Field Trip!

Sorry for the lapse in the blogging last week - I was traveling for work...and confusing my coworkers by requesting some paper clips (I had to move some stitches around on the Firestarter socks and I'm magic looping the pair and had no stitch holders or anything that could double for stitch holders on hand) Fear not, the socks are progressing much better than Bayerische!

Anyhow, while away, I managed to get a Fibery Field Trip in...

to visit Sheri and the Elves at the Loopy Ewe!

Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me so I didn't get a photo of the big Loopy Sign out front, but Sheri had her camera, so I'm using her photo :) That would be me, with what remains of the Spritely Goods yarn in my arms - I think it was something like 6 skeins or so.

In case you're wondering, yes, visiting the Loopy Ewe is like fiber overload! I couldn't decide what to bring home. Course, all the Wollmeise was long gone, so I settled for some Fiesta Boomerang instead - and some lace weight yarns...and some needles. Because a girl can't have too many Addi's ;) - I actually needed to go down a size on the Firestarters and I didn't want to have to wait until I was back home to do so - so I've now got another pair of US1s :) which means I can now queue more socks because as long as I have the needles...I can cast on for more projects ;)

How cool! I think I would pass out in a place like that. It is hard enough to resist the call of the yarn over the internet. In person it would be completely overwhelming!
