To Market To Market

Mary just returned from a trip to TNNA in San Diego, and she has a wonderful array of cute things she brought back!

 

This is a fantastic 100% cotton yarn, and I love the way it’s dyed:

And then there’s this wonderfully colorful bamboo/acrylic/nylon blend with a whopping 180 yards packed into each skein:

And, with this gnarly winter weather coming at us, what better accessory to knit up quickly than this fantastic bit of head gear?

This is knit up in Funky Chunky,a really snuggly bulky soft wool that knits up at 2 sts/inch.

 

This next yarn is a little bit of heaven spun into a cotton/nylon blend that you have got to feel!

This Dreambaby DK Paintpot yarn is wonderful–a blend of microfiber and nylon that would be fantastic for anyone expecting a baby!  The possibilities are endless with 174 magically packed into each skein:

This next yarn is really exciting:  Mykonos by Berroco–a linen/nylon/cotton blend with a depth of color and sheen that I really like:

Even better, there is a pattern book at the shop for inspiration on how to showcase this gorgeous yarn:

I really like the scarf on the cover, and I’m tempted to knit it up in that gorgeous purply merlot color!

 

You have to admire the way Mary goes after some of the best yarns that TNNA has to offer, and brings it home for us to play with!

What is also special about The National NeedleArts Association is that it’s a way for the crafting community to reconnect every year and assess where things stand with the fiber arts every year.  This year some surveys are going out among the crafting community to gauge the changes that have been occurring in this special, unique community and we will revisit some more of what went down at TNNA 2016 over the next blog post or so–stay tuned and STAY WARM!
