Okay, next weekend is Maryland Sheep and Wool. And yes, I am going. It would be stupid not to since I said I had an important conference that weekend when some one wanted to schedule class that weekend. Fiber bets class any day.
And yes there will be a blogger meet up. Gryphon of the Sanguine Gryphon is planning it. I am trying to help as much as I can. The meet up will be both Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm on the grass or green next to the Central Pavilion where the music and stage will be. I am going to try and post a few signs up Saturday morning. I hope to see everyone there.
There is a button that has been made by Kitty Kitty for the meet up. Please feel free to post it on your blog but make sure that you save the button on your server.
Now in honor of my ever expanding sock stash, I am going to have a contest. The contest if for those who will not be able to be there. There are two people who are automatically disqualified and they know who they are since they will be with me. Yes, Priscilla, that does mean you. No unfair advantages.
The contest will be to guess how many skeins of sock yarn I end up buying. Notice that I say sock yarn not lace yarn. That is a whole different species of yarn. There will be at least two prizes. Who ever guess closest will win some sock yarn from my stash. I get to pick the yarn so that means no Sweet Georgia or STR. Sorry but that is sacred yarn. If there is more than two people guessing close, I can dig into the stash and come up with another skein or two. I will be buying some sock yarn for other people so they will not count towards what is going into my stash. The ladies of Knit Buddies will help to keep track of what is mine and what I am buying for others. And yarn that is given to me doesn’t count either. I have to put this in because I know that some one said she is bringing me yarn. The contest will close Sunday evening on May 6.
