My first goal was to see my Sock Camp buddy, Cathy-Cate. I was pretty secure in thinking I'd find her waiting in line at the Fold for STR.. and my hunch proved correct. But this picture is from when we were standing in line for Artichokes French. In past years, I didn't know if they were worth the wait. FYI: they totally are.
Yep - with 6 weeks to go until my due date - the belly is getting pretty large! I never officially said 'good bye' to her -because I told her I would see her all day. And I did. We kept bumping into each other all day.
Next stop was to get my 'It Itches.' book and have Franklin sign it. I've loved Franklin ever since his blog post "Chains of Sleevery'. Anyway - a very sweet man, and I love the book!
As I was sitting and relaxing for a bit, a knit bud that I see all the time at Webs (do you have a blog? Tell me in the comments- I can't find it!) walked by - and I noticed not only were we both wearing our February Ladies Sweater - but had matching bags (and not seen in the picture, the exact same sneakers). Too funny!
I've made you wait this long, but here is the ENTIRE stash enhancement from the trip. Cathy-Cate gave me the awesome bamboo/merino (mostly for the name - Bamb-ino) and I couldn't resist the purple sock yarn:
There was one kit that I was tempted to buy at Sheldridge Farms - the Spindrift Capelet - but there was no freaking way my huge belly could have made it into their booth. I was also sad that Morehouse Merino wasn't there... so I guess I'm just going to have to order online from them. My life is pretty hard, I know.
As I was walking towards the car, I was only regretting not seeing Stephen, another bud from Sock Camp. And then - there he was! I was very happy to get a big hug from him. Of course, the baby was playing kick ball with my bladder, so I had much less time to chat than I would have liked... but that's the way it goes.
Hurrah for Sheep! Hurrah for Wool!
