It had to be Ewe!

Oh, what a great time Sheri put on at The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling!!!

The first person I met when I arrived? Who KNEW WHO I WAS AND RAN OVER TO ME FOR A HUG????? CLAUDIA THE WOLLMEISE!!! (OK – I met Michele on the plane first!) and then WendyKnits greeted me. And it was all over from there!

(OK – those are really from the end of the weekend, but I was so busy I didn’t take any when I got there!!)

I took a class from Wendy! An interview with her is coming to the podcast!

My roomie, Michele (ravelry) and Kristi (ravelry) enjoyed the class as much as I did!

I made a heel and toe in Cascade 220 that I had sitting around the house!

Later we went to dinner at Trainwreck.

Apparently we are not ladies – right Keri (ravelry)? And doesn’t Leslie (ravelry) look amused at all that (much more so than in the OTHER pic I have of her, let me tell you!) We were getting strange looks from the other diners since we were knitting at the table, but screw it, it was raining out and we were not walking back until we were ready!

I took Cookie’s class on Saturday.

Timmie (ravelry) liked it :)
Wow – Cookie’s brain is crazy and I LOVED every minute of it!!!!

Not to be outdone by a bunch of knitters, the Fabulous Faces State Finals were in town – complete with a door decorating competition.

Yeah – I was afeared for my life. There was a nasty incident involving a VERY LARGE BUTT getting out of the hot tub which I was pretty sure was going to take Keri out.

Everything was pretty low key for the weekend. I didn’t take a lot of pics, but we did manage to knit all over. Including Starbucks.

Keri and Kellie (ravelry) had a nice couch seat, while Laura (ravelry) and I were in the chairs. I was being nice to Leslie and didn’t get her in these pics. Oh – you can find Lala’s yarns online soon (hint hint). And Kellie made it from New Zealand!!!

Leaving was hard, but I had company on the ride back to the airport!

I can’t wait to do this again! I met so may cool people who I don’t have pics of including some Kansas City Knitters!!! WOOHOO!! Sara will even be in MD with me this weekend!!!

Coming on Friday – the Spring Fling goodie bag (I will give you a hint – there was yarn from Germany in it!)

Which picture of me is less flattering?

How cool to be recognized by Claudia and Wendy :) From what I’ve seen here and all over, a great time was had by everyone!

It looks like you had so much fun! I can’t wait to see you this weekend :)

Wendy April 30, 2008 at 6:35 am

As much as I love you, I am sorry, but I must kill you for posting that horrifically unflattering pic of me with my freaking mouth open and chins sagging. Gah!

I’m glad you had such a great time! Sounds like the classes were fantastic. And oh, the stories you must have about the beauty pagent kids.

Karen April 30, 2008 at 10:00 am
