♥ tnna ♥

we had such a fun time at TNNA! here i am with alex tinsley sitting back in our cozy den!

we had fun playing dress up in each others knits…  i want alex to model all of my designs and kept forcing her to put things on and prance around!  she just makes stuff look good.

i had little coupons inside the magic owl so folks could try their luck.  FIVE people won motherloads!  we also put bindis on people whenever they would let us near their faces.
here i am with the amazing antonio of malabrigo, and the generous & lovely erika knight!
we made lots of good friends like sweet hilary from the yarniad, & darling lee of leethal!

aw how much do we LOVE jess & casey!? answer: LOTS!  didnt get a pic with jess tho 😦 and in the 2nd picture with zany and sweet french press knits and knitterella! we are getting kind of cuddly with the beekeeper’s quilt… but it didnt seem to mind too much.

i cant resist hugging a big ol’ bale of manos.  cant help it.  its like a giant heavy teddy bear.  so when i ask the magic yarn ball we made, “dear yarn ball, did i get to meet so many brilliant people, and touch every kind of yarn i wanted, and have lots of margaritas at lunch when i probably should have been at my booth, and make lots of new friends (so many of which i didnt get pics with!), and get so much inspiration, and to top it off meet a definite hero, the champion and possible inventress of the concept of magical knitting none other than the wild and wonderful and everything i thought she’d be cat bordhi!?”

i think we already know the answer to that, but you can tell us anyway just for fun 🙂

ps. dear katyjane! my sweet friend & assistant all weekend we got NO pictures of you! terrible! you were behind the camera all weekend… ill get you next time my lil cheeky 🙂
also special thanks to donna & crew at deep south fibers for giving us all a cozy home. and hugs to all the people we hung out with that for some reason didnt get pictures of!

pps. just popped over to twitter to see that jimmy beans wool is selling beekeeper’s quilt KITS! how super crazy fantastic is that! wish i couldve had one when i was making mine!

    You are too cute. Looks like you made the most of your time! Glad you had fun. I bought the bee keepers quilt pattern a couple of weeks ago, totally loving it! Im even dying my own yarn for it and have ordered some koigu, It is going to be a mish mash of yarn but it will be adorable! Thank you for such an amazing pattern that even i can do! 🙂

    Eeep! I didn’t say hello, because I’m s-h-y, but I have to say your booth was adorable and cozy and I wished I could have hung out and played dress-up, too, but little ol’ me was flying solo in my Spun Monkey world and couldn’t step away for very long!
    Oh, and best part about being a yarn dyer? Sock yarn scraps. Guess what my next project is?
