Sheep and Wool brought much happiness, most of which is best expressed in pictures rather than words, so I’ll try not to be too rambly. I flew in on Friday and Sarah indulged my touristy need by taking me not only to the typical Washington D.C. locations, but also to Knit Happens! It was great fun. Then, Friday night we met up with Carrie, Anne Marie, Jenny, Natalie and, of course, Frecklegirl.
Saturday started entirely too early with breakfast. I enjoyed meeting some folks that I hadn’t expected, along with my much needed caffeine, eggs, and toast.
Then, it was off to the wool! While some of the girls headed for the yarn, Carrie and I went people hunting. The first person we saw was Fiber Fever Kate and then, lo and behold, we ran into a group of bloggers. Funny thing is, I was so overwhelmed, that I didn’t even realize who all we met until I looked at the pictures.
Then, I had my aforementioned embarrassing moments with Katy and Stephanie and that afternoon we shopped. I hadn’t bought any yarn that morning, so I had some serious catching up to do. More pics of that later. That afternoon, we headed home to rest and then back to the Georgia girls’ hotel room to head out for our evening festivities, but first a cup of coffee, man did we need the boost.
You’ve probably already heard plenty about Korean Karoke, so I’ll leave the evening at that for now, with my karoke pics to follow. The next morning (well, around noon, actually) we headed out in search of more wool. In addition to shopping, we looked at sheep…they were tired, too.
Then, we ran into Lara and Chelsea again. We enjoyed funnel cakes and Lara contemplated cleaning her corn dog stick for future use as a knitting needle.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end. But, before it did, Sarah, Lara and I took a roll down the hill, along with all the other five-year-olds.
Ah, I can tell you guys had a blast! Great memories for all of you. Looks like you all know how to have fun!
OMG, that rolling down the hill picture is so much beautiful. So much.
um, I’m sad now. Can you come to Athens to visit, please?
Fun fun fun! I particularly liked your egg rolls down the hill. See you again at MSW 2006? =)
If I had been in town, I would’ve been at that breakfast with you all! My whole knitting group was there! Looks like a lot of fun 🙂 Great to meet you, Sarah, and your Audrey was lovely!
Wow, I can’t remember the last time that I rolled down a hill (on purpose, that is). I had such a great time hanging out with you! And be warned. I have not deleted that weird picture of you at karaoke and I will use it against you if you don’t come visit us in Georgia.
YOU ARE SO MUCH FABULOUS!
Sounds like you had a terrific time. Rolling down the hill looks fun…but that stuff makes me so dizzy!
talk about being a bit “spend” hungover! I got way too much loot! [blush]
will we see you at rhinebeck?? (say yes say yes!)
