Have you ever been to a yarntasting? Ever heard of one? Well, I went to one last night! A couple of ladies from my knitting group organized a sampling of yarn from Artfibers - basically you sign up, find a bunch of people to come, and they send you a ton of samples for swatching and fondling. Fun! And yes, there was a nice selection of vegan yarn, yay! There was also a shocking amount of vegan food including an awesome peanut butter pie and a yummy couscous dish. My favorite yarn that I played around with was Zoe, a shiny and pretty yarn that comes in some gorgeous colors, I might just have to order some of that...
Here's a pic of me knitting that one of the organizers posted:
I don't know if you can tell from how I'm holding the yarn in this picture, but apparently I knit very differently from most people, a couple of people say that they can really tell that I crocheted before I knit from the way I hold the needles. Anyway, more pics:
