Over on the Vancouver 2010 Olympic group, we started planning a meetup for Vancouver area knitters , or people who are in town for the Olympics… and as the details fell into place, the numbers grew, and we ended up having a wonderful group! About 25 knitters came out to brunch on Saturday morning at The Whip restaurant in downtown Vancouver. We had a whole loft area to ourselves and we had a great time – knitting, chatting, feeling each others’ yarns, and eating some yummy breakfast food too!
It was a particular joy to meet some new and old friends alike, some of whom I have known on the internet since the early days of knitblogging – this was the case with Mandy “Yarnageddon” and Felicia “Sweet Georgia”!
After our meetup, there was a general invitation from Felicia to come to tour her studio, Sweet Georgia. What a treat! Her studio is beautiful and so is her yarn… I came away with some amazing goodies
After the studio, we walked around downtown and enjoyed the unseasonably warm and sunny weather. Winter Olympics has a whole new meaning with this weather!
