We had a wonderful time hosting Franklin Habit at yarns etc... and Great Yarns!
Franklin is a great speaker, knitter and teacher and we are so happy to have had him visit us here in North Carolina.
His lecture was insightful, hilarious, and he thrilled us all with his knitting tales.
It was quite fun to have the shop full to the brim with so many wonderful people! After the talk he signed our copies of "It Itches." A Stash of Knitting Cartoons by the way, his handwriting is as beautiful as his lacework!!
The next day Franklin taught a special "How to Photograph Your Fiber" class at Great Yarns.
Wow! He gave us all some terrific tips for getting the best photos with your knitting and your camera. He talked about how getting to know just a few simple things about your camera can really make a difference!
I learned a lot and was so pleased to see the beautiful work that our customers had brought along with them to practice their picture taking skills! Check out that purple sweater in the foreground... I am partial to purple! There was also a lovely gentleman who knows who he is and was joining us for his birthday, I swear he had a magic bag full of gorgeous spinning and knitting, I know it was really filled hard work and dedication, but it looked like the best kind of magic to me! So many beautiful things, I can't wait to see some of the new photography skills in our group on Ravelry... post there please, I love it when you share pretty things with us!
Thank you all again, and
Thank You Franklin, you are a true gentleman and a generous delight!
So stay in touch with Franklin at his blog and tell him how much we love him and that he is welcome at yarns etc... and Great Yarns anytime!
