Can I get a Whoop Whoop!
Maryland Sheep and Wool
Lots of riding in the car
Anyone need that translated into coherent thoughts?
Yesterday, at 7:30am, Chris drove up in her beautiful new Edge. We loaded in my stuff and took off for Maryland.
7 minutes later we stopped at Starbucks. What’s an adventure if it doesn’t begin with caffeine? (Yeah, I take decaf. It’s the thought that counts.)
and me, sticking out of the sunroof
Don’t we look happy!?!
OK. This was my first year at MD S&W. It was crowded but not that bad. We were able to slip into most of the booths and lay our hands on fiber. Any fiber that didn’t get touched…well…I guess it just was missing out.
The layout of some of the booths was poor, only because the PAY lines seemed to block the LOOK AT OUR STUFF areas. And some of the vendors (or their employees) would stand in front of an area, looking like the Secret Service, not letting you by them.
Overall I had a wonderful time. The past couple of years have been downers in the Festival category. This time I was with a great friend. Never felt rushed. Didn’t feel like I missed anything.
"Now YOU do it." And so I did. Broke the fiber right off the bat. But she’s a great teacher and I was SPINNING! ME!
Darn her. She’s lit the flame. Gotta go slow. Must clear out stuff. Must. Restrain. Myself.
"Buy one." a little voice kept whispering. "Do it." "Do it."
I held out, tho. I’m going to try friends’ wheels (hint, hint) and see what’s what.

Alpaca having a chaw
Wife yelling at hubby
Animal moving just as the flash is going off.
Mountain Colors – Bearfoot – Wild Raspberry colorway. YUM.
And another yarn that I cannot post because it’s for my Coffee Swap buddy. 🙂
I drooled over Claudia’s Handpainted Laceweight and Brook’s Farms worsted. They just didn’t have the colors I wanted.
We left around 2:30, had some lunch, and made it home by 8PM. It took a while because we fell into some kind of GPS Time Space Continuum. Nothing major. More fun for the feeling of adventure. Made light because of the company.
any $$ not spent is going back into the "kitty" for Stitches!
Now, I ask you, how can that be wrong?
