Anyway, I have lots and lots of photos to share, so let's get to it!
Wish I Might shawl there on the dress form in the front -- I really think it was the star of the show!
French Press Knits - I feel like I've known this girl my whole life! (and, seriously, how cute is her new haircut?!)
Knitterella fame - another incredibly sweet person!), and Carrie accompanied me on my own inaugural visit for this trip.
Swan's Island booth had a Glacerie in some gorgeous fall colors.
And then on the last day, just like the last day of summer camp, we all rushed to take photos with our new friends (and unfortunately I wore my least cute outfit...). This year, I got to meet several ladies I feel like I've known forever, but had never actually met in real life...
Canary Knits is one of my oldest blog friends, if not the oldest. I've been reading her blog since at least 2007, she is one of my favorite designers, and we share a birthday. I was starting to feel like all would not be right in the universe until we met. And, true to her online persona, Teresa is extremely cool.
Alison Green tech edited my very first self-published design back in 2010, and has been my trusty tech editor ever since! Here she is holding the sample of (almost) every design of mine she's had a hand in getting ready for public consumption. It was so great meeting her in person!
Sweatshop of Love and the awesome Holla Knits) has been one of my favorite online baseball buddies, and is now also one of my favorite people to hang out with ever. Seriously, she is hilarious!
Knitscene (go check out her first issue - it's amazing!), was also there and is the reason I look so tired in all of these photos. (The night before, there were a bunch of us knitting in the hotel bar, and I could have sat there drinking beer and talking to Amy about knitting and Lord of the Rings forever!)
Leethal Knitting) and Alexa Ludeman of Tin Can Knits. These ladies rock, seriously. Moments before this photo was taken, Lee had inspired the new Hip Anarchist Haus Frau style movement.
Laurinda Reddig was on my flight from Columbus to Cleveland, and when both of our connecting flights home were delayed to an outrageous degree, we ended up having dinner together and talking all about our respective crafts. Laurinda is a crocheter who has invented a new way of doing reversible crochet intarsia -- isn't that awesome? Here she is with her jaw-dropping Rowan Tree Vest, which is made from Madelinetosh, fully reversible, and truly a work of art.
So. Yet again, TNNA was a fabulous experience that has my creative juices flowing and my hands itching to start some new knits! (I just have to finish working on this #$@! house first...)
