Knit in the City

What a fun day yesterday!! My mom drove us to Pasadena for the Knit for the Cure event. We volunteered to help out at the Stitches from the Heart booth. It was near Old Pasadena which had some amazing antique architecture.

The city park where the festival happened also had a small amphitheatre where there was live music and a fashion show.

Best part, I got to meet some of my favorite blog authors and yarn people,

Sandra Carter, fiber artist, was there making a cool HUGE pink scarf for the competition. She is knitting with homemade PVP pipe knitting needles!

Here's my scarf being judged (I did not win, but the scarves will be sold for the Susan G. Komen Foundation) The winner (Jan from the Yarn Lady) made this gorgeous rose colored felted spiral scarf with felted flowers that were handbeaded. You can also see my mom's scarf in this picture. It's the white scarf with large pink flowers on it.

Hey Stephanie! So happy to find your blog. Wow...I'm excited that you met up with all those cool folks at the Knit for the Cure event! I pretty much sat my b-u-t-t down and knitted in the sun.

I loved meeting you. And your mom, too. It was a great day!
