I scored a ton of stuff at TNNA last weekend! You know, besides the crazy inspiration and lasting friendships. I mean real stuff!
Friday night I went to the designer dinner hosted by designer and podcast host Marly Bird. It was a lot of fun, and a great way to start the weekend – eating, drinking, and chatting with designers and yarn store owners from all over the country. The dinner had tons of sponsors, like Lion Brand and Red Heart, who gave us a lot of yarn to play with, like the new Ann Geddes baby yarn, Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in colors with metallic thread throughout, and Red Heart Filigree, a woven ribbon yarn.
There was a ton of neon yarn everywhere, which was really exciting because I’ve got a lot of plans for neon yarn for fall! I snagged a couple skeins of Schachenmayr Boston in neon yellow and pink!
And I got a Chic a Ort Keeper! Bright yellow polka dots and blue floral print? It’s like they know me!
I got a really nice Eucalan Wrapture no rinse delicate wash sample pack, perfect for blocking all my finished sweaters! I’m excited to finish my next project so I can us it! The jasmine smell is really nice and not too intense.
I also found a tiny Namaste Jemma pouch for my notions! Though I immediately put my change in there and have been using it as a much needed change purse. It’s so tiny! I’ve had my eye on a Namaste bag for myself for a long time and this little guy is only making me more anxious for one! Also pictured there is a little sample of some pretty Red Barn Yarn Powner River.
So clearly I’m going to be busy for a while! I’m so excited to dig in. First thing is first – organizing everything in all my yarn bags into my new Chic-a knitting bag set!
And of course a huge thank you to all of the TNNA sponsors. I’ve been introduced to so many fun new products that I can’t wait to try out!
