Back from the US – this was a great experience!
Highlight No 1 was MY design Twilight Swing on the catwalk in the Vogue Knitting Live Contest Finalist’s Fashion Show during the Gala Dinner. More than 200 designers had taken part in this contest, and I was one of the finalists!
This is my slide show about the finalists’ Fashion show, the photos you can find here:
To give you an impression of this gigantic event Vogue Knitting Live!, I’ve made up some slide shows – you can look at the photos one by one in my Picasa folders.
The Marketplace with an enormous offer of wonderful yarns and more

Parts of other Fashions Shows on the Marketplace’s stages
The Art Exhibitions on the 6th floor of the Marriott Marquis Hotel were very impressive – more photos you can find here.
I took a class with Cat Bordhi about advanced Moebius techniques. She is a wonderful woman and a great teacher! My Moebius is not finished yet, I’ll tell you more about it on my blog http://magischemaschen.blogspot.de in a few days.
Before I went to New York City, I spent three wonderful days with Brigitte Elliott in Florida. We did not only lots of planning about Swing-Knitting™ in the US, but I also got to know a lot of her most amiable knitting friends, and we had a lot of fun. And I succeeded to nearly finish my Hourglass Skirt along the way so that I could wear it during the Gala Diner of Vogue Knitting Live!
My package with Twilight Swing 1 arrived in New York on Jan 14th. Twilight Swing 2 I finished the night before my departure at 3:20 a.m. ….. The Twilight Twin is now at Zealana Europe (www.lanamania.com) and will be exhibited on H+H Cologne.
On my blog http://magischemaschen.blogspot.de you can read more details about my journey to the US.
Do you already guess? This was not my last trip to the US! Brigitte Elliott and me are planning some live classes for late summer/autumn this year – more about our plans will come soon here, on my blog and in my Ravelry group!
