MDS&W Festival. It's time to edit my blog I read link.

Alright, Well where do I start. I think After this weekend I need to make A list of the blog I will no longer read and add a bunch to the links that I do read. I tell ya, people are weird, Some of which think they are so much higher than others that are very equal to everyone else. But it seems like I get disappointed when I go to these events, I guess My expectations are way to high.
But I did meet some great Great bloggers, which were
lolly, and I was really happy that I did get to meet her, She is definitely one of my favorites and very much the way I thought she would be. Extremely Niceand sweet. I wish I could have spent more time with her and the others that she was with. And also Skittermagoo She was so funny she gave me a pin and a card which I thought was hysterical along with another blogger Nanc NANC she was really nice to. I met them when we were standing on line at the FOLD where there was STR "socks that rock" and I have to say they really do ROCK! I just love knitting with this yarn I have to say you must must must get yourself a skein they are absolutely beautiful. And thanks to Dani this was her plan to get to the FOLD as soon as they open and boy was she right in about 2 hours every thing was gone except for the dyed roving.
So when we got back to the room Dani was taking pictures of the purchases which was crazy to see all the yarn Spread out.
All together I purchased 4 skeins of Socks that rock A whole bunch Koigu which was 12 cents a gram, This was the funny part I was grabbing all I can possibly can waited on this long line you wouldn't believe I was getting closer to checking out and I bailed on half of what i had in my arms, so I ended up spending 60 bucks, It was alright But to tell you the truth I should have bought all the STR I could, Oh well Next time. There wasn't much else But I did get a Denise Kit, I was so happy that Dani found a set for me, I totally forgot to look. On the drive down Both Dani and mary convinced me to get a set and im very greatful because they are awesome. But all in all we had a great time and we are home safe it took us 4 hours exactly with no traffic. Not bad!!!!

It was so great to meet you at MSW, too! What fun it all was, especially the Fold/STR booth. We - Chris (Skittermagoo), Petra (, and I - were all hoping to see you again at the knit blogger's meetup Saturday afternoon, but you were either no where to be found or lost in the crowds.

I'm positively green with envy. I wanted to go, but with quitting work and all, I just couldn't justify it.

When are you going to make a button for your blog?

chris said...

It was soooo great to meet you at MSWF, girlie! I wish we'd made plans to get together later on in the day or something. I heard that the STR was sold out by 10:15am, so it's a good thing we got there first! And the Koigu, oh, the Koigu . . . I'm still just gobsmacked by all that!

And yeah, I got home to find that I only took a few pictures myself, and most of them were not of other bloggers I met! Grrr.

Charisse, you are so kind! I would have loved to spend more time chatting with you! I think we were all just so overwhelmed at the enormity of it all! I hope we get the chance to meet again in the future. I recognized you right away, you are so pretty! :)

I hope that you did have fun - it sounds as if some people might have been snobby towards you? I hope that did not mess things up for you.

Nevertheless, you are so sweet, and it was really my pleasure to meet you!

Best wishes,

Sorry some people were rude to you (at least that is what I'm assuming by your post) I have had that same problem with a few bloggers, kind of like they don't know how to behave respectfully when they are not hidden behind their computers.

My mind shut off at the blogger meetup- too many people to socialize.

The wall 'o STR is amazing. We got their at 10:15 and it was empty. You are one lucky girl.
