TNNA day 1

Day one at TNNA Columbus is setup day! I helped Lorajean (Knitted Wit) set up her booth. Finishing touches tomorrow morning before the market opens, so I’ll show you that later. We took a break and tried on our unfinished sweaters. Mine is a Raspberry Vodka Lemonade, and hers is Goodale. Top down is working for us!


There’s a one hour sale called Sample It, where vendors sell/show off their wares for yarn shop owners. Brooke (Sincere Sheep) featured my Pointer Mitts & Hat pattern in a kit with her yarn. They sold out!



Note how Brooke is modeling the hat and ONE matching mitt…

I was at Lorajean’s booth talking up Thrumbelina slipper kits. We sold most of those, too.


I’m so pleased to be here, and tomorrow the real fun begins. Can’t wait to walk the floor and see what’s new with everyone!

Tonight, our second trip to Jeni’s Ice Cream. Our first foray last night was a combo of lemon and blueberry, and riesling pear sorbet. Tonight’s was pistachio and honey, and brown butter almond brittle. What should I have tomorrow? Check out the flavors!

  1. The fun you people are having makes me envious. Someday I might get to go.

  2. Sounds like a great time! I think you should try: salty caramel, wildberry lavender, and whiskey and pecans.

  3. Brown butter Almond Brittle for sure. And the lavendar, and the pecans, and – oh, I just gained you 10 pounds! 🙂 sounds like work, but fun too. Enjoy!

  4. Wow! Good job selling out the patterns! Yeah!

    Mmmmm…the pear riesling sounds really wonderful.
