|Snow is less fun if you have to fly.|
While I didn't get to see much of Phoenix, I had a really fantastic time. Being able to meet many of the people I've been corresponding with via e-mail and twitter face-to-face was invaluable, not to mention fun! I'm not sure if I can summarize the last two days in a singular post, so much has happened. If I leave anyone or anything out, I apologize - hopefully I can post a part 2 (and perhaps even a part 3!) in the near future.
|Can I keep it??|
Speaking of not wanting to return a booth model, one of my clients lent me a gorgeous broomstick-style lace wrap on Saturday night. It was a gorgeous silver-and-black color and soooo soft (knit out of Lana Grossa Lace Lux - the first project shown in the youtube video when you follow the link). I had the hardest time letting go of it the next day! Even though I've sworn off laceweight, I might have to make an exception for this yarn.

Meeting up with the fabulous Marly Bird, host of the Yarn Thing podcast, prolific designer, and all-around awesome person was another highlight for this weekend. I'm really obsessed with more than a few of her designs, and her podcast is what convinced me to add The Knitter's Book of Socks to my knitting library.
The other benefit of attending this show was meeting many of my clients face-to-face for the first time - and seeing others who I've met in the past few months again. It was great to get feedback and brainstorm some truly exciting things for the months to come. Sorry for the teaser, but I'm just too excited not to mention that!
Stay tuned for more TNNA show updates - I'm working on my list of top picks, plus I've got photos of all my goodies to show off. You might also get to see some FO photos and WIPs sometime soon - you wouldn't know it to read this blog lately, but I've been knitting up a storm!
