Greetings from TNNA!

This weekend, Allison traveled to Columbus, Ohio to attend The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) Winter Trade Show. 


She saw all sorts of new and exciting yarns from all over the world, ordered plenty of goodies for the shop and made sure to spend a bit of time with her friends (including knitting glitterati Martin Storey!). 

At TNNA, the vendors always dress their booths to impress.  Above, you'll see a tepee that was featured at the Skacel booth.  Amazing!

Colinette displayed their Absolutely Fabulous Throw Kits in this dramatic display.  Allison couldn't help but order a few more for the shop! 


This display with also spotted in the Colinette booth.  It's a sentiment we can definitely get behind.  We love our super bulky yarns!  In fact, Allison picked out some more Loopy Mango yarns at the show.  Wait until you see the new colors!

This giant slipper quite literally stopped her in her tracks!  Be sure to look at the slippers on top for scale. 

Arne and Carlos were there, but only in spirit (and in cardboard).  Allison couldn't help but grab a pic with these knitting icons!

TNNA is a great opportunity for Allison to order yarns before they are even released.  She made sure to order Malabrigo's brand new 100% silk yarn, Mora, in every color.  We are *already* obsessed.  Mora should hopefully arrive by July or August.  Stay tuned!
