I was right there, but somehow, I feel as though the weekend was just a big blur. The fur-girls have a really brief glimpse of their gifties from the fiber festival on their blog, and I’m going to attempt to reconstruct a blog recap from Thursday night forward.
No, there’s no cute “back to school” outfit to share from Thursday night, even though I did learn that I’m hardly the only one who feels our first League meeting of the year is like the first day of school. It was just too darned HOT for anything special, even for the outfit I’d planned to wear. Nevertheless, after the meeting, Anita had arrived, so I met her and the Knight for a late dinner.
Friday, I had to work, so Anita and Ravelry friend Aimee met at Dog House Yarns and More. I eventually caught up with them there. I’ve resisted the Poems sock yarn since it arrived at the store, but Friday night, I threw up my hands and took some home.
Saturday, we ventured north to the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival. We saw Kathy and her family and friends as soon as we walked in, and eventually caught up with many more. Honestly, I wasn’t as impressed this year with the vendors. There wasn’t as much roving/fiber to be had, but I did snag some from Creatively Dyed, whom I’ll see again this weekend at Montpelier. Can’t wait! I’ll blog in great detail on Thursday about what I consider the find of the day, a wool coat for Gretchen Greer.
Kathy gave us a wonderfully thoughtful package. Of course, Sis is rather focused on HER part of the parcel… Again, I really do appreciate the effort my friends go to, finding treats my allergy queen can eat! There’s also a special fall Peanuts Scok It bag there, and some sweet little hanks of her yarn as well. (You can visit her Etsy shop HERE.) The Knight claimed the sugar cookies in the front, in case anyone was wondering. Thank you so VERY much, Kathy!
With my next post, we’ll look at more of my goodies from the weekend. I know my eyes glaze over after a while, and I don’t want to send you into a fiber coma!
How was your weekend?
