Yep, I got to go this year. It was a close call, what with finding a reliable(and willing sitter). I’m so glad I
begged was willing to offer a few dollars, for a little time away for me.
So, On with the show!
I got to hang out with some of my favorite knitty friends, and meet some I’d never met before.
Jas(Artstygal), Tania(mikomiao), Valerie(costumechick), Michelle(tinymich), and a slice of Amy(Weaselrina); Val was working on a Kiri, in the exact same shade of the exact same yarn I am. I joked that I should have brought mine to switch it because she’s further along on it than I am.. hehehe
Tania again, and Maria(The Shizzknit), at the KOTC.
I had a ball meeting and knitting with these lovely ladies.. I don’t have pics of, but I also got to meet, AKKnitter, and her mom, Rosi G., Necia, and a host of others who are not Knittyboard members.. yet(oh, we’ll GET you Pam, just you wait. :))
I got to spin a little, knit on Sizzle–of which the back is done, and I’m past the hem on the front– and yack a lot! It was a big ole outdoors Stitch And Bitch-o-rama, and I can’t wait to do it again. And when it was all over.. I got to hit up Trader Joes! I’d been hearing about this place and didn’t know one was here til a week or so ago. Now, I’m not a wine enthusiast in the least, but I couldn’t resist the Two-Buck-Chuck, an affectionate name for the Charles Shaw wines TJ’s sells. I’ve yet to taste it, thanx to not owning a corkscrew(go ahead, laugh), but I’m sure Hubby and I can get in a late dinner tonight and just be ‘a couple’ for a little while, once the Beanlets are in bed.
Whoo.. what fun! Now, for RHINEBECK!
