Planes, trains and automobiles...

This spring has turned out to be super busy. A good friend of mine, Hilary, invited me a few months ago to attend The National NeedleArts Association trade show in Indianapolis, Indiana. Say that 3 times fast! So last Friday I flew out and joined Hilary for the weekend. I met so many wonderful designers (fiber), and shared some great stories.

I never really tried designing my own stuff, nor do I really know where to start, but after this weekend I'm sure going to try. I'm up for the challenge. Oh and when I came home Rick had surprise waiting for me. Basically, he converted an old door way into a chalk board in my craft room. He has minor details to finish up, and I'll post a photo.

And this week I'm headed to Boston by train for the HOW design conference. I've only spend a day in Boston, so I'm looking forward to a whole week. I'm a history buff, so I'll be in the right place.

Knitting wise, I've got project lined up. I just finished these beautiful mittens by Pepperberry Knits. I'll post when they are finished blocking. I also have a few baby things started. Another baby boom is happening.

Anyway... Here are a few photos from TNNA.

Hilary, @yarniad, working her magic.
