Just what I needed October 23, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 9:50 am

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 Vicki 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.

Margene 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 Knitting_in_the_lobby_1have 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.  Rhinebeck_stuff_1 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.

    Wow you got a good shot of me smiling that never happens. I must have been having a good time;)

    I took that exact shot of Margene from another angle isn’t that funny?

    You’re very welcome and thank you too!

    A fair isle class with your mom, I’m in.

    It was so wonderful to run into you– over, and over, and over.

    Must get together again soon and I promise to bring Michelle.

    I totally agree… the best part was the car ride and especially my role as the offical doorlady at the hotel. You and your mom were a blast. Great finally meeting you.

    It was great to see you again…even though it was brief. Everyone with me also commented on both of your sweaters…they were stunning. If I lived closer, I would totally come for that class!

    Our time was WAAAAYYYYYYY to short, but I cherish the thoughts of us sitting on the couch in the lobby for a little one on one chat. It was wonderful to meet your mom and to see her beautiful knitting in person. I saw Leaf Lace, too and I think Ann or Vicki took a picture. It was so delightful to hold it in my hand and know that you knit it. Big hugs to you and we’ll plan more time together in 2008.

    It’s all about the journey, right?

  17. Cara Says:

    Always good to hang with you and to meet your mom! Although I’m still disagreeing about the jaywalker thing…. 😉

    Glad you liked the CDs.
