Door to the sweet airbnb house I stayed at in Columbus for TNNA this past weekend. TNNA is the annual summer trade show for the yarn & knitting industry, this year in Ohio. Rest assured that the knitting world is alive and well...and wow there's some nice yarn coming to a LYS near you.
For example the gorgeous new Swans Island All American sportweight yarn. Maybe I am biased, I photographed the new pattern grouping that debuted for the yarn - I (jokingly) call it MY LINE. I love seeing images almost life size in the booth, from a freezing cold shoot up in Maine last January. Really excellent patterns and colors- so new they are not even on Ravelry yet. I'll add links as they appear because you will love them.
The wonderful Clara Parkes caught me looking happy with them.
Goofy smile but authentic.
More loveliness from Feederbrook Farm, in northern Maryland. They do gradients. striping skeins that look handspun--and have a yarn & fiber CSA. Nice folks. Can you tell she is a former science teacher? They offer some cool classes, too. So many good people in this industry.
I kind of like how it fit into our airbnb's living room seating though.
* out of nowhere this movie popped into my brain. I bet it would be a hoot to watch.
