Even the Sherpa enjoyed himself…

…which, I suspect, is a result of not having to carry too much. Amazingly enough, I managed to behave myself at CT S&W on Saturday. Partly due to the fact that we got there too late for there to be any good fleeces left but…*ahem* who’s complaining? ;o)

Once we (finally) arrived, we ran into Cynthia and her husband-unit. I then gifted her with my most recent piece of ‘stealth knitting’ which she tried on immediately:


We then proceeded to make the rounds, talking to knitbloggers here and there – it was nice to introduce RR to people that he hears mentioned on just about a daily basis and show him that all those hours at the ‘puter are spent not only shopping but socializing, too ;o) (there were a couple of people who could not make it who were dearly missed…you know who you are (and who is to blame *cough*) I hope to see you guys soon!!)

One very important thing I found out, and I know you all will be relieved to know, Dave (of the Merlin Tree) is *not* keeping my wheel hostage and I should have her back in my hot little mitts my possession at Cummington. He also has the coolest spindles that spin like a dream – which were, unfortunately, not for sale at that time :o(

I did make a few purchases…but I will share those in another post. In the meantime, here are a couple of photos from the show:



We brought RR’s camera (since *gasp* I forgot mine) and while I was searching his memory card for the event photos I saw that the FD appears to have a new member, can anyone spot him?


I’ve been told his name is ‘Bob’ and they are special ordering a helmet to accommodate his…ears. ;o)

I am beyond exhaustion since I spent the day in forced labor burning and cleaning up the yard so if I have forgotten anyone in the linkfest please accept my sincerest apologies and feel free to yell at me in the comments…going to pass out now…

  1. Glad you and RR had a good time. I was bummed to have missed everyone. We got there early and had to leave around 11:00 because my daughter wasn’t feeling well. Hopefully I’ll see you at the next one!

  2. It was great to visit with you and to meet RR (even though I felt like I already knew him – LOL) Can’t wait to see what you bought! I felt like I didn’t buy enough – but we stopped at a yarn store on the way home and solved the problem. :)

  3. I’m glad you had a great day. Sharon and I have already informed Dale that he may NOT have Frank Harlow Day on the 4th Saturday in April next year.

  4. Ah, Fiber Fest season. I just love seeing what everyone gets at the fests and knowing my fest trek is next weekend!

    Can’t wait to see what you came away with!

  5. I’m working on a bit of that type of stealth knitting myself. What yarn and what pattern did you use? It is adorable.


  6. Poor wheel, I hope it comes back to you soon, and in better shape than ever!

    Was that sheep wool-blind?… I can’t see its eyes at all! Yikes. I hope it got sheared right after you took the picture.

  7. It was great to see you there!!!!!!! The extra “!”s are meant to indicate JUST how great! I’m still working on Neal about that bunny (already named “bun-bun”).

  8. It sounds like you had a wonderful time (like everyone who went had a wonderful time!).

    I’ll see you at Cummington. Will you be going to NH too?

  9. Aw what a cute little sweater. It was so very nice to finally meet you in person. And RR too!

    I look forward to seeing what you picked up.

  10. I do believe the sweater might be a tad tight ;)! Love the blue. Your little orangey, red lock is just cool! Is the bunny (it looks like a bunny) suit flame resistant?
