What happened when we went to Knit Nation?

Here's a quick look at what happened last weekend when Susan and I travelled to the knitting extravaganza that was Knit Nation.

Imperial College was the setting for this fantastic show, organised by Cookie A and Alice Yu.

There were lots of designers there with stands: here's Susan with Ysolda Teague who had her sample knits photobooth with her (and her assistant Sarah who was lovely too).

There were plenty of yarn stands as well. Here's Skein Queen's fabulous stand, manned by the lovely Alabama Whirly.

Skein Queen's Tweety Birds.


Susan had a booksigning for Vintage Gifts to Knit on the Loop stand on Friday and Saturday.


Here she is, in action!

The lovely Meghan from Loop kindly modelled the Adorable Little Bedjacket with Hood.


It was a great time for meeting friends, old and new.

I went to the Ravelry talk in the evening in which Casey and Jess told the story of how the site started and grew to the behemoth that it is today! It was a great end to my Friday at Knit Nation and I have heard tell that the Ravelry party on the Saturday was even better!

What a really great event Knit Nation was. Did you go? Tell us about it in the comments!
