I've come down from my yearly Yarnover hangover. smile...One long day surrounded by yarn fumes will give anyone a fibery high! I had the pleasure of sitting next to Annie Modesitt and her partner Kathleen Pascuzzi who were there selling their new hand dyed yarn, which was amazing. And I also discovered today while reading the Yarn Harlot's blog post that she took a picture during the day and you can see a bit of my booth as well as me talking to someone behind my rack of fiber and bags. smile...now I don't think anyone will recognize my stuff or me, but I got a silly thrill from it!
My weekend was not just filled with Yarnover, nope, we had my whole family staying at our house over the weekend. That meant we had 6 adults and 2 little girls under two tucked in with the four of us. It was a house filled to the brim with love. While it isn't something I would want to do on a regular basis, it was fabulous to have all of us under one roof. We had not all been together in several years. It was amazing.
Now I have some breathing room. I've pushed so hard for 4 months, getting ready for DFW Fiber Fest, Yarnover 3 weeks after that, one sale to my local yarn shop in between and having my family here that I'm beyond exhausted. I've spun over 60 skeins of yarn in those 4 months. That is a lot. I have time now before my next scheduled events in late summer/early fall. I finally have a chance to knit again. I have a chance to possibly teach a couple classes in knitting and I'm working up what I think will work. Stay tuned, it is a new adventure for me.
