An Ishbel for my grandmother, because I can’t be there to hug her myself.

Last weekend was the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival.
Last year, I said I wouldn’t go on Saturday again, but there was just too much awesome going on for me to miss it.
Many a podcaster gathered in the 90+*F heat to do a meet and greet. Jasmin and Gigi from Knitmore girls were there. I only managed to get a picture with them, and I’m about ….a foot taller than them in real life. I was bending down in the picture above. Guido from It’s a Purl Man was there, and so was Meghan from Stitch It Podcast and Jackie from KIPing It Real.
The swag was AWESOME. Pins, a ruler, samples, sniffies.
They did a drawing for prizes, and Matt won a lovely crochet hook roll, that I’m using for my DPNs, and I won a prize for a fibre club! He’s rather lucky; I’ll have to keep him around.
Everyone was really nice, and so gracious about being the the horrid heat. I’m so excited that I got to meet some of my favorite podcasters!
The goodies! Creatively Dyed Seawool, in I’m currently obsessed with this shade pink.
Socks That Rock Lightweight, in Cattywompus.
Socks That Rock Silkie, in Valkyrie
A Golding Tsunami, in Purple Heart Wood.
I’m so glad I went this year, and was able to take my friend Meg with us.
I can’t wait until next year.
