*Star Struck*

Last night I met some friends down at the Tattered Cover to bask in the greatness of two knitting goddesses. Two names......Leigh Radford and Wendy Bernard. If hearing those words doesn't make your heart pitter patter shame on you.




Let's start with my girl Leigh Radford. I worship her. One of my favorite knitting books of all time is AlterKnits followed closely by One Skein. She recently came out with another book titled AlterKnits Felt. I love Leigh but sort of avoided the book because I thought felting was dead. Boy am I wrong. There are several items in the book that I am currently lusting after. That Blue Jay Blanket is numero uno on my list followed closely by some super fun Christmas Stockings and Ornaments.





LOVE HER!!!





Now we move on to the cute and sassy Ms.Wendy Bernard. If you have never checked out her blog go do that. It is called Knit and Tonic. Why do we love her? Because her patterns rock! Let me just say.....Top-Down. Is there any other way to knit a sweater? Well I guess there is but we love that TD method of knitting. Her book is titled, Custom Knits and I highly recommend it. She also has single patterns you can purchase on her website.




Wendy had on the coolest pair of boots that I must track down and purchase asap.





LOVE HER!




It was a great night!

Man Kel~you look fabulous~o, especially next to rockin' Wendy! Fishnets and black biker boots. My dad would not have let me play with her when I was small (I think we are the same age). Yeah, she's totally cool. And a knitter. Yep, the complete package in a knitty friend. Bet she's got some good stories!

Hi Kelly--i think we met long ago at a stitch and bitch in Highlands ranch that you set up. I don't know how I came upon your blog--but I wish I had long ago. I'm working on Ingenue from Wendy's book right now--If only I'd known she was coming....Lucky you!
