TNNA bound!

I’ve made a last minute decision to go to the TNNA show in Columbus. TNNA is the National Needlearts Association, and this is the their big summer trade show. Why go? I have two designs featured in Sample It, the shopping feeding frenzy for LYS owners the evening before the show opens. Yay, me!

Knitted Wit (Lorajean Kelley) is featuring my Thrumbelina Thrummed Slipper pattern in a kit with her worsted yarn and roving. This would be a great project for a class. I know; I’ve taught it a few times!


And Sincere Sheep (Brooke Sinnes) is featuring my Pointer Mitts and Hats pattern with her DK weight Luminous yarn. (These pictures are not the kit yarns, which I haven’t seen yet…)

I said to LJ, “I want to go!” And she said, “Come along!” How could I not? I’m really lucky to be working with such wonderful talented independent dyers, and to have a chance to go to the summer show. I’ll show you all the fun as we go.

I made another last minute decision on Saturday. I bought an iPad! My very slow laptop is making me crazy, and I’ve been coveting DH’s iPad. I bought my iPad to have an easy way to have a portfolio of my work with me, and also to blog from. I bought a little Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard/cover for it, and it’s pretty comfortable to type on. Most of this post is being typed on it. The only issue I’m having with this post is that I haven’t figured out the best/easiest way to insert pictures yet.

In other news, my Raspberry Vodka Lemonade is moving right along. It will be take-along knitting; I don’t think it will be done by Thursday. Too many things to get done before I leave!

  5. That will be so fun! You’re going to have a blast!

  6. My iPad is my new best friend (Graig is jealous. And yet, I have to keep wrenching it out of his hands!). In fact, I’m responding to you with it now from Helsinki ! A little heavy in the shoulder bag, but fine in day pack (but does actually FIT in shoulder bag)
