Party at Verb!

Last night, despite the Friday night Bay Area traffic, Thayer and I headed to A Verb for Keeping Warm to hear Ysolda discuss her design process and what inspires her.



I'm looking forward to her new book (available for preorder can get it online or call the shop). Just hearing her talk about things to consider when knitting to fit your body gave me lots of helpful information and the sample patterns are gorgeous!


Thayer and I couldn't resist a picture! Ysolda was too fun!

Cookie A. was also there signing her gorgeous new book, Knit. Sock. Love. Her and Judy seem to be having fun discussing something fabulous!
We would have stayed longer, but we had to head home to get ready for today's festivities with Sarah, aka The Plucky Knitter. Too. much. fun. today. Pictures tomorrow...promise!
Happy Knitting!

WUH! You live the best life! There is so much knitting wonderfulness. I am a recent fan of Ysolda - I just started her Coraline sweater. What fun to meet her in person.

From the photos, it looked like a wonderful day.
