Banner Day!

<p>Two Very Exciting things happened at Chez ‘Lu this weekend (okay three, but the third didn’t actually happen HERE).</p><p>First, and foremost, meet Brigid:</p><p align="center"><a href="uploads/07-04-06032.jpg"><img width="131" height="175" src="uploads/07-04-06032.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></a></p><p>&#160;</p><p>Brigid is a romantic who likes long walks on the beach and her bobbins full of cashmere. I can’t afford the cashmere right now so she’s settled for BFL ;o)</p><p>I met her at the Hot &amp; Hazy II spinning event in Schaghticoke, NY on Saturday (no link, sorry) and it was <del>lust</del> love at first sight – but I had to tackle <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1668&amp;entry_id=229" title="http://cygknit.blogspot.com/" onmouseover="window.status=’http://cygknit.blogspot.com/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Cynthia</a> and keep her from stealing Brigid from me (okay that’s not 100% the truth, I didn’t have to <em>tackle</em> her. Just glare at her and remind her I had dibs *g*).</p><p>And that brings me to the Exciting Thing that happened that didn’t happen here – Cyn got to try spinning on a wheel for the first time! Wanna see?</p><p><a href="uploads/Photos/07-04-06009.jpg"><img width="131" height="175" src="uploads/Photos/07-04-06009.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></a> <a href="uploads/Photos/07-04-06010.jpg"><img width="131" height="175" src="uploads/Photos/07-04-06010.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></a></p><p> <a href="uploads/Photos/07-04-06007.jpg"><img width="175" height="131" src="uploads/Photos/07-04-06007.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></a></p><p>&#160;</p><p>&#160;</p><p>That is the biggest grin I’ve ever seen, ever. Ever, ever. She did a great job for a newbie and <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1672&amp;entry_id=229" title="http://www.the-wheel-thing.com/" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.the-wheel-thing.com/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Janet</a> showed much patience and was a wonderful teacher! (and, I’ve heard a rumor that her hubby just might buy her a wheel for her birthday – isn’t he awesome?!)</p><p>There were a bunch of vendors there, the three that pop into my head are <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1673&amp;entry_id=229" title="http://www.themerlintree.com/the_merlin_tree001.htm" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.themerlintree.com/the_merlin_tree001.htm’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Merlin Tree</a> (Dave left his house at FIVE AM to get there – now that’s dedication), <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1674&amp;entry_id=229" title="http://www.graftonfibers.com/" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.graftonfibers.com/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Grafton Fibers</a> and <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1672&amp;entry_id=229" title="http://www.the-wheel-thing.com/" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.the-wheel-thing.com/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">The Wheel Thing</a>. I might have bought some stuff other than the wheel…but you’re going to have to wait ’til I have better light…</p><p>The other Exciting Thing is this:</p><p><a href="uploads/Photos/07-04-06049.jpg"><img width="175" height="131" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="uploads/Photos/07-04-06049.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></p><p>&#160;</p><p>It’s looked like this for four years:</p><p><a href="uploads/Photos/Pumpkins005a.jpg"><img width="175" height="131" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="uploads/Photos/Pumpkins005a.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></p><p>&#160;</p><p>I HAVE MY PARKING SPOT BACK!!!!!!!
