TNNA Treasures. part 1

Goody bag loot 1


TNNA (the national needlework association) this past weekend brought me home with so many goodies that I can not keep them all to myself. I just need to share. Marly Bird (designer, author, podcast host) always arranges for a dinner among the designers where we can all relax and chat. It is always the best way to start the conference. This year she got the sponsors to donate products for goody bags. There were so many generous companies that I have to give them a big thank you.

I thought , sure, I could tell you all about them; but how about giving them away so some of you can see first hand how cool these are! I will have 4 sets of goodies. I plan on giving one away each week, so check back to see what else you might be able to get your hands on.

First up:
Goodies #1: Sheep(ish) [which you can check out my post on here], 1 Boye wooden [very pretty] hook, and a Knit Kit [which you can check out my post here]

Everything in this first lot I use. Boye is my go to hook, if I can't find my Clover or Tulipe. Sheep(ish) I am designing a project in as we speak. And the Knit Kit lives in my purse. That puppy has everything in it (down to a crochet hook!)

For a chance to win, leave a comment here on the blog or a comment over at Ravelry by Sunday June 19th. I will pick a winner and announce on Monday.

what a gorgeous wooden hook! I didn't know they were making those - love how a wood hook kind of feels like an extension of your hand!

Ooh, I like everything you're giving away. I want to try Sheepish yarn, but we don't have a Jo-Ann's here. I bet that wood hook is heavenly to stitch with, too.

Fun, lots of great goodies!

I've long admired the little Knit Kit, but never got around to getting one of my own. It's such a great design.
