Yesterday was not a typical Monday... no. It was very very exciting. My pal Brooke and I got to visit KnitPicks and see it in person.
First, I made cookies.
I did not want to show up empty handed and I also wanted to make a good impression. Perhaps they'll remember us fondly? It was worth a shot.
Brooke assembled a basket to put the cookies in along with stationery and other fun gifts she put together. We figured there were a lot of people working there and they should all like us!
I didn't take enough pictures, but I found this wall fascinating. This is the design wall for the spring 08 yarns currently available with the colors and inspirations for everything on display.
I wanted to stare at this wall all day.
Actually it was a bit bigger than what you can see. I tried to focus in on one board a little closer. What you don't see is what they have in the works for this summer and fall. Top secret!
It's a good thing the yarn warehouse is in another state. There may have been an incident otherwise.
Everyone we met was very nice and it seems like a great place to work. (Hire me!)
Angela was our lovely tour guide for the morning and I tried to get a picture with the three of us but I think we took turns blinking/looking goofy. I had to show all three so you can see for yourself.
I should have made everyone pose together... with Xena, the small dog who also works/blogs there. She is ridiculously cute.
They certainly would have noticed if I dognapped her so I fought the urge.
I now have some projects in the works using some Gloss yarn, which I can't wait to show off.
Tease: One of them is Halloween related.
Overall it was really fun and I hope I get to go back sometime.
And then our adventure continued...
A giant salad bar was in order. We ate and knit and no one noticed or cared. It was great. I have a picture of Brooke eating but I am feeling kind and won't post it. Let's just say there wasn't a food stylist present.
No it was not a typical Monday. It was very exciting indeed.
