Vancouver Olympics Knitter Meetup

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!

    I wasn’t able to go to the meet-up (I was up on Cypress!), but I did buy some Sweet Georgia at Three Bags Full!

    We had a wonderful time in Vancouver, hope you did too.
