I left for Knitty City about an hour before I wanted to arrive but got there in a record 30 minutes. Before the talk, we were commandeered for a special photo outside.
Big Break for Small Business OPEN competition over on Facebook - there is still time to vote! Go over there now.
After that, the garments from the Vogue issue began to appear. The cover outfit was designed by Nicki Epstein, and it was quite something to see them in person.

Before the trunk show, there was a slideshow showing all the patterns from the issue in detail, as well as a little bit of Vogue history which was really interesting. The trunk show was a lot of fun; I am going back to Knitty City tonight for the Malabrigo talk and tasting, so I plan get more photos of the garments on display.
