My goodness, what a wonderful weekend. My mom and I picked up Nancy and Maribel in the Bronx on Saturday morning. We got a wee bit lost but those directions–can someone tell me what a "spriral" is? But it was all worth it to meet Nancy’s new cat Hero. Goregous!
The drive up was fun. We listened to Cara’s CD that I picked up at Ann’s house on Friday. I was getting a Vicki sneak preview. I have to say, some of the most fun I had this weekend was chatting in the car. Lots of laughter, with conversation topics spread from here to there! The festival was so crowded on Saturday and as it is a bit more condensed than Marlyand–it was overwhelming.
I can’t even begin to tell you how frequently I ran into Jody, Christy and the other Jody. It was practically comical. I am trying to convince them to come out for a Long Island get together. C’mon girls–what do you think? But I want Michelle to come too. My mom thoroughly enjoyed the company of my blog friends as well. After an interesting conversation with Cara regarding fair isle she even proposed a "class" at my house. Anyone interested? I wore my favorite AS sweater to the festival and was stopped time after time. As was my mom in her Cold Duck.
One of the highlights for me was, of course, meeting Margene. It was far too brief but wonderful just the same. Friends snapped a cute picture of my mom, Margene and I in our AS designs. I can’t wait to see it. Sure, I should have handed my camera over but I am not that smart.
Nancy and Maribel (and mom too) thanks for a wonderful weekend.
And now for the goods…a huge skein of laceweight from Mohair in Motion. They weren’t very informative and there wasn’t a tag. As told by the owners–it’s wool, fine and a lot of it. A sheepy sign. A punch needle crow kit. More laceweight from Skaska Designs. A bit of handspun, hand dyed angora to make some handwarmers for Gracie. And finally some Brooks Farm sock weight yarn.
