• Modern Yarn – Montclair, NJ

    October 19th, 2006KimMonsters of Teen Craft Book Tour

    Let the great MOTC Book Tour Blogging Catch-Up begin! I’ve watched hours and hours of Buffy, caught up on sleep, and done my laundry. So, here goes:

    On Monday, October 9th we spent the afternoon in lovely Montclair, NJ at Modern Yarn, where lots of kids and moms showed up to play with yarn (room at the table quickly decreased after this photo was taken).

    Kristen, the store owner, was awesome.

    Hannah already knew how to crochet, but would sometimes end up with too few stitches. We worked on it, and I hope I was able to help. She started a scarf I’m sure will be awesome.

    Sophia picked up crochet like she’d known how to do it all along. We’re of a similar mind, too. Instead of frogging her very first chain – that was about 18″ long – to make a shorter one to start a scarf, she decided just to make a really wide scarf. Emma (on the left in the photo) is a whiz knitter.

    Chantal and Hannah loved the Monkey Bauble from the book. We had an awesome time!
