Hello from TNNA (the National Needlework Association) in Columbus, Ohio! Amy D and I have been having a wonderful time meeting and chatting with so many knitters we only knew by twitter handles or Ravelry names, and had the great good luck to be able to attend the Designer Dinner last night organized by Marly Bird; a masquerade!
TNNA is a wholesale event, so the marketplace is aimed at Local Yarn Stores who’ll be placing orders throughout the year. Last night was Sample It, a special time when yarn and needlework companies offer just a couple of things at wholesale prices and everyone rushes to try to get to their favorite stands before it all sells out.
So, fresh from TNNA to you, this week’s Balm to the Soul KAL prize is my Sample It score from Frabjous Fibers and Eucalan:
The second prize: an adorable felted notions bag with leaf zipper pull and two Eucalan washes.
Everyone who has finished a Balm to the Soul Shawlette by end-of-day this Friday will be eligible to win.
More from TNNA soon; in the meantime, stay cool and enjoy your knitting,
