My first booth!

Hi all.  I know I've been absent awhile, but I have a good reason.  I have been working like crazy to prepare for my first trade show booth!  I launched my patterns at TNNA last weekend, and it went really well.  Here are a couple shots of the booth:

This was a trade only show, so I was selling to other yarn shops around the country.  I was in a "new vendor" section of the floor with neighbors like Shannon and the Stitch Cooperative.  (more great patterns!)  I also got to see the yarn harlot talk for the first time!  She was great!

To prepare, I reworked the format on all of my original patterns and had pictures taken by Maribeth.  They came out great!  I started shipping patterns last week, and am waiting for another batch from the print shop to get out the rest.  I'm putting together a website as well, and I'll let you know when it's finished.  Maybe I'll tell you about some of my recent knitting too!
