Is three a trend?

What do these three things have in common?

1) A trip to Toronto.
2) A visit from Amy Singer.
3) A visit from Kim Werker from Interweave Crochet.

Yep, you guessed it. They all have something to do with Canada.

Between my little vacation in August and then visits from two yarn dignitaries in less than a week, there has been more than our share of Canadian love around here. Lucky us!

Kim stopped by on Monday during a whirlwind tour of taping Knitting Daily TV, a visit to Threadbear Fiber Arts in Lansing, MI and giving a talk at a big fancy pants magazine publishing show, Folio, here in Chicago. I can't tell you how excited we were that she was able to fit us in!

Here's a picture of Kim and Amanda on their way to lunch. You can see the 'el' in the background there.

Look what the mailman brought while they were at lunch. What a crazy coincidence!





The fall issue is really pretty. There's a sweater designed by Amy O'Neill Houck in Lorna's Laces Green Line's Dusk colorway.







This is one of those sweaters that your can dress up or down. It would look just as good with jeans as it would with a skirt for work or even a party.


Aren't the details great?

Thanks so much for inviting me over, Beth! I loved seeing your setup. I snapped a pic of you dyeing Amy's colour, too: http://flickr.com/photos/kpwerker/2880461225/
