Knitting Ambassadors in KC

Lia, Jackie and I felt like celebrities as we rolled into the Sewing & Quilt Expo in Overland Park, KS and the man at the front desk asked us, "Are You Models?" Okay, so we had primped this morning, had our matching pin-up knitting girl t-shirts looking official loaded down with our knitting hardware -- so I guess we looked the part! Actually, we were the Knitting Ambassadors there to teach the basics of knitting and crochet. It ended up being quite a bit of work and required more patience than I had expected. Also, I found I prefer to teach children crochet over knitting. We got some nice gifts for our participation and headed back home very content with our fun-filled overnight stay and yarn shopping adventures in Kansas City.
