What to say?

Pumpkin Carving - culinary student style.
You know what’s funny about these big fiber festivals? The day after ends up feeling like the day after a big holiday. You’re exhausted and have lots of new toys to play with but you can’t help but want to cry since it’s all over (but the crying) and you can’t wait until it rolls around next year.

I had a great time this year – I spent most of the day on Saturday walking around with Kelly, Katy, Blog-Free Jean and Jean’s sister who’s name completely escapes me (sorry…). We all have a lot in common, including a wicked sense of humor, so there was much laughter – especially when Jean threatened to lick a skein of yarn that we both wanted but I Rhinebeck 2007
had claimed first (it was very pretty yarn, and very lickable, trust me). ;o) Kelly and I even managed to make Jean speechless when she witnessed our speed and agility when we cleared off a vendor’s shelf in one fell swoop. What can I say? We saw the roving, loved it and grabbed it in the space of less than one second – it was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. *grin*

The blogger meetup was the chaotic group that it usually is – I got to meet Sandy and Norma this year (Sandy FINALLY received the Brian Regan DVD that I promised her about 6 months ago so I can now rest easy) and yes, Norma’s ass does look *that* good in those jeans. *evil grin*

The Meetup
I was able to talk to Deb and her Mom for a few minutes – and see the Birthday Bag that is magically invisibleMr. Cygknit
to Deb (nice stuff, Deb’s Mom!) I was also able to catch up to the usual suspects (Carole, Kathy, Beth, etc.) for a few minutes – and have a quick ‘hi!’ with Di, Cynthia and Cyn’s hubby (pictured at right – how do you like his T-Shirt? hehe) and lots of other people who I just can’t remember in the haze that was the meetup. Feel free to shout out in the comments to remind me – and I’m sorry again for my horrible memory!

Oh but I did see Jess and deliver her socks – I hope they fit!!!

I went back Sunday and walked around a little bit with Carole and blogless Sharon – I was really tired from Saturday, though so I wasn’t much company. I did get to see a few things that I didn’t get to see on Saturday because of the insanity and I did *finally* get to look at the Brooks Farm booth and Maryse’s beautiful cards (I didn’t buy any, though so I’m a terrible blogfriend. I’m hoping she’ll forgive me someday).

I also did a bit of shopping:

Dah Loot

sssshhhh…don’t tell RR. ;o)
