Friday night at the TNNA Yarn show in Columbus features the fashion show sponsored by the yarn companies. This has proven to be a hilarious compilation of awful sweaters which would send us into uncontrollable giggles in the past, but this year we saw some beautiful garments. Except for these:
Then we met Courtney, who owns
Seed Stitch Fine Yarn and was sweet enough to let us take this photo of her necklace. She took half a skein of linen yarn and added large vintage buttons and a clasp at the back. A really wonderful idea, since who doesn’t own one skein of yarn they would love to just wear around their neck?
So then it was off to the show for some serious yarn shopping. We looked over everything for several hours, and then had a quick lunch at North Market with our old friend Antonio from Malabrigo. Hallie had Jeni’s Ice Cream
for lunch, and those of you who have been to Columbus know what a wonderful lunch that is. And I was thrilled when Cat Boordhi came up to me and complimented me on the Dreambird shawl I was wearing!
Then we went back to the showroom floor, where we bought:
So all of this gorgeous, sparkly, squishy, shiny, fluffy, magnificent yarn will be showing up at the shop in the next few months. Check Facebook for photos whenever something new comes in. It’s going to be a fabulous fall with these beauties in stock!
It was a bittersweet ride home, knowing that our 7 year tradition of going to Columbus was at an end, and not knowing whether we would make the trek to Indianapolis next year.But the super-moon lighted our way home through the hills of western MD and the drive was kind of magical.
