Janice, Stacey, & I were fortunate to be able to attend the Maryland Sheep and Festival just outside of Columbia, Maryland last weekend. We had lots of fun, but were exhausted at the end of our day of seeing and feeling and smelling all the yarn. Unfortunately, it was a bit rainy - so my camera didn't come out of its pouch too often. I hope I'll have a chance to take more photos next time.
#1. On the way in, I literally ran into Cindy R. We're in the Cindy Knitter's group together on Ravelry, were swap partners & had exchanged phone numbers in hopes of meeting in person. As I was walking in, I looked to my right, and walking right next to me was a person with a very familiar haircut (memorized from stalking photos). It was Cindy R! I was so surprised, I accidentally set my camera on video - which explains what is posted below:
Embarrassing - but it was very nice to meet her in person!
#2. I saw this person, but did not meet him or Jess or Heather or any of the others...too many other Ravellers in the way - but I got a MSW 2009 button, featuring Bob!
#3. Then I saw this person - it's JUDY!
She was stalking these cute little things with her camera-
Those are the only on-site photos I took b/c of the rain., but here's the yarn parade with linkies. If you ever have a chance to go to Maryland Sheep and Wool, you really should!
