A Knitting-Themed Weekend

The New York Minknit Knit/Craft Weekend

I have not been knitting very much at all, but I did see a bunch of knitting related stuff last weekend, so here is a post for you.

From left to right, top to bottom:

1. I go to Knit Away in Brooklyn to try and track down some Addi Lace needles. Success!

2. I attend the Renegade Craft Fair and huddle in the Traveling Rhinos booth while it rains.

3. The calm before the storm. Twee products and nerdy hipsters are everywhere!*

4. After a half-hour of hiding in the Traveling Rhinos booth, I decide to buy some yarn. I have more than enough yarn in my possesion, but sometimes, I feel a need to Buy! Buy! Buy!

5. It is pretty, no?

6. Traveling sock visits the Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting Show on the show’s last day.

7. Craft Kills. But actually this show kills, mainly because it sucks.**

8. One of the better pieces in the show–someone knitted shedded snake skin replicas.

9. Oh MoMA. I can see you lurking on the other side of the street, with your surely awesome Richard Serra show, whereas I decide to spend what remains of my disposable income by going to a crappy knitting show.

No links because I am tired. C’mon people–google.

(Maybe I’ll add links in the future when I am not so tired.)

* / ** The critic in me feels bad. I will expand “it sucks” in a later post. So that I am a thoughtful hater, not just a hater.

    Wow, I was totally sad that I didn’t get to go to that show. I can’t wait to hear why it sucked.
