Yarnosphere 2015!

Special Edition, In My Shopping CartJean ChungComment

I used to be jealous of the people who could go to the Rhinebeck every year. For me to make that trip would mean no TNNA, because it would cost almost $1000 to go there. Well, now Socal has its own fiber festival the same weekend! Yay!

Yarnosphere this year was held at EXPO Art Center in Long Beach, in the beautiful Bixby Knolls neighborhood. It was my first time being in that neighborhood although I have few friends who live in Long Beach. I never knew I would love it so much!

On Saturday (Oct 17) I was scheduled to teach 2 classes: Steeking class in the morning, and Continental Knitting in the afternoon. It was my first time (officially) teaching knitting techniques so if you are reading this and was in one of my classes, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH A GREAT TIME. I hope you had as much fun as I did.

Just because I was there to work, doesn't mean I didn't have for fun.


First stop: Jennifer's The Sheepwalk Fiber Studio had a booth and I got to display my newest design, Sweet Lil Tee

Forbidden Woolery, Pride. Left from Yarnover Truck and Right from Forbidden Woolery's booth.

Amazing knitting-themed jewelry from Two Sisters.

It was absolutely the most fun I had in months--the best part was that no one looked at me weird when I started knitting socks from my new Chica bag while wearing my baby in the baby carrier, trying to get him to nap. 

Now, off I go to churn out some new designs with these goodies! :D

Sharing knowledge of something you love to do is really an honor.

This coming October, I will be teaching 3 classes at Yarnosphere! It's taking place in beautiful Long Beach city, and I'm teaching both Saturday and Sunday.

The first class I'm teaching is "Learn to Knit Continental" which is on Saturday as well as Sunday so you can take it on whichever is more convenient for you! 

Saturday, October 17th, 1:30-2:20pm

Sunday, October 18th, 12:30-1:20pm

Then I'm teaching a steeking class, called "Steeking -- Eeeek!" haha I really love the catchy class title.

Saturday, October 17th, 9:10-10am

This will be my FIRST time teaching officially. Oh and there's homework for each class so stay tuned!
