This weekend has been SUCH A BLAST!!! My parents came up Friday, and we all went out with Sam's parents for dinner.
Sam gave me my birthday present on the way there, a gift card to Michaels! He knows me so well ;)
After dinner, my parents and I went to Michaels because Sam also gave me a coupon which was only good through Saturday. I bought myself the One Skein Wonder book!
It has some beautiful lace shawl and scarf projects.
Saturday morning, I headed to meet up with my parents and we went to the Sedalia Fiber Festival!! I won't describe each and every picture, you can probably figure out mostly what's going on.
When we first arrived, we saw NAMASTE BAGS!!
Mom bought me a beautiful bag, which is very awesome and I will use it for my work laptop. She bought herself the pink one, and the blue one for me ;) (That's my mom holding them, isn't she pretty? Way too pretty to have a 30 year old daughter right?)
It was cloudy, I thought the mountains looked beautiful half-hidden by the clouds.
"HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM" I love Alpacas!
Woman plucks a bunny.
I was very good. I only bought 2 skeins of yarn.
Pretty silk yarn. I'm debating between a hat and a scarf... its 110 yards.Skein of pretty sock yarn!
My super awesome Knitting Group friends had a big surprise for me! When I first got there, Dianne sang Happy Birthday to me over the loudspeaker! Then, later on they called me over and wished me Happy Birthday again, and gave me a beautiful gift.
Knowing that I'd hoped to buy some Socks that Rock at the festival, but that no vendor was going to have some, they ordered me a skein!! They also had Nana Sadie Rose custom make me this beautiful WIP Bag.
AND to top all that off, Dana made cupcakes!!!
AND!!! Then they made me wear a tiara!!!
Then I made my sister wear it, but then she didn't take it off the rest of the afternoon :)
OH! And Dianne was wearing her socks that she knit with the yarn I dyed and gave her for Christmas :)
And then Claudette brought me a lovely washcloth! Which was very nice of her :)
I bought myself a really neat Mayan Spinner, which is kind of like a drop spindle, except instead of dropping it you hold it in your had and whirl it around like a noisemaker. This makes it much easier to use with cats around, or even in the car! I can't wait to try it.
Afterwards, Mom and I went to the Yellow Submarine for lunch while my Dad, sister, and grandmother went to the Monacan Pow-Wow.
Then after dinner, we had cake!!!
So whew, what a day! I'm still pooped.
And YAY! Took me so long to type this that the video I took of the Alpacas finished processing.
