TNNA: The Stuff

It has been a nice relaxing, holiday 3-day weekend so far.  One of my goals this weekend has been to clean and organize a bit.  It is amazing how much piles up when you are on the go all the time.  Time to actually put away all the stuff I brought home from TNNA a few weeks ago.  Especially since Stitches West is coming up this week.....


Speaking of Stitches West, I'm excited to see more of Zen Yarn Garden there.  Roxanne's colors are to die for!!

It is so fun to see all of the new yarns and books and stuff that are coming to yarn stores this spring! I was able to bring home a few fun things.  One of my favorites is my new Namaste purse!


I'm a sucker for a new bag!  Jimmy Beans has a whole bunch of Namaste bags to choose from too. You'll see I also scored some new books that I'll be reviewing here on the blog too! 

Baah! Yarn

These two lovelies are from Baah! A gorgeous infinity scarf in one of these colors will be on the needles soon!  My local yarn store, Nine Rubies, carries this lovely yarn and I'm so looking forward to finally getting to work with it.

Anzula Wash my lace

These are just a few of the pretties from Sabrina at Anzula.  OMG! I just love her yarns and can't wait to show you the new design I have featuring her Cloud yarn.  It should be released in the next week!  Then Dreamy or Wash My Lace will be on the needles for something new.

With summer coming, I wanted a few lighter weight yarns to design more infinity scarves.  I've found that they are perfect for my chilly air conditioned office in the summer.  These lovelies will also be on the needles soon...

Lang Yarns Moina

But before I cast on anything with all these new pretties, I have to finish up my new sock design in Bare Naked Wools Breakfast Blend.  Considering I haven't had a sock on the needles in awhile, this one is knitting up quickly.  I blame the lovely yarn :)

Barenaked Breakfast Blend

So what are you guys up to this weekend?  Anything on your needles you are trying to finish up?  I have two other new things on the needles that I'll show you tomorrow.

Happy Weekend!

Oh the packing...and more packing...and trips to Ikea for their Presidents' Day Sale items (why yes, we bought four bookshelves today and a blanket yesterday).

Sadly, because of the move, Stitches West won't be happening :( I think I have plenty of yarn, though...I might have to destash (*gasp*)!

Oh what beautiful yarns. Love the mug. I just finished a lovely sock yarn shawl designed by a little lady we both know ;)

I've been doing more sewing than knitting lately. Need to find balance. g
