On Thursday, Anne and Rosi and I flew to Indianapolis for the National Needlearts Association’s annual trade show and marketplace. Our flights were delayed, but we passed the time knitting, of course. My hands have been busy with another Shibui sample for the shop, “Mix No. 26.” Meanwhile, Anne and Rosi have been stitching on sweaters, the Isager “No. 15” and a self-designed cabled pullover, respectively.
This morning we got up early for 8:00 am classes, which were followed quickly by a luncheon and lecture, another round of classes, a crazed kit and new-product sampling event called “Sample It,” and a fashion show.
It’s been a long day, full to the brim with ideas and activity. Tomorrow brings more classes, and the most highly-anticipated part of TNNA for us: visiting all of the vendors on the showroom floor, seeing new yarns, colors, and designs, and placing orders for the shop. From us here at market to you here on the blog: more soon!
