On Wednesday, I was lucky enough to attend a special blogger event at Lion Brand Yarn, where we took a tour of the offices, design department, and studio, met the CEO, learned how to dye yarn blanks with sharpie markers, and then sat down for a delicious dinner at Mesa Grill. It was a wonderful afternoon packed with yarn-tastic crafty goodness!
