The fledgling baby blankets I remember knitting with my grandmother are light years away from the crafty, fashionable hobby highlighted at Vogue Knitting Live, a three-day affair featuring the likes of Project Runway designer Suede and author Barbara Kingsolver, who’ll deliver a keynote speech, “From Pasture to Purl.” What else? Yoga classes for knitters by Tara Stiles, arm-knitting demos, an art gallery full of felted gnomes and knitted glass, a scavenger hunt and couture fashion shows showcasing possum yam.

New York Marriot Marquis, 535 Broadway, 866-700-2262, 9 a.m., $15 online, $20 at the door, go to vogueknittinglive.com for the full schedule
