Nice thing was all I had to do was show up on Saturday morning and smile and chat all day long. The fine folks at Classic Elite had set up a small section of the booth for me to display my yarns and all the new designs. Unfortunately, I kind of spaced out taking photos of all the new upcoming fall projects but I'll be sharing them soon here on the blog soon.
Here are some out-takes from the booth. Here is the Classic Elite great wall of yarn with a photo which you will be seeing this winter. It was taken at the farm this past winter for the photo shoot for Color By Kristin
Here are the 5 new shades in Color By Kristin distributed by Classic Elite Yarns. You can download a color card of it here on my website.
Another photo of a new design. This hat and mitten set was designed by Ann Kelly.
This is my favorite scarf from the new collection.
Here I am with my friend Susan B. Anderson. Sorry about the fuzzy picture. She was doing a booksigning for her new book Topsy Turvy Knit Toys. So fun to see all the projects from this fabulous new book. She is such a great designer. Too bad we didn't have time even for a cup of coffee.
At the Columbus Airport there was a great display of kids art. Loved it!
I flew in and out of Newark, NJ. Julia stayed with her grandma. A million thanks to my mom and sister Jenn for taking care of Julia so that I could go to the trade show. It's not easy to leave our farm and at this time of year with haying, farmers markets, growing lambs. It is impossible for The Farmer to be mom and dad at the same time. So thanks MOM! A MILLION! XO
On the way home, we had an extra passenger named Tess. She is a Boston Terrier and we delivered her to my sister Nancy's family in NH. They lost their young dog a few months ago and Tess needed a new home. She was a great passenger.
I'll leave you with a bowl of delicious color. Good day everyone!
