Today was the last day of the Vogue Knitting LIVE event in Bellevue and we went for the marketplace only. Some of the classes actually looked interesting, but just not a good time to give up a bunch of hours for knitting classes...we all know I give up hours for knitting and quilting just fine on my own without classes.
The marketplace did require an entry fee which I thought was a bit unfortunate since you should be there to buy. Maybe the vendors didn't have to pay for a booth? I don't know. There was so much inspiration and beautiful art!
Some of you might remember my beloved amigurumi hamster that my friend sent me in February. It still sits on my computer. These gnomes could have hitched a ride on my hamster.
Anna of Mochimochi Land is the artist behind all these gnome themed displays. She does a lot more than gnomes as you will see on her site, and check out her springtime contest! I know deep down my sister is already plotting.
Seriously some cute stuff.
The captions she writes for her displays are funny too.
Yes, that would be a gnome burial ground.
A lot of people like these bowls that you can let your yarn sting out...presumably under control.
This was another gorgeous display. Note all the knitted flowers on the ground. Beautiful.
I hope you had a great weekend.
