Well, Steven survived TNNA! Wow! TNNA stands for The National Needlework Association. This is where Steven buys yarn for the next season. You should see the things he brought back from the show! He has fantastic fleece from Ozark.
He also brought ArtYarns Shawl kits that are so divine I can't stand it!
He picked colorways - Champagne, Minerals, and Wildflowers. The kits make a shawl that uses a fine yarn intermixed with a sequin yarn. It reminds me of the Kaffe Fassett shawl from Rowan Magazine #49.
Speaking of fuss, you should have seen Joanna's face when she opened the box of Kauni yarn from Denmark! I thought she was going to swoon from excitement! It's a good thing Steven always has a fainting couch on hand for over excited knitters! No,....I am just kidding. He doesn't have a fainting couch on hand at all times. That's just silly...........it's in the parlor. Anyway, the Kauni yarn has a very long color stripe making it really great for Fair Isle knitting. Also, knitter beware, the skeins are sold by grams and you need to make sure of the yardage and grams on each particular skein to ensure you get what you need.
On the opposite end of the knitting spectrum.....
We received Tinseltown! This is the sparkly sister to Rizos, which as you know, is the ruffling yarn.
Steven brought Knit Collage with him, too! He even brought samples along with the yarn!
Also, the Yarn Garage will be CLOSED Monday, July 4th. Everyone enjoy the holiday weekend!
