Got Plucky?

The Plucky Knitter's booth at the Madison Knit In

I got to meet Sarah from The Plucky Knitter again, and had a wonderful weekend with some special knitting friends. The Knit In was all day Saturday - I only went to shop, and to, well, shop. I could not believe how lost I as looking at all of Plucky's wares, I did not know where to start...she is super nice and cute in person, btw. I ended up spending my whole budget at her booth. My Plucky tote bag was fat and I was happy.

I shared the weekend with two special knitters. Carolyn and Christine. They knew each other first in person, and then Christine and I met through a swap - and the rest is history. They are on-line knitty friends who I am lucky enough to occasionally see in "real life". We had such a good time - we stayed at Mansion Hill, which is plushy fabulousness. My husband had an inside-tip on the place, so it was an extra special treat.

Carolyn taught us to crochet in front of the fire. There is an alleged hexagon afghan in my future

We ate wonderful food.

I was tired come Monday but it was worth every second. Knitting has brought me a true appreciation of woman friends. I really enjoyed feeling like I could be myself with these girls. I can't wait til next time. Rhinebeck perhaps?

p.s. I have almost finished a whole bag of Cadbury mini-eggs. I need an intervention.

Oh my, that pile of Plucky looks superb! I love all the blues!
Oh, I'm so looking forward to Maryland Sheep and Wool in May, mainly for the time spent with others engrossed in knitting and fiber goodness!
PS - I have not bought the cadbury eggs yet for this very reason. I love them!

That sounds like a great weekend and I was so surprised to see Carolyn's photo -- I know her from Massachusetts.
