About 64 door prizes were given out and I got one! It's been many years since I've gotten one.
Many people attend just for the market. This is about 1/3 of the market this year.
Steven B/Yarn Garage gave everyone cards which could be exchanged for the fancy yarn to knit a hat for charity. Lion Brand donated the Jiffy yarn, needles and a pattern for a hat everyone received when evaluations were turned in.
Most attendees take classes in the morning and afternoon. I took Lily Chin's morning class on Tips and Tricks. Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. I learned a lot and her presentation is so entertaining it is easy to remember.
And of course some time is spent knitting with friends. I didn't take my afternoon class so I could browse the market and visit. It makes me realize how many friends I have made through knitting!
Not only do the teachers teach at Yarnover, but many of them come early and stay later to teach at the LYS. On Sunday, Cat Bordhi taught at Amazing Threads. This was another amazing class-again I learned a lot even though I didn't finish the project. She taught her Personal Footprint Sock class.
And autographed her book and posed for pictures.
What could have been a better weekend?!?! And it extends over til tomorrow at the MN Knitters' Guild meeting. Probably more about that later.
