Another friend that was showcased at the Fashion SHow was Kenny Chua , another talented guy , this is the pattern that was showcased and used at this fashion show. It is a simple yet versatile pattern. Here I am getting famous by proxy. Thanks to him and my friend John Silowsky, we were able to be at the fashion show. Even bigger fortune was to sit beside Karin Skacel and Antonio Gonzalez Arnao of Malabrigo Yarns and Michael Del Vecchio of Universal Yarn.
My friend Kyle was also present and he is another talented man, recently transplanted to the City by the Bay. You can find Kyle at his Website busy as a bee.
Last but not the least our friend Chuck Wilmesher who was working very hard at the Skacel booth. Chuck is working as the Director of New Products at Skacel and his boss Karin Skacel was very kind to us and allowed us to snatched him couple of times to spend some time with us. She is a very kind person and someone so full of ideas, no wonder Skacel Knitting is such a successful company. Karin and her staff are a very creative bunch of people who I am very honored to know and be friends with. Skacel is a great sponsor of the Men Knitting Retreats and very interested in promoting Crochet as well. There is a new line of yarn Simplicity from Skacel that I am hoping to make some designs for.HiKoo Simplicity Yarn is a wonderful, soft, washable yarn with an amazing twist and is available in some of today's most popular colorways.
