A Plucky Knitter Trunk Show!!

I still can't believe that just yesterday, Madeleine, Sarah, and I had the pleasure of hosting over 50 Bay Area knitters for a Plucky Trunk Show!

The morning flew by so quickly that there are gorgeous skeins of yarn that I am looking at now while posting these pictures that I can't believe didn't come home with me! Too much pretty!

Decision time. Which pretty? These pictures were taken about 30 minutes into the fun....to be honest, the table was surrounded prior to that and there was no way to take a photo!

These were some of my favorite photos...the ones where everyone was hugging their yarn babies and happy happy! Betsy and Sarah are pleased as punch here!

Lots of Plucky project sharing as well! So much fun to hang out a bit with Sarah and meeting new Plucky friends as well! Next time, more knitting and chatting definitely!

We had such a fun day. Thank you Madeleine and Sarah for so much fun!! Sarah is just as fun, sweet, and fabulous as you could imagine! And her yarns are even prettier in person! I did gather quite a pretty pile of yarn to take home with me...next post! Today, I'm knitting away on my new Plucky sock design!

Happy Plucky Knitting!!

I am literally drooling looking at the yarn. Sigh.

Well, that really looks like fun! Waiting (almost patiently) for Stitches so I can join in and pet yarn, and all of that, too.
