...you know the rest. It really was just an idea to test yarn fibers. At the Swap. Yes, it needs a capital letter. The Scissorinis (I'm being considerate of Ryan) know a thing or two about a swap. Need evidence?
That's a lot of yarn. Big decisions needed to be made. That was just the start, though. There was a second swap for notions and books, and a third swap for single skeins of yarn.
The food was amazing, and Jennie was a gracious hostess, opening her lovely home to all sorts of deviant yarn-inspired behavior. Such as this.
Yes, it's a sheep. Hanging by a string. To see what happened, head over to Sarah's. Go ahead, I'll wait.
After Christine took the final mighty swing, there was a frenzy for candy of notions. I'll admit, the sugar rush from the candy was perfect for my drive home.
Thank you so much to Jennie and the other Hat City Scissor Squad members for the hospitality. They remind me so much of my ol' Abq SnB. I had a blast hanging out with everyone, loved that I finally met Christine in person, and was SO happy to see my old friend Susie again...it had been too long, and I'm glad to have reconnected with her.
Wanna see my loot? I thought so.
This lovelies are silk cocoons. Sarah brought them, and I just adore them. I've looked online to learn how to spin them, but haven't found good directions yet, so if anyone can point the way, I'd appreciate it.
There was a goody bag, too, as if all this bounty weren't enough, and it included candy and a candle and a cd with knitting and drinking songs.
My advice? If you're ANYWHERE near Danbury, make an effort to hang out with the Squad. You won't regret it!
