Was, of course, wonderful. There was a weather ‘issue’ and it was a little chilly but it was warm and not raining in the barns which was all I cared about. ;o)
I’m having trouble coming up with a cohesive post since there is so. much. so I’m going to completely steal from Carole and go with a random post. Ready?
I had a great time walking around with Risa, Carole, Sharon, Kathy, Manise, Kim and Hillary on both days. Saturday was ohmygawd crowded but Sunday was pretty awesome.
Seeing lots of my friends on both days – unfortunately only for quick moments. (and some I did not see at all…some I heard rumors of their attendance and some I did see but completely forgot to link to since I kinda suck at the remembering thing…sorry…)
Dinner at the Coyote Grill on Saturday night was totally worth arriving home at midnight in a semi-comatose state (only to get up at some ungodly hour on Sunday to do it all again). I had the *somewordIcan’tpronouncebutSharondidsothewaitressfiguredoutwhatIwanted* tuna. Yum. I looked forward to having that dish for a whole year (I had it last year).
The shopping. I didn’t do too much on Saturday:
…but I made up for it on Sunday:
ETA: I’ve been totally busted. The green and blue skein of yarn in the first picture? There are actually 20 skeins total. Enough for two sweaters. *ahem* and the Abby Batts were in the Carolina Homespun booth where Morgaine could keep a close eye on them. ;o)
My favorite purchase? The Abby batt (in the plastic baggie) and my new spindle. Olive wood. So pretty…
Jazzy’s favorite purchase?
The bacon flavored treats I bought because I had to leave them home and crated all day. :o(
The rain kinda sucked on Sunday and I thought it was fitting that this was what was playing when I got in the car to drive to the fairgrounds:
I met Guido of ‘It’s a Purl Man‘ fame on Sunday and did a little voice blurb thingy from the fest. (mine is the Oct 18 2:30 pm one)
by Sunday most of these:
had found new homes! ;o)
I think that covers it? Who knows, I probably missed like eleventeen really important things that happened – my brain was so fried from exhaustion that when I got home on Sunday? I slept for three. hours.
Okay…going to go pet my new spindle…
