No, not this year. I have (non-knitterly) friends coming in from out of town and am looking forward to spending the weekend with them. Sure wish I could do both though. On the other hand, my stash can certainly support me for another year...

ditto - my stash could probably support me for another dozen years. And I too, have family events going on this weekend. Maybe next year.

I went today and was very well behaved.
I picked up some yarn for my stash (actually some I was actually looking for)
purchased a set of circular signature needles
and info for other items to fill my room

I had a great time this weekend. It was wonderful to see so many friends and to peruse the different merchants. And I cannot believe how wonderful the weather was. I don't remember so mild an MDSW for a decade or so.

I went for the first time in two or three years (on Sunday). Crowds seemed smaller than I recalled, but more vendors. Perhaps because it was Mother's Day and/or the threat of rain kept people away.
Hey Lanea, I bought one of your wonderful bags! I'd been looking at your etsy shop and wishing there was more inventory. Now I realize it was all at MDS&W!
I'm not sure I really enjoy S&W, it's so exhausting and overwhelming. But it's great seeing a lot of stuff in person rather than online.

Thanks, Peggy! I'm glad you found one you liked. I did make a huge pile of bags for MDSW. I'll try to get the remaining ones listed in my Etsy shop soon, but the excellent gardening weather is calling me. I'm always happy to make custom bags, too.

Lanea, I'm curious about your bags too. I favorited your site on etsy, and will check back later. I love the idea of being able to knit while I walk. Love. It.

Thanks, Robinsteph. The bags really help me knit on the subway without dropping anything or getting my yarn tangled up with other things in my purse.

Lanea, the bag I bought is now in use. Beautiful fabrics, simple elegant clever design, and wonderful craftwomanship. It was one of the small ones; now I think I'm going to need a bigger one!

Lanea, I can really see the value of that, now that I'm bringing my knitting with me on the underground. The other day I got up and had to unwind the yarn from around my legs before I could move. I've heard of that happening, but it was the first time for this new knitter! I laughed and laughed.

Peggy, I'm so glad you like it! And thank you for your compliments--that means so much to me.

Robinstephanie, I've done that too, and dropped DPNs, and walked away from a train not realizing my yarn was still on the train . . . I love that I can read or knit on the subway rather than driving to work, but my clumsiness made those bags a necessity.

I'm sorry it's taking me so long to post bags in my etsy shop, but I jumped right into revamping my studio to make way for a new table when I came home from MDSW, and things are a bit chaotic at the moment. I do have a couple dozen bags waiting to be listed, so once I can get to my camera I'll hop to it.

Kudos to Clara for a FABULOUS KR video tour of MDSW. The first fiber festival I've "visited" without buying anything!

Glad you enjoyed it! And you're right, with a virtual fiber festival you have no walk of shame back to the car with pounds of yarn and fiber...no sore feet, and no fried dough overload either.

Fabulous video - thank you so much! It brought me big smiles and great joy this morning (and saved me thousands of dollars and a tummyache from over-indulging in the yummy foods).

Thank you for the memories. This year was my first experience at the MD Sheep and Wool fest, and I'm still on a fiber high, I even caught a glimpse of myself in your film and felt the excitement all over again. Once again thanks for the wonderful short film you've captured it all.

Yes, great little flick, Clara! I've never been to a ff before, so it was real fun for this newbie to see what goes on. And um, loved the end credits. "And for god sakes, wear wool." he he he. nice.

I wondered if anyone would get to the end of the credits! I figured what the heck, why not use that moment to proselytize. I had many, many more clips that could have, and should have, made it into the video. Time and my laptop's processing power got the best of me. Next time.
