See the happy?
On Sunday morning, I smooched the wee babe (I'm still floored by how much I can miss this kid even on a tiny half-day away like this - floored.), hopped into Ms McYarnpants car and took off. We stopped to pick up Ms. Monster Yarn, and JUST made it in time to meet Melanie for the main festivities, though we did miss lunch at the brewpub (so.sad.) Show of hands for who's surprised that the Dynamic Duo of late were.....um...late? Yeah, I didn't think so. This time it totally wasn't my fault, and there was a cat involved. Want to know more? Go bug Stitchy and make her tell you...it's FANTASTIC, and she has pictures.
No matter how many of these kinds of events I go to, I'm still always shocked by the sheer volume of people who show up and how, despite the fact that there was A FESTIVAL in our town this weekend, still the knitters turned up two+ hours away in such large numbers that you just about couldn't move in Webs....and that's saying something, given how big that store is. Not that I'm surprised that they'd show up, just....well....holy crap there are a lot of knitters. Where do you guys all go between Harlot events and wool festivals?
Despite my best intentions, the photo above is the only one I took all day. Too busy chatting and shopping (I wouldn't have admitted that part, but there's photographic proof), as usual. I always WANT to take advantage of the pretty yarn for some fun photo ops, but I'm never willing to stop running my mouth long enough to do it. Thank god for Caro.
