TNNA 2011

This years TNNA was fantastic. The show floor was full of so many beautiful new products it was hard to decide what to say "yes" to!

It is always a great time to reconnect with so many people like Beth & Michael at Lorna's Laces, Rhichard & Taiu at Koigu, Stacy Charles and the Fibre Company ladies, Kate Gagnon Osbourne & Courtney Kelley.

It was also exciting to meet designers. Hannah Fettig of Knitbot was at the Fibre Co booth and she is putting out a new book with Alana Dakos (and it looks amazing). Meylinda Bernardi, of French Press Knits was there with her adorable little girl. I was thirlled to meet Jill Zielinski of Knitterella whose gift tags we stock. It is so nice to meet the people behind the product and then to have great conversation makes supporting their business even better.

The unexpected meeting was Barbara Walker. She was sat in a little booth away from the mayhem promoting her new DVD and was there to talk to whomever came by. Well Margaux and I pulled up chairs and chatted her ear for just a few amazing minutes. She is sweet and everything I expected.

There will be more than a handful of new yarns coming into the shop, Honour from Lorna's Laces, Swans Island and a few surprises - you'll just have to wait and see!
