We had a great time at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival!
We got to meet the group from Hog Heaven Rescue Farm, a group dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitate and foster of abused, neglected and unwanted hoofed animals. They take these animals in and provide vet care, feed and farrier care, work on getting these animals healthy, physically, emotionally & socially and then adopt them out to loving forever homes. They were winding yarn for donations and were busy the entire weekend.
We gave away 600 hats patterns and 1200 skeins of yarn to participants of the Festival. Randy Grossman (former Steeler and wife of festival organizer Barb Grossman) signed autographs (on patterns or whatever else was handy) while modeling the hat (designed by Lorna Miser).
Cathy Davis (the local arep for the area) helped at the booth all weekend and enjoyed getting a chance to meet Randy.
CJ Ardash stopped by to show us her great green and white Fair Isle sweater knit from Cascade 220 using a Melissa Leapman (who was busy teaching all weekend) pattern. She made a matching sweater for her husband after their honeymoon.
