A Knitting Review of Skaneateles, NY

On April 6, the Yarn Harlot started her Knitting Rules Yarn Crawl/Book Tour in Skaneateles, NY. If you ever get the chance, go hear Steph speak; she is even funnier and more charming in person than in her books or on her blog. Not only did she bring the sock, but also the sweater she knitted for the Knitting Olympics. It's a really good thing that we're not the same size, otherwise I might have been tempted to grab it and run.

Even though Skaneateles is a bit over an hour's drive, we went, my Mom came with me and it was worth the drive. I, sadly, have no pictures of the event. To be fair, I didn't have a blog at the time.

What I can do, is take pictures of my souvenirs: Sugar-n-Cream cotton (what's left of it), some superwash wool yarn, Lorna's Laces, Babies to Toddlers and Toddlers to Tots, by Melissa. The cotton has become a couple of warshcloths from Mason-Dixon Knitting, the light blue wool is being knit up into a project from one of Melissa's books and Lorna's Laces will be socks.

There are actually two yarn shops in this pretty little town: Elegant Needles and the Yarn Bin. Both are worth visiting.

OK, so have I distracted you enough from no recent finished projects? Hope so.
