Photo Gallery from the 2007 Emmys SwagSuite

We attended the 2007 Emmys SwagSuite to give away knitting gift packs to celebrities. All of the celebrities we met were really great -- especially all the guys we asked to learn to knit for charity. We were knitting on a celebrity scarf to be auctioned off for charity and every guy we asked to try out knitting said, "Yes"! I'm not sure they were bitten by the knitting bug, but they sure were good sports!
 
We took both our organic dishcloth kits as well as our organic market bag kits to give away. Everyone was excited about the idea of not only using organic yarn, but knitting with a "go green" purpose in mind -- actually using the knitted items to reduce consumption of disposables. It sure was exciting!!
 
We hope you enjoy the photos! Click through every photo with the next button, or click on a thumbnail to go directly to a photo.
