kitty: delayed TNNA update

What can I say... TNNA was absolutely amazing!

I know there have been lots of post and sneak peaks of the wonders from the TNNA this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio.

What can I say there were so many knitting stars at the show, the people who have really shaped and brought popularity to the industry we all love. I had the honor to meet Stefanie Japel, from Glampyre. I must admit I had really hoped to get to meet her. I even mustered up the courage to go introduce myself to Cookie A. I have been a fan of hers since the Katrina Sweater days. There were so many others just walking around, signing new /old books and teaching classes.

It was definitely a whirlwind tour and I have lots of things on my list that I want to investigate further.

Neighborhood Fibers - There is a green that Stefanie Japel used in her new book that is to die for! Karida also dyes Roving which I never knew.
Lorna's Laces has a Green Line now
Be Sweet
Buffalo Gold
Himalayan Yarns - New Yak and Yak and bamboo
Zealana Yarns - just wish the merino wasn't from NZ:(
Hiya Hiya - 9inch Bamboo Circulars (swoon)

And I must not forget the special thank you to the girls at Neighborhood Fibers; Karida, Libby, and Danielle. Thanks for putting up with me. Karida really does have a wonderful line of yarns with amazingly rich colours. And it is always nice to support the independents. :)
