Ten years ago, almost to the day, you and I were headed to San Diego for our very first TNNA (The National NeedleArts Association’s Winter Trade Show), to show everybody our first knitting book.
Today, we’re headed there again.
We’ll have different badges this time.
If you had told our 2006 selves that we’d be back again in 2016, and that the book we’d be showing everybody would be a coloring book, I don’t know that we’d have believed it.
Actually, we probably would have believed it.
What are you packing to knit? (You’re not going to embroider the whole time, are you?)
I’ve got My Last Honey Cowl (For Now), but for more gripping entertainment on the long flight, I’m also casting on Ranger, a sexy granddad cardi by Jared Flood. It’s a dear (albeit nonknitting) friend’s Christmas present to her husband. (Hence the tiny sweater back in December, so there’d be something under the tree for him.) I lost my gauge swatch before I had a chance to count it, so I’m packing three different needle sizes. Wish me luck! It’s always a bit nerve wracking, knitting to specifications.
Hey readers–if you have any burning questions for representatives of the Yarn Industry, shout them out in the comments and we’ll try to get them answered.
Bon voyage, hon, and see you in California!
