15 December 2006Last night I went to YARN Magazine's knit in at Mag Nation. It was great to meet Barbara, Rosemary and Sarah from YARN and to catch up with lots of knitters, some of whom I know from my SnB group.
The evening was filled with lots of chatting and knitting and I had a fabulous time. I also came home with goodies...
Two balls of Rare Fire from The Rare Yarns Company, an alpaca, mohair and merino blend (approx 14ply) that's soft and squishy and a set of 5.50mm Birch metal DPNs. These were a gift from Barbara (the editor of YARN) to say 'thanks' (for sitting and knitting in the window of Mag Nation on Sunday, to publicise the knit in).
When you purchased a copy of the new issue of YARN last night you received a 'goodie bag'. There were a couple of different goodie bags, and mine contained 2 sets of Clover bamboo DPNs (3.5mm & 4.00mm) and a ball of Ornaghi's Merino Kind #125 which is a super soft 8ply. Yum!
Thanks to YARN Magazine and Mag Nation for a wonderful evening. I hope it's the first of many.
