TNNA – a few photos

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since we returned from the Needle Arts Trade Show in Columbus! Some of the  things we ordered while there have already started arriving and I still haven’t posted a photo recap of the trip. As it turns out, we have only a motley collection of poor quality iPhone photos to show – pics taken whenever we happened to think of it. There’s so much we missed because we were too busy having a good time. Still, the few we managed to snap should give a sense of the event and the fun we had shopping for new products to stock at Espace Tricot.

Meeting Stephen West at the Westknits booth


Lisa and I at Cat Bordhi’s “Seven Super Skills” workshop


All four of us wearing our finished “Seven Super Skills Cowl” with Cat Bordhi (L-R: Mona, Lisa, Cat, Melissa, Samantha)


Mona and Samantha spotting Mona’s “Ombre Tank” knit up at the Jade Sapphire booth (in double-stranded cashmere no less!). Sam happened to wearing hers that day too.


Mona was happy about it!


A sea of KPPPM at the Koigu booth


Lisa trying her had at spinning on a Ladybug at the Schacht Spindle Company booth


Ogling the beautiful laceweight ombre colourways at the Freia booth (lots of this coming!)


Spotting my “Shadow & Light” design in the wild while waiting in line for Sample it! This yarn store owner knit it with Jade Sapphire 2-ply cashmere – ah, luxury!


Group photo at the Shibui Knits booth after placing our first order with them!


Lisa showing her love for the Seattle Cowl at the Alchemy booth.
She’s already finished knitting one of these up!


Resting (and planning) after a long day of shopping!


That’s it…until next year!

    O.M.G. Can’t believe you’re getting the freida ombre yarn in. Love the colors. hopefully you’ve ordered the dark blue from the top row or the orange and turquoise in the second to last row. Let me know when it comes in and please put those colors away if you get them.
