But in a good way.
I don’t know how else to describe this past weekend. All the love, the confessions of stalking, the laughter. Oh my, the laughter. The return trips – yes, you – you know who you are. You guys cracked me up all weekend. Thank you! It wouldn’t have been half as entertaining without you guys.
I could link all the people I talked to and all the people I saw but I would undoubtedly forget someone because my memory is that bad or I would give a wrong link and well, I really did see so many that the rest of this post would be all links. You know who you are and you are all fantastic.
Even though I worked the whole weekend it was still good. Although after seeing all the happy yarns and the people getting to spin, I felt a wthdrawal and when I got home I didn’t unpack the truck. I sat at my wheel for a few hours and spun up 8 ounces for my big project. I know I say this every year but I think I mean it this year, NEXT YEAR I’M GETTING A ROOM! I imagine it will be crazy but I really want to stay over. Besides, I can handle crazy.
So now your wondering if I had to stay in the booth the whole time or if I got to do any shopping…..
Of course I had to come home with stuff.
I got this bit of fluff from Friends Folly Farm.
Ok, so maybe it’s more than a bit. Maybe it’s more like 1.5 lbs for a sweater. It’s Wool, mohair and Alpaca. Your eyes didn’t glaze over with beauty. The picture is fuzzy. It showed the colors way better than the clear one.
This was the first thing I got, at about 4 on Friday afternoon (before the vendors opened). I knew if I didnt’ attack Indigo Moon as soon as I could, I wouldn’t have gotten this batt:
I still haven’t spun the one I got at Maryland, but I have done the first one I ever got from SPA#2 (this year was SPA#5). I think this one is moving up and I’m going to spin it after I get the project done that I’m working on.
The most fantastic maybe is this from
