It's that time of year again: Vogue Knitting Live is in New York City this weekend and I'm finally going. Since VKLive started in 2011, I've wanted to go so badly but it never seemed to coincide with time I could take off from work. Fortunately, I can go this year, and my sister and I are going to geek it up at the marketplace and hopefully get to check out the fashion show. Maybe next year we'll take a class but for this year, we just want to check it out and see what it's all about.
Of course, this means I have to plan what I'm going to wear to the show! I just cast off on my Owls sweater the other night and found some buttons for eyes.
As I knit my owl cables, I placed markers on two of the owls that I wanted to have eyes so it'd be easy to sew them in the correct place. I felt that having eyes on all of the owls would make it, well, a little too sweet and twee; I like the hint of owl that the cables evoke around the yoke of the sweater. And I'm putting eyes on two because, you know, I didn't want one of them to be lonely!
I'm bringing my camera to the show (not sure about my DSLR, maybe just my Point-and-Shoot) and taking lots of pics this weekend. Plus, we're hitting up the Garment District to stock up on some more fabric! It's going to be a fun-filled crafty weekend with the big sis.
