TNNA in San Diego

Alex and I have been crazy busy these days. First, we launched our newest site, Knitch Magazine, and now we're getting ready to leave on Wednesday for the TNNA Conference.

If you haven't yet checked out Knitch, take a look. It's a fashion magazine for knitters -- and we've got lots of free patterns to check out. There are also interviews with industry dignitaries, Norah Gaughan and Cameron Taylor-Brown.

Our new Web Mistress, Jenny McCutcheon, worked her tail off to design and develop this site. It was great to see her first project go online and get such terrific response so quickly. We've already turned our attention to the Spring issue which ought to be really good. We'll be interviewing lots of people while we're at the TNNA Conference.

It's being held in San Diego so it'll be nice to escape the cold temperatures of Ohio. Alex and I plan to walk along the Embarcadero to get a little if walking the trade show floor won't be enough!

We're meeting with lots of our suppliers to check out their newest yarns -- Berroco, Westminster, KFI. And we'll also see the fashion show on Friday night and take a good look at all the wonderful displays of new yarns, patterns and accessories. It's a fun show, though exhausting.

I hope everyone's keeping warm. It's so terribly cold across North America right now. I'm thinking of knitting myself a cosy wrap to keep me warm on airplanes and at home and the office where we keep it a little cool in the interest of reducing our carbon footprint...and our energy bills!
