We were suppose to be on the road by 7:30am…of course in real-time that was actually 8:45am (after stopping for gas and Dunkin Donuts). Finally with the family feasting, me sipping hot chocolate and knitting, we were on our way…
A beautiful day awaited us.
Now my goal for the day was to snag me some Sanquine Gryphon. They were debuting a new yarn, Zaftig Bugga, a worsted weight version of their favorite Bugga. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I kissed my girl, got my ticket and took off running. The hope was to arrive early and beat the crowd…yeah right…
Destination reached!!!!! 10: 40am. Made my way through the throngs of happy knitters then proceeded to the end of the line. Where’s the end of line?
Oh there it is. About a 1/2 mile from the barn. Yes, people I waited on this line for 1 hr and 45 mins…..HOLY COW!!!
My mum and sister(white sweater and black boots on the left) held my place so I could get another shot of this mind-blowing line. There’s Chris and Kira off on the right visiting me.
Mum was kind enough to let me wander a bit and enjoy some of the other sites.
Here’s my girl and her “Titi” getting to know a new friend. Closer…
“Mummy, he kissed me” “Wanna kiss um”… Is that pure joy on her face or what?
I’ve never met a creature so friendly and full of curiosity. My sister kept saying, can I have a kiss and it would “kiss” her with a bump on the nose. We were all amazed.
And this picture almost didn’t happen. We were getting ready to leave and Kira who was truly an angel all day was starting to melt down a bit. hungry, sleepy, a bit cold…time to go. I had to go to the bathroom but decided to hold it. Chris said go, it’s a long ride… Again I said no but he said, just go already. My lesson for the day, listen to my husband. As I approached the loo, there she was. Even with lunch in hand she was gracious and posed. Thank you Stephanie aka The Yarn Harlot. Was I excited? UM, yeah!
Verdict…An awesome day!!!!! And a realization, no matter how far you stray knitters will always welcome you back.
Haul shots tomorrow….early bedtime for everyone.
