On Friday we departed around mid-day before the storm really kicked into gear. We check in to our hotel around mid-afternoon and tried to make a beeline for the vendor room but ended up taking the scenic route in which the infamous "blond moose" was spotted (Watch Debbi’s blog for that story). Once we arrived we checked out a few spinning wheels, admired all the goods and maybe even made a few purchases. When Debbi spotted the Flat Feet sock yarn we pawed through it and stood holding our selections until the vendors officially opened. We really did leave plenty for everyone else. Later in the evening we had an excellent dinner at a Thai restaurant just a few doors down from our hotel and then proceeded to play with my spinning wheel a bit.
Yesterday morning we packed our bags and headed out for a delicious breakfast at the Sunrise Cafe. We visited vendors again to fill in the corners and ran into lots of friends. There might have been a fair bit of roving purchased since everyone was feeling a bit more friendly with the spinning wheel. We grabbed lunch and then checked in to our fabulous townhouse at the Harraseeket Inn where we had two floors and all sorts of gorgeous space. We had a very relaxing afternoon in which Debbi spun some Shetland roving she’d bought earlier in the day. I later made a marled two-ply out of it. Lynne and I had arranged a barter, my soap for her doing a tarot reading for me. I’ve never done anything like that and it was a lot of fun. Over the coarse of the weekend I knit up another top-down Timothy cap, this time out of Touch Me with the proper increases.
