Knitting pretty

Passionate knitters (it’s hard to be anything but if you’re a knitter) love Vogue Knitting (no relation to the fashion magazine) for its original patterns, articles on stores and suppliers, and tips. This weekend, the magazine produced an event called Vogueknitting Live! two days of fashion shows, classes and yarn shopping.

l to r: Customers Marlene and Rosalind with Linda, String's owner

My FOF friend, Linda, who owns String, an upscale shop off Madison Avenue in NYC, was one of the event sponsors.  The String fashion show featured glorious fur-trimmed, cashmere ponchos and shawls; capes and jackets; sweaters, skirts and Prada-inspired accessories, including headbands and fingerless gloves. Linda and her team, led by talented designer Lydia, worked for almost a year to design and create the items in the show. Linda gives her all to every single thing she does, and that’s a heap of talent, intelligence and hard work.

Congratulations to Linda, and congratulations to  Trisha, the brains behind Vogue Knitting, for a staging such successful event.
