The Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival was great! And I ended up not blowing my entire savings on yarn. Yay me!
And, drum roll, we met Jess, Casey and Mary-Heather! That was soooo exciting! When they arrived at the Rabbit venue on Saturday morning, they were greeted like rock stars. It was a mob. But really exciting!
And if you’re the woman I stalked at the book booth, sorry. 5 second rule. You put the knitting book down for MORE THAN 5 seconds, so I call it fair game. Now I have 2 nice new knitting books:
The knitters guide to sweater design / by Michelson and Davis
Sweater design in plain English / by Maggie Righetti
The ravelry party was a blast! I got my tote bag (yes, I can stop buying tote bags any time I want, and no, it’s not an addiction) and met some really nice Ravelers, one of which won a beautiful designer knitting bag/needle case. I think it was so sweet of Jess and Casey to arrange such a nice party! Thank you!!!!!!!
Sunday we went back to the festival and I finally bought some yarn. It came on a cone. Somehow I feel more like a real knitter if my yarn is on a cone. Anyway, it’s gorgeous cotton Dragon Tale Yarn. I have no idea what to knit with it, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
I’d love to go back next year, this time with a project in mind so I can get some great yarn!
