TNNA: The Stuff

I've come to the conclusion that I can't fit all the goodies from my trip to TNNA in June into one post. Trying to do that results in me just not blogging about everything, and that's no fun, right?  So, I'll surprise you guys with some of the fun things I received.....bit by bit.

Let's jump right to the yarn, ok?


Two skeins of gorgeous Baah! Yarns La Jolla.  I knit my San Mateo out of La Jolla and just loved it, so am quite excited to put these two beauties together.


This gorgeous skein of Shalimar Yarns Breathless is calling to me to be cast on soon. I just love it!! It was so nice to meet Kristi, the dyer behind Shalimar Yarns, and Lara, one of my online blogging friends, who I finally was able to meet in person. Lara did a great job talking about Shalimar Yarns on her post here.


Anzula Cricket. One of my new favorite yarns. I couldn't resist a few baby girl colors since my sister is going to have a baby girl!! I knit Lilianna out of Anzula Cricket and it is the perfect one skein baby project, if I do say so myself (biased, biased, I know...but that yarn is heavenly!).


I'm about to cast on a solid color version of my Peekaboo Penelope baby sweater.  I just love this color, even though it isn't a traditional baby girl color. What do you think?


Not yarn, but one of my favorites that I saw at TNNA. New cards and gift tags from Knitterella. I bought them as soon as she made them available online. Love love love them!! Jill was kind enough to throw in an extra in my order, so one of our lucky KAL participants is going to win a great prize!!!  If you haven't heard, come join our IGK 3rd quarter KAL...this one is a hoot!!

In other exciting news, I'm hoping to get to knit nite tomorrow nite!! It's the small things, right?!?

Happy Knitting!

I think I'm in love with your stash enhancements :)

I, too, hope to get to knit night tomorrow but we'll see how things go. I'm not going to count on it, sadly.

Kristi, Andy and I were so glad to meet you in person. It was so much fun to talk to you and I hope we get to see each other again soon!

How exciting your sister is having a girl! I think the color you have picked out for Penelope is fantastic. It actually looks great with all the pastel pink that goes with baby girls.
