What a nice surprise! This morning on Ravelry I noticed First Fall Knitty patterns. It's out! I'm loving these fingerless gloves, for one thing.
The TNNA, The National Needlewords Association, is the big show for us retailers where we buy a lot of our yarn. The June 23 one features the new Fall 2012 line of yarns and shortly before the show, we receive a lot of promo about what's going to be offered. That includes new patterns also to entice buyers to seek out the designers/yarn manufacturers at the show. Unfortunately, the Fall show is in Columbus, Ohio so it's cost prohibitive for us to attend. But we will be at the January Spring/Summer 2013 show in January. They have changed the venue from Phoenix (last year's) back to Long Beach and we're pleased they've done that! As are many others as I understand it.
We'll keep you posted as the new Fall yarns are introduced.
