Thanks for this peek into all the events that were part of the trunk show - appreciated by those of us not in NYC! Sounds like it was VERY cool.


It sounds like an awesome event. Certainly I wish I could have attended. Willena's sweater is fierce, I love it!


I'm loving the african dancer and Nefertiti! Grorgeous. Gosh, I wish I could have been there. What a nice circle of sisterhood in knit.
Knit on!


If your work in style at the Times ever palls on you, you definitely have a future in writing society/event pieces. I feel like I was there (and as usual with the stuff on your blog, wish I had been).

I am holding my heart! I wish I was there! The pieces that you showed are beautiful and Barbie is looking fierce! Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful!!


i definitely wish that I was there. if for no other reason than to be inspired by my sistahs.


I can't believe I missed this, and furthermore didn't even know about this. Ugh it's not like I was even far away or anything like that. BTW I found your blog from another blog. Ya'll look like ya'll had a GREAT time.
