TNNA Winter Show 2014

Hello all! It’s Lauren again! Amy and Jackie are at Vogue Knitting Live this weekend, so I’ll be recapping TNNA for you. We had a great time in San Diego — especially Amy and Jackie, who were coming from eight-degree weather! Truth be told, we weren’t able to spend much time outside of the convention center, but just knowing there were palm trees outside made the polar vortex seem that much less scary.

We spent the weekend introducing CustomFit to yarn stores. We strongly believe that yarn stores are critical to the future of knitting. They’re the torch bearers of our community — the ones who teach knitters about craft.

Happily, local yarn shops share this vision.  We had a great response at TNNA, and we’re looking forward to letting you know which stores are offering CustomFit in your area. If your LYS wasn’t able to make it to TNNA but still wants to hear more, ask them to email us!

Oddly enough, I wasn't allowed to take all these sweaters home with me... shoot!

Oddly enough, I wasn’t allowed to take all these sweaters home with me… wonder why not…

After four days of nonstop “go! go! go!” it felt great to kick back in our hotel room with a margarita and some knitting, and dream up new ways we can improve and expand CustomFit. We’re very excited to meet more knitters and spread the good word at Stitches West, Vogue Knitting Live, and Stitches South before the next TNNA show in May!

It’s hard to believe we didn’t get a photo of all three of us from the weekend! It will have to wait until Stitches West. All the photos in this entry were taken by the multitalented Amy Herzog — if you want to see my iPhone versions of the same thing, follow us on Instagram! I can’t promise the same level of artistry, but I can apply a filter like nobody’s business.

Yep, that's me on the right ... waiting patiently for the doors to open and for people to arrive!

It’s so inspiring it is to be part of a movement that’s all about great sweaters. We’re just getting started now, and thanks for supporting supporting us on this adventure!
