Friday TNNA report: The fun begins

I went to the TNNA trade show with Lantern Moon, and it was busy, fun, mind-blowing…the list goes on. I went wearing four hats: LM blogger, PDXKnitterati blogger, designer, yarn shop teacher. I was inspired in all of these aspects of my fiber life! We went down to Long Beach on Thursday, and landed during a gorgeous sunset.

The Lantern Moonies (10 of us) all stayed in this house across the street from the beach. It was much more congenial than staying in a hotel. And you really get to know your fellow Moonies when they’re also your fellow roomies!

On Friday I helped set up the LM booth.

I visited my friend Lorajean and her baby O. Pico Accuardi Dyeworks was there, and they were also distributing her yarn line, Knitted Wit.


And at the end of the day, it was time to kick back with some knitting!

There were some knitting lessons for two new knitters…more on that later.

    • It’s all coming up…after I get through tomorrow night’s book group! I’m substitute hosting, and I haven’t read the book yet…or cleaned my house. Ouch. Working, too, at the day job…but I had a grand time over the weekend, and I’m so inspired!

  2. Awesome sunset. It sounds like you sure had a grand time. Look forward to seeing your newest stash…do show n tell! LOL
