Spring show season, over. Phew! Maryland Sheep and wool Fest was a whirlwind, as expected. Karida of Neighborhood Fibers and Sarah and Sam of Cephalopod Yarns and I had a blast in the LlamaJama booth on Saturday. I want to thank all of the folks who came t see us and buy our yarn.
The show turned out to be a bit more of a whirlwind even than we expected. Saturday evening, we received a call from the MDSW committee asking us to vacate the booth, as we were running the booth for LlamaJama, but the owner was not present. Sunday morning early we broke things down, and then I headed over to the Cloverhill yarns booth with Karida and Ann Weaver to volunteer there. I know there were some confused folks out there, and I'm so sorry about that. We did have a great time on Saturday though!
I will continue to apply for my own booth. Some folks have sent emails to the MDSW committee, just letting them know that they appreciate our yarns and hope to shop from us at the show:) Laura Blueswirly drafted a sample letter for anyone who wants to sned one.
We have hosted two fabulous classes in the studio. Ann Weaver's Color theory for Knitters had people looking at color in a whole new way. We made little fingering yarn "cupcakes" for students in a full rainbow of semi solids and people scarfed them up! I became inspired to start an Alber's Cowl myself. I knit on this project at MDSW. As you can see, i have a ways to go:)
