Yesterday, I was visiting as a knitter/designer. And it was wonderful, even without plans. Here are my personal highlights:
- Re-connecting with longtime friend Arnetta Until recently, it had been many years since we'd seen each other. It was absolutely great catching up with Arnetta on this trip.
- Meeting new people -- June, Millie, Claire (who organized the trip), and more; it was especially wonderful meeting Twitter friend Vicki Stiefel, co-author with Lisa Souza of 10 Secrets of the LaidBack Knitters. Yes, I bought a copy and got it autographed. And yes, this knitter in the fastlane likes to layback and chillax from time to time. I look forward to reading and savoring this book.
- Barn 27, the Llama & Alpaca Barn It was my favorite barn on my visit last time and my favorite barn yesterday!
Oh yeah, I bought some yarn. Not alpaca, merino. It's the deliciously rich, red, Royalty colorway of Sami Queen fingering weight yarn from Creatively Dyed Yarn. I'll be writing more about it once I've knitted some up.
