I've been lucky to spend the last couple days with Ysolda Teague, who stopped over at my house during her whirlwind US tour. Danielle picked her up in Cambridge and brought her up to our neck of the woods, Crystal helped me entertain her when we got back to my house, yesterday I brought her to her book signing gig at Yarn & Fiber in Derry, NH, and Kelly R. and Julia, and later the Newburyport knitting group, entertained her while I was at work in the afternoon. It takes a village to entertain a knitwear designer. Fortunately my knitting friends are very entertaining.
Today she'll be off to Portland, ME. In my typical fashion, I neglected to take any photos. But! Kelly came to Yarn & Fiber bearing a sample of my Gawain design that she had knit for the store using their Ivy Brambles yarn. Ysolda was kind enough to model it:
Ysolda is charming, talented, and I'm delighted to have met her! You should definitely go by her book.
