I know. I’ve been a terrible blogger this week. Please forgive me. Big Girl work has been hectic and crazed and chaotic and all of that good stuff rolled into one. I know its nothing to complain about, and I’m gainfully employed, but most days just means that there aren’t enough hours in the day to get half of what I want done there, only to go to Yoga (which I won’t give up!), meet my Adams Morgan girls for post yoga food, say hi to the tall guy in passing as I zip to the metro, knit a few rows in transit and get home and crash by 11pm.
Dear reader, this does not leave a whole lot of exciting things to tell you at the moment!
Here goes. I’ll try.
I don’t have good pictures for you, but I’m not working on Friday, so how about then?
Maryland Sheep and Wool. Holy cow. I walked into the festival and immediately stopped talking. I hadn’t been that overwhelmed since the first time I went to Disney World back in 1987. I’ll post my purchases, but didn’t do too much damage at all. Which is really quite impressive. I had never seen much roving in person (that’s unspun wool for the Muggles) and the amounts, kinds, colors and sheer variety was Off. The. Hook. Even the tall guy was impressed.
I didn’t have spinning in my mind at all when I walked in. But as the day went by I collected two drop spindles (one was free from Interweave) and a bunch of roving. I’ve started practicing a little, but its going to be a steep learning curve for sure. I’m so sad this is only once a year. I can’t wait to go back!
In other news, I’m bracing for the summer season. Two weddings, a trip to Detroit (eeeks!), two trips to NH for Sisters graduation and family visiting and a visit from Erica in August is making for tons to look forward to in the coming months. I’m not sure how I’ll fit it all in! More details coming soon!
