Teaching

TKGA 2016 Day 3 Recap

Hello from Charleston!

Today was day 3 here at the TKGA conference.  I didn’t have any classes to teach today – but I still happened to get up pretty early.  So I decided to do some sightseeing while I’m here.  I drove over to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens and toured the plantation house and spent a good amount of time walking in the gardens.  It was a lovely morning, although it was hot and humid!

I headed back to the conference center around lunchtime.  Then I went to shop some more at the show floor (made a couple more purchases-  the button vendor!!  Dear me I fell down hard in her booth – I’m going to need to lock up my wallet tomorrow!) and then hung out for a bit at the TKGA table.  I ran into a friend by chance, and we went and had dinner together – that was a lovely unexpected happening!
Tonight was the TKGA Yarn Tasting, and it was a wonderful evening event.  There were desserts on a buffet, and a cocktail bar – but the real ‘buffet’ was getting to sample tiny yarn balls of loads of different yarn brands!  (Arenda had wound ALL of the tiny balls by hand – all by herself!  There had to be over 1000 little balls!!)

There were lots of door prizes, and there was also a fashion show of items attendees had knitted with some of our sponsor’s yarns.  So many lovely knits on display!

It was a fantastic evening event – lots of fun!

Today was another full day for me! I’m having so much fun!
And I promise I will post pictures of my purchases tomorrow or Sunday after I get home. 🙂

I can’t believe tomorrow is our last day – the time here has just flown by!  I’ll post again tomorrow, so keep an eye here!

Happy Knitting!!
