Scenes from TNNA Long Beach 2013

We're just getting home and unpacking from a great trip to TNNA, the yarn industry's wholesale trade show. It's fun to see all of our friends and meet new ones during the long weekend. I have lots of pictures and Ewe Ewe will be coming to lots of new stores across the country so stay tuned!

Life needs more flowers and beautiful things! My jean jacket definitely needed a little sprucing up and what better way than to add a cute crochet flower. The Pretty Corsage free crochet pattern works up fast and looks fabulous! One skein of Wooly Worsted makes about three flowers so make one for your mom and your best friend. They'll love it!
