TNNA Long Beach Recap: Good things for knitters are on the way!

We just spent the weekend in sunny Long Beach, CA at the TNNA (The National Needlework Association) Trade Show.  What I love about the show is not only do we get to see lots of old friends and familiar faces - we get to see the latest yarns, patterns, knitting kits, and accessories.

So here is a quick recap of looks and products we discovered at the show. We are so excited to share them with you. All of these new products will be arriving soon!

T-Shirt Yarn! Nadine Curtis, owner of Be Sweet Products, is showing off bags made from their new T-Shirt yarn. This wonderful new recycled product is made from t-shirt mill trimmings and ends.  See more products from Be Sweet.
Cool gadget! We love Sig'nits charms for your knitting, and now they have created another amazing knitting tool - Mark'nits! At first look, it's a pin with adorable charms hanging on it. But after further review and a demonstration, we found that Mark'nits are a pin, stitch markers, and a stitch holder all in one! Stay tuned for the arrival of the fun new knitting must-have.  View all Sig'nits products.

Fun and fashion forward! We were so excited to find these fun crochet and bead necklace kits from Helen Hamann. They are arrving in blues, pinks, and naturals.

Go bright! Spring is all about vibrant colors and these wild hand dyed yarns from Manos del Uruguay in Maxima will get you noticed. I'm holding Speeding Ticket. Check out some of the other fun colors like Shocking and Highlighter. Some free one-ball knitting projects will be available for this yarn as well.

Lots of new arrivals coming in from Shibui Knits! I'm in the Shibui booth with Lindsay (of Shibui) and she's sporting a new shawl made out of Stacatto. Also stay tuned for their new silk yarn, Heichi. It comes in earthy spring colors and has lots of new patterns you'll love to knit. See all Shibui Yarns

Stay tuned for these and more fabulous new yarns arriving soon from ArtYarns, Knit Collage, Universal Yarns, Imperial Stock Ranch, Kanni, Be Sweet, Fiesta Yarns, Kollage, Knit One Crochet Too, Madelinetosh, and much more!
