One word.

Cashmere.

Cashmere

I've spend the past four days at TNNA, the knitting industry's trade show in Phoenix, Arizona.  It was amazing, inspiring, motivating, encouraging, exhausting... I could go on and on.

But I'm a bit exhausted from the fun and traveling.  I promise to tell you all about it, but for now, just one word.

Cashmere.

Wait.  Let's make that five words.

Ten dollars per skein cashmere.

This special end of show deal, courtesy of Lotus Yarns, happened right as I was leaving the convention, rushing to the airport.  Probably for the best or I would have just bought more :)  It was the perfect treat to end such a wonderful weekend!

I hope to be back tomorrow with lots more pictures and details, but if I don't, please send me good healing thoughts for my knee surgery on Wednesday.  I promise to be back soon either way!

Happy Knitting!

I think I'm a bit jealous of your $10/skein cashmere...okay, I'm totally jealous.

And how did I miss that you were having knee surgery this week? I know I've been reading...

Hrm. Random question, what does TNNA stand for anyway?

That yarn looks lovely! Good luck with your knee surgery. I had knee surgery in 2006 (I tore my ACL) which is when I learned to knit! Hopefully some good things will come out of your surgery, too.

Wishing you well and a speedy recovery from knee surgery. Maybe you could tuck some cashmere in your bag just so you could touch it while you recover.

Wowza!! Great score! Can't wait to here how it went! Hugs for tomorrow!

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow; hoping all goes well with your surgery!

I hope your surgery went well and that you have a quick recovery :) $10 cashmere is bound to make you feel a bit better :)

Are you going to wrap yourself up in it and spend the weekend 'in'? I would.

Lovely.
