Maryland Sheep and Wool

I've been a bit blah since the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. I was a bit disappointed, let down. It had nothing to do with the Festival, it was all the drama surrounding the trial and tribulations it took to drag the "boys" which consisted of a grown man of 37 and 16, 11 & 5 yo boys. No one understood that it was an "all about Mom" day. They couldn't fathom why I would be a tad bit disappointed arriving at 2:00 pm on the last day of the festival. Basically "the man" ate his way through the festival which was good as it kept conversation down to a minimum. The oldest boy wandered off with his girlfriend basically repeating over and over that this wasn't his kind of festival. The young'uns felt the need to announce loudly each time an animal relieved itself and kept asking where the rides were.

I left with one skein of sock yarn. One skein of sock yarn!!!!!!!!

REMINDER TO SELF: Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival 2007; Mom will rise in the wee hours on the 1st day to ensure arrival at the very very very absolute first moment on the first day of the festival. I will make plans to meet up the lovely knitters who attend and meet and greet and knit. I will arrive early enough to actually snag a Festival T-shirt from the current year (not years past) and actually purchase goodies that I want from the various vendors. Then if all goes as I planned, I will meet up at the designated spot for dinner (i.e. Mama E's get together), enjoy a wonderful meal, possibly a few drinks and delightful conversation with new knitting buddies. **One can dream**

I love sock yarn too.
But lately I've been more into Alpaca!

Thanks for your kind words about my FIL.
