Sheep and Wool and Podcaster Meet Up

Photobucket

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!

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.

    Sheep and Wool was great, despite the heat. Thank you so much for convincing me to go with you. I am still floored that you and Matt took me everywhere you could. I can’t wait for next year when I’m mobile on my own two feet.
