Retail Therapy and Relaxation

Lots to do.  We went to the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter's Fair last Saturday.  It didn't disappoint any of us.  Even though the number of vendors was down, we found more than enough to keep our tactile senses active for 6 hours.  Our wallets were pulled out, and we found ourselves separated momentarily only to meet, share and say, "Did you see this---?"  over and over.  I especially enjoyed meeting up with a fellow blogger that I follow, and first contact went:  Hmm, this Cabin Fever vendor probably isn't the one, guess we'll look in the next hall... AHHH  It's Brenda! Brenda looks questionably at me for a nano-second, and then we are hugging!  See full report here.
Yarn Harlot (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee) topped off the day.  We planted ourselves front and center.  Very fun talk entitled, "Your Brain on Knitting".  She knows her audience!
Be-decked in our shawls, we were admired and patted, and asked for pattern and yarn information by many attendees, and there were hundreds.
Back home, the next day, we sat outside, and enjoyed our Theta brain-waves.

Boot camp continues. No rest for D until there's a tree with apples on it. No rest for P until those seams are sewn on baby hoodie.  (Close ups to follow.)


  1. Sounds awesome! Thanks for keeping us posted. Can't wait for the next post. We miss both of you!

  2. Julia, what great picutres. So glad that you all enjoyed the 'fair'. Maybe it will be an annual event?? :) I am taking my bag to knit group this afternoon to show it off and make them all jealous!


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
