Noah's Ice Cream #scarfie

I was lucky enough to spend some time with the amazing people from Lion Brand while I was at the CHA and as soon as my 5 year old spotted this yarn they gave me he decided it was his!   Ice Cream yarn in the colorway Cotton Candy  !

Lion Brand fashion show and the #scarfie

I had the pleasure of meeting Vanna at the Lion Brand fashion show Sunday!! Here is the link to last year's show I was lucky enough to be sitting in the 2nd row and right by Vanna, in the photo above is the president of Lion Brand David Blumenthal. I know my photos are not ideal but they were the best I could get!  Here is a closer look at Vanna's shawl they are tiny granny squares using Vanna's glamor and bon bons.

I was at the Craft and Hobby Association show in Anaheim Ca! I will have many posts about the show but let's start with the Yarnspirations booth! Looking out through the wardrobe  you get a glimpse of Yarnia! The details just blew me away! Yarnspirations spent about 10 months putting this booth together! I loved seeing the different  yarn lines they have shine in thier unique applications. For example they used thier  metallic yarn  to make the chain maille and word has it that it's done in movies that way too! I wish a had a few more photos of the tent to show you! Each panel was a different stitch and I can't even imagine how many hours it took to create! This has to be my favorite of all them if I had to pick...I love how it goes from a fine knit to a jumbo one! This is a lovely example of the different yarns all working together to make a jaw stopping creation. Of all the things to be excited about these  sure ma
