top 10 Pet Peeve Questions." All about the questions that knitters are asked, the ones we wish people wouldn't ask, and how she handles them. It was entertaining, informative and she gave some personal insights on the knitting industry, where she thinks it's going and where she thinks some are dropping the ball for the future.
Lucy was there with her new DVD sets, which look outstanding. She was very approachable and really enjoyed talking with other knitters. I told her about the Men Who Knit website, which she thought was very exciting. She loves her male knitters and thinks that the best lace knitters she has ever met are men. That of course led me to brag about the outstanding knitters we have here. So if anyone's ears were ringing that day, I'm to blame for it.
