It was a lot of fun! Met lots of people, walked a ton, shopped...well see below and just enjoyed myself. Had great roommates too! I even saw 2 knitbloggers I've been reading for a while and could only manage a hi. Guess I got a case of the shy mouth syndrome. Plus I missed a few other peeps...maybe next year!
I didn't get many of the other sales area or the animals...yeah...new camera strap and all and it stayed in my bag...yeah, bad blogger! Howevah...
Friday Nite Knit in at the Holiday Inn was fun.
Organized by this lovely lady, there were prizes (no I didn't win) and lots of meeting and just chilling out.
The Friday nite knitting group as we normally meet, it was just another Friday to us.
(L to R) Lisa, Judy (her Mom, aka Momma to us) and Jacque.
Me...well despite the planning for lots of knitting and projects (yeah I always over pack them too) I had plans...or should I say she had plans for me.
I took a spinning class and learned a bit, spun a
Here we are Friday nite and what a difference a fiber makes. I didn't want to throw anything...well not as much as earlier that day. Let it be known that me and the orifice hook became well acquainted ;) (hey, git yer mind outta the gutter now!)
Can you barely see that tiny burgundy strand...coolness!! I learned so much from her, much more than my class. I should have paid her the fee. 2 hrs and a large class makes it hard to learn a lot. Thanks again Shannon... Sorry the rest of you lot, you'll have to wait to see the results...
The haul, not much sock yarn in there either (some are gifts) ! I was on a worsted quest and was very successful!
Sorry, no close ups or info you'll have to wait for a future YPF post. See I gotta keep ya coming back.
Soap, soap, soap, and some buttons. I love handmade soaps...and after spending 2 days looking for red buttons for a certain sweater...I found them at knit picky, where Shannon and I stopped on our way home.
Oh and some of the sights you see huh!
Cristi honey you sure aren't afraid to get yer hood on are you? ;)
If you've been reading this far, thanks!! I appreciate it. And for those inquiring, nosy minds that want to know...did I get a wheel..
NOPE! I resisted the urge...although I was thinking evil thoughts of how I could put rocks and stuff in Shannon's wheel bag so she "thought" she brought it home...wonder if she checked yet ;) I do love the Lendrum, but want to try a few more to make sure it's the "one" for me. But that is a long way away. I just don't have the time to give it the attention it needs right now..
