Vogue Knitting Live 2018

Subway storm vogue knitting live new york 2018

Hi all,

I’m writing this post from New York! In my previous blog I wrote that I’m going to the USA for three months. Well, here I am! Thursday I arrived in New York and went to a party organized by LoveCrochet. Saturday I joined the Knitters Subway Storm and visited Vogue Knitting Live. Below you can find some pictures and videos of these days!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

LoveCrochet party

I was looking forward to this party a lot because many other American & Canadian crochet designers would be there too. The room was filled with delicious food and pretty yarn.

LoveCrochet carries a few well-known yarn brands such as Paintbox and Willow & Lark (launched 3 months ago). They let us choose some colors to take home and I got myself some pink and grey ones. Can’t wait to try them!

> Edit: here you can find the free crochet pattern I made with this yarn.

Subway Storm

Two days later, Saturday, I joined the Subway Storm organized by knitter Kristy Glass. The idea was to surprise unknowingly people. We almost filled a whole train cabin and people who were not part of our group, were totally confused what was going on.

One woman asked my fiancé, who was sitting close to a door, if he knew what was going on. So funny to see their confused faces! We had a lot of fun and afterwards we walked to Vogue Knitting Live together.

Vogue Knitting Live was amazing! It was incredibly big and the location was perfect – about 3 floors were used for the marketplace containing yarn shops, brands and designers. I walked around a bit, talked with some yarn brands that I had never met before and enjoyed the pretty knitting designs.

I watched two mode shows organized by Vogue where the most beautiful, inspiring knitting designs were shown. One design was made by a fellow Dutch designer!

Let’s go again next year!?

Next year I would love to go again. I will be more prepared on what to expect and where to go to, this first time was so overwhelming! Hopefully I can convince some more Dutch crochet/knitting friends to join next year, the vibe and inspiration was amazing and New York is a great city to spend some time!

So if you haven’t planned your vacation yet, make sure to check out the dates and places of upcoming Vogue Knitting Live!
