...as I approached Mecca this morning...
(...despite the congested parking lot...)
So, here goes....
Mary wants a little lamb...
...with fleece as white as snow....
(okay, I think this is a kid goat, but work with me...)
...because everywhere that Mary went, lambs were to and fro
(okay, I know they're adult sheep -- again, cut me some slack)[Thus ends the poetry.]
Boy, am I tired! I arrived at MS&W around 8:30 this morning, where lines had already formed for the 2007 MS&W merchandise:
...and at The Fold's booth:
...for Socks That Rock:
But there was still plenty of Fabulous Fair Food to be had:
And more importantly, there was a feast for the eyes, everywhere you looked:
I ran into several people I know, including queen Bess working hard in the Spirit Trail booth, Patsy & Nancy from my knitting group, as well as Robin H., and the trio of Jane, Donna and Patty. Back at the hotel tonight, I met Liz, (a Maryland knit-blogger who recognized me before I recognized her, shame on me!), along with two of her friends, one of whom was hefting a brand new beautiful spinning wheel. (Hi Liz! Nice to finally meet you!) Oh, and in one very crowded barn, I ran into Jean and Brittany from Knitting Addiction. Again, even though I've only been to that Outer Banks yarn shop a handful of times, they recognized me before I recognized them. (Sometimes I feel like I'm a complete dolt!)
Today I bought several pretties, and despite my aching feet, am going back tomorrow for more.
I can't wait!
