Sheep In the City and March Madness!

Well, we've recovered from the Sheep In The City fibery goodness fest the last weekend of February. Long, long weekend, but so many great people and soo much great fun!

Here's a shot of our booth space -- what do you think?? Pretty cool, huh?
The March Madness is under way. First we were vendors at the Madison Knitting Guild Meeting March 8. We were vendors with our great friends Heather and Melissa from The Sow's Ear in Verona, Wi. If you've never been there, you definitely need to check them out, it's a great shop!
Of course I forgot to bring my camera and take pictures, but fun was had by all Monday night.
My husband and daughter R1 were helpers and I sure needed their help!
Melissa Leapman was the speaker for the evening and she stopped by our booth for some fibery goodness. She spotted R1's legging she knit from our oatmeal Icelandic yarn -- she's tall, so it's long and not easy to miss. It's R1's first lace project -- right up Melissa's alley, of course -- and she gave R1 great praise and encouragement that last night she picked up legging 2 and started knitting it again (she was suffering from single leggingitis) . I've always liked Melissa's books, but I really like her as a person -- so encouraging and just a great personality!! I only wish I was able to take her class last weekend at Susan's, but I was busy dyeing. I guess you'll se the results of that on Saturday!
See you at the Knit In!!!
