Whirlwind 24 Hours!

First of all, I want to report on the amazing Wynonna concert last night - our tickets were ALMOST on top of the stage (stadium seating) and since both SIL and I value our hearing, we moved quite a way back to get what was not so great viewing, but easier on the ears sound! She's just a terrific singer (and no, I'm not a C&W fan) but she's branching out, singing some old standards, and has the voice to belt them out. We had a wonderful time, including a nice deli-sandwich dinner beforehand.

Then today, the NoSo Knit-in I linked you to yesterday...oh MY! 100 knitters in one room with 3 vendors of wondrous yarny goodness...Here is one view of the room, showing Orchardside Yarn Shop up against one well as a bunch of us wild women!

Then a 180 degree pivot shows the other side of the room with Carodan Farms on the left wall and Bovidae Farm from Mars Hill, NC on the right wall (along with a bunch more of the maniacal knitters...)

This photo shows only a small part of the yarns accumulated for the Alderson Women's Prison knitting/crocheting program...I'm told that the PT Cruiser of the woman carrying all of this to WVA was completely stuffed to capacity! We "Done Good!" Additionally, participants donated many handknit scarves for the 3 area hosptals' breast cancer centers and other knitted items for our local battered women's shelter. didn't really think I was good the entire time, did you? Of course not! This is the booty shot...the yarn in the back (the light yellow acrylic) is for next year's handknit items - this yarn is donated by wonderful organizations. In front of the acrylic you'll find my three yarn purchases: On-Line Supersock in Sierra, Claudia Handpaint in Chocolate Cherry, and yes, that's three skeins of Koigu in a lovely dark teal greens and blues colorway (there may be another Traveling Vines scarf in my future). Stephanie says, "sock yarn doesn't count." Right?

In the foreground you'll see some of the "treats" we got in our "goodie bags" Isn't that Llama pen just the cutest? and then I picked up the ChiaoGoo 5-inch size 1 bamboo needles - I keep getting shorter and shorter lengths of dpns!

I think someone feels as if she's been abandoned...
You left me for that? The Meezer

Oh dear.. That's a baleful glare on The Meezer - she doesn't look at all happy.. Scratch her ears this evening and make a fuss over her - that or close your bedroom door tonight {G}

Your day of knitting must have been wonderful. I know how much fun 6 or 7 K4ers can have, but a whole roomful of knitters? WOW!! Your yarn finds are beautiful - and you found the Chocolate Cherry yarn you wanted.. Cool...

I hope you give the Meezer some nice treats for the anguish she suffered. LOL!

Myabe if you knit a few cat toys stuffed with cat nip maybe she would see the value in this yarn obsession.

I like cats you always know what is going on in thier little minds.

Love the stash.....

Glad you enjoyed the concert! I would have loved to see WJ belting out some of her original songs. I think someone needs a little kitty dum sum from Knitty. ;)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
