Whirlwind 24 Hours!
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 wall...as 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.
Now...you 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). Ummm...like 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
