TNNA Sneak Peek-


My hat is having a good time on vacation....I got an email this morning from Ron.

Betsy,

The show is going well... lots of people looking and ordering. Had Annie Modisette, Cat Bhordi and Clara Parkes in yesterday... they all admired your tam. It is quite the hit.

Hope things are well


Maybe next year, I can go too. I am a little embarrassed that my hat is on display to the US needlework heads of state fastened with SCOTCH TAPE.....I swear to God, the exhibitors aren't from East Cupcake but they might as well be. That's like going to the White House in flip-flops. Oh, wait, these guys aren't all that far from the Texas White House; maybe they know something I don't.
I am a little giddy because I have the only NON-BROWN buffalo wear in the booth. Yeah, I know it's burgundy, orange and green-not a far stretch at all, but I DID stretch. OK, nuking that 60.00 hank of yarn was a big stretch, because I didn't REALLY know what would happen, and it was scary.

Bets,

I'm excited for you! The TNNA is just down the road a bit from me, and I am so unhappy that I can't go see your hat in person (plus all the other wonderful stuff there!)

You are one of the most amazing knitters I "know", and I'm just waiting to be able to brag to folks 'I knew her when...'!

You guys!!!!! I am squirmy, because I can't make a mistake if I am putting myself out in public like this.

Heck, I hang out at Elann because it's packed with the most qualified knitters I know.

I think your day in the spotlight is super well deserved and when you win the contest I can say "I KNOW HER" even if only cyberly!!!

Joan said...

Marta said...

I can't stand it! I want a larger picture to see your hat!! AND, I must have that pattern! You know I am stewing on 4 skeins of buffalo. The suspense is killing me.

Trish-do you HAVE 4 skeins? WOW! Let me write Ron, ask him if the hat is coming back. What size is your yarn? I'll walk you thru it.
