with Fiber Beat WonderMike!

I’ve watched and followed along for years as some of my favourite yarn shops and designers all blog about going to TNNA. It’s only an industry conference, but because it’s knitting, it’s somehow way more fun. If it was a random widget makers conference, I’m sure it wouldn’t be exciting (unless you love making random widgets, I suppose) but a gathering of that many knitting masterminds is exciting. Stitchy McYarnpants and I flew in on Friday, January 7th (yes, I’m behind on blog posts) and kicked off our unofficial promotional tour of Knitting it Old School. We did a signing and gave away 50 books, we were interviewed for the Fiber Beat podcast, we did a Laura Nelkin pattern photoshoot, arranged a few book signings and fondled a tonne of yarn. (Hie thee over to Anzula and Alisha Goes Around to see some of our faves.)

Alisha Goes Around

The schedule was for us to fly back into Boston on Tuesday, but of course that was the night before SNOMG 2011. Our flight was cancelled and rebooked out of LA the next day so we found ourselves in Long Beach, stranded. Stitchy and I are not ones to get warped or stressed about plans changing, so we rented a car and headed for Anaheim. You know where we pointed the car, right? OHAI! Disneyland! What better way to spend a found day. I’m sure it was annoying on Twitter, but dudes, we had SO MUCH FUN. My stomach hurt the next day from laughing so much. McYarnpants and I, we have some good times.
