TNNA Round-up

I lost this post twice (TWICE) before now. I gave it a rest for a day, but I'll try again. TNNA was too much fun not to write about it. I'll sum up.

Here are Cecily, Shannon, and Amy at the convention center (click that photo for notes on nifty things they're wearing). We had such a blast pounding the green-carpet-clad-concrete show floor. We fondled fiber, checked out new nifty products, and otherwise schmoozed with fabulous friends new and old.

Kristine, of Curious Creek Fibers, had us over to her beautiful home for hot soup, Caesar salad, and awesome company. She explained her technique of serendipitous dyeing:

Here we are, having a blast (with creepy red-eye correction):

We *heart* Fibre

Amy of gave us an impromptu silk hankie spinning lesson (SO cool):

The funny and friendly and fabulously hospitable Kristi (that Kristi) put Shannon and me up in her home, with her kids who kept us thoroughly entertained all weekend (there was only one almost-chicken fight. Really). Her oldest daughter even inspired me to make my second granny square ever. It's pink. It's going back to San Diego in the mail today. Here are Kristi and her youngest at the beach mere minutes' walk from their home:

San Diego

And proof that I was there, soaking up all the sun I could 'cause I won't see it again till April here in Vancouver:

Shannon & me at the beach

If you click that photo you'll see my intro scarf from Get Hooked around my waist. It was way warmer than I thought it would be!

I'm afraid if I keep writing this post will get lost again. So I'll stop there. Feel free to peruse Flickr photos for more.
