We found all kinds of friends, and more than a few interesting CRITTERS:
Here's the handsome Damien of Blue Heron Yarns and his partner Miguel (also handsome):
...Here is the glamorous (you owe me ten bucks, Leslye) Leslye Solomon of New York, who owns Woolstock -- a great yarn operation -- and who designs great sweaters (and teaches a fabulous Continental knitting class, not to mention creating a fab video on the subject):
Also get a look at this guy -- a yarn bowl -- we bought maybe a dozen in different styles, made by a nice couple from Russellville, Kentucky:
........but my all-time fave critter is this guy. You figure out how they did it. I gave up. For a close-up of his face, see the first Vogue Chicago entry.
