maryland sheep and wool was great fun, although it does always give me a slight headache. so many people!
ate: cotton candy
watched: sheep to shawl – quick! there’s no wikipedia entry on this!
found: a fabulous artsy knitter
conversed: with an older farm woman who wanted sheep smaller than suffolk because she was sick of getting butted by 300 lb rams. who can blame her? she was considering jacobs.
met: hobbledehoy liz by the out houses where there was no line ;)
splurged on: a bit of yarn from green mountain spinnery and a needle gauge i’ve wanted for a while.
saw: the ravelry founders in the parking lot of my motel, along with this lady, and this one, and this one i believe… and a bunch more people i did not recognize, and what were they doing? i think maybe re-enacting michael jackson’s thriller. i kid you not. i was in a car nearby and felt a bit like the uncool kid and a bit like a stalker.
bought: corriedale from my corriedale lady. her corriedale is so soft and fluffy. it makes me happy.
considering: a road trip to rhinebeck with the same group – my friend rachel and her mom.
lusted after: a knitting bowl.
took pictures of: sheep, sheep, and only sheep.
spotted: amy from knitty and ysolda
said hi to: mia, paula, my friend maria from SOAR, and anne who met at tnna last year if you remember. and now i see her everywhere :) gotta love that. she’s quite lovely and a fabulous designer.
missed: seeing mel, rachel-marie, and tara who were all there. next time!
lugged around: a freaking heavy gallon of eucalan that i was so pleased to find.
knit on: baby surprise jacket number one – three more to go!
