TNNA 2012!

I'm recuperated enough from my weekend at TNNA to share with you a bit about it!  This was my first TNNA with my VERY OWN BOOTH!  (I felt so grown-up!)  For those of you who don't know, TNNA is the yarn industry trade show.  The response to my jewelry kits and patterns was overwhelming to say the least, and I definitely have a summer of work ahead of me to fill the orders I wrote there.  Want to see my booth?
My Booth, Saturday am, before it all began!
A close up!
Of course I was WAY too busy to take pics once the show opened, but Caro got her paws on my camera and took a few of me in action!
Booth working-it!
Working with a customer, such fun : )!
Yarn Super Hero, you should know her!
YarnSuperHero, love this lady,  just look at that smile!  (she's responsible for getting me hooked on Jul findings!)
This is my nice way of saying, that though I had meant to take way more pictures I only got a few more... one day I'll become one of those people who can be busy and take pictures at the same time!  So, all of you who I spent such fabulous time with... I miss you already, can we do it again next weekend?

tnna yarn haul
Top Row: Anzula Cloud in Denim, Dream in Color Wisp in Crisp, Shalimar Yarns Homage
Middle Row: Isager Bomuld, Anzula Haiku in Bark, Blue Sky Alpaca's Metalico in platinum
Bottom Row: Sweet Georgia Yarns Silk Mist in Woodland, Anzula Haiku, and last but not least, 2 skeins of the MOST GORGEOUS Swan's Island Pure Blends Organic Merino Wool/Alpaca Fingering weight.
I've got plans for many of these yarns already... and I just can't wait to have time to play with them all! TNNA is definitely good for design stash enhancement.  I am especially excited about the Metalico. This skein got nicknamed "kitty" by Caitlin, as the weight of it in your hand, it's natural color, and silkiness makes it feel EXACTLY like a kitten!  If you see some in your LYS pick it up and start purring, you'll see what I mean right away.  (This skein is destined for an Adorn Anew design... you've been forewarned!)
