Thanks to the Degenerates for a good time at Maryland yesterday! The weather was great and the sheepburgers where yummy. I missed all the meetups, but I got some good stuff.
So what did I come home with?
2 skeins STR mediumweight
4 skeins Sheldrige farms fingering yarn
2 skeins Autumnhouse farms Herwick Fine sock yarn
A fleece washing bag
2 sets CP dpns
2 border leicester fleeces, a white and a gray
a Chasing rainbows silk brick
a cool ceramic bowl spindle
A Lucy Neatby pattern
I washed one of the fleeces last night and it came out great! It's mostly drying, but I combed a sample to try. Dealing with raw wool isn't that hard after all.
Oh, yes, I indeed cut in line for the STR but I promise it was an accident. I came to the STR booth from inside the barn and didn't see the giant line going outside. The people I noted standing around where in checkout. I already had been shopping for a minute or two and had two skeins before somebody (and Christina) yelled. I just got out of the way of everyone fast and kept what I had (I would have bought more otherwise).
Sorry about that again! I've never seen a line at Maryland for getting IN a booth, it's always been a get-in-and-grab fest. Oh well.
