The Waterloo Knitter's fair was fun. I had the pleasure of meeting Kim, a.k.a. Curlie Girl and her mom, who are both very sweet, charming women. I talked their poors ears off, I was so excited and hyper, [I guess this explains where my daughter gets it from] to meet Kim. Kim bought some really nice yarn and she'll finally be making the project she has been pining after for some time.
I also caught a glimpse of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, a.k.a. Yarn Harlot and totally choked about approaching her. I'm such an "arse." I'm sure I'll have another opportunity at another time.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Carol, whom is a regular at a bulletin message board I assist and also a blogger. I was stunned she was able to find me, though very glad she did. It's always nice to put the person to the words that are written.
Now, when I say I'm a flake, I am being serious. I had my camera with me. I'm chatting away, with my camera on my shoulder and didn't think about it once. So, no pics of the fair. [insert mega eye-rolling here]
As you may have already gathered, I get confused and can't make up my mind. Being at the fair is an overload to my poor dysfunctional brain, but I did get one thing on my list and that was the Brigg's & Little Heritage in Blue Heather and Sheep's Grey. Ten hanks of each colour. You can't beat the price of $2.99 a hank. The blue will be used to make my husbands Inishmore.
I also bought a couple of shadow knitting patterns. One is the Shy Sheep vest and the other is the Phantom Fish Cardigan by designer Mabel Corlett. These should make interesting future projects.
I didn't buy anything else, other than a bottle of Eucalan. I really wanted to leave with a skein of Country Silk to make the Lotus Blossom shawl, but I just couldn't decide on a colour. I also wanted to see if I could find some Bamboo yarn to make the Silk Corset, but didn't find the brand I wanted. All in all, I had wonderful fun and that's what counts.
Now I'm off to actually knit. Wee one is going for a nap!
Keep On Knitting...
