Coherent words to follow when I am more coherent. Suffice it to say, a good time was had by all.
If we met this weekend, "hi!". If we missed each other, :( I saw many other lovely fiber folks but was too busy enjoying myself to take the proper pictures.
I'm off to do laundry and get myself organized, even though all I want to do is knit all the things (starting with some long arm warmers - it was cold!). Hope you had a lovely weekend, too :)
Thanks for stopping by, and happy knitting!
