Gosh, I keep reading all over web-land about all these people who are going to TNNA this year. They're all touching down in San Diego and enjoying the great weather and getting excited about what they're going to see and who they're going to meet. And you know what? I can't go and I would really really like to.

Of course I can't go--it's an industry trade show! I'm not a yarn store owner or a designer or a fiber company.'s right outside my door! And it would be really cool to look at all the new stuff from all the companies! My grandparents used to own a pharmacy/gift shop and they would let me come to the trade shows with them when they did their buying every year. It was a lot of fun. Do you think that if I go stand outside the convention center with a sign that says, "Will Cook You Dinner If I Can Pose As Your Assistant" anyone will take me up on the offer?

That's kind of nutty, isn't it? Yeah, I thought so too.

You know what else is frustrating? Last year their show was up the coast in Long Beach. I lived right next door in Newport Beach. Good grief, it's like they're following me around the state laughing because I can't join the club!


In other news: there is no news! I've been working on those lace swatches so I haven't gotten anything finished lately. I just need to sew buttons on my CPH. Buttons! And finish knitting the damn hood on my Cassidy. I'm getting inch at a time.
