It started with the MN Knitters Guild's yearly event Yarnover.
I always make it a point to work at Yarnover.
There are stores from all over the state that come to sell their wares along with smaller farm-based spinners, basket makers, potters and other artisans.
It is a great opportunity to see what is out there that we don't sell at Yarnery and also to, dare I say it, enhance the stash.
I will say that I held firm to a point.
I bought neither basket nor yarn, though I did bring money for those things.
I did, however, buy this darling tiny bowl by Jennie the Potter.
I also got to see a lot of customers that I hadn't seen in a while.
I used to work 3-5 days a week at the Yarnery before I had the Hug-a-Bugs and now I work 1-3 days depending on the number of exciting yarn events going on.
As a result, I have missed seeing people and what they are knitting.
It is fun to check in once a year at least with the most prolific knitters.
And then, as if that wasn't enough, I sat for Franklin of The Panopticon for his 1,000 Knitters Project.
Franklin is a sweet sweet man.
I sat and knitted on the scarf of many knitters for about 3 minutes and then I went back to work.
Only after I left did I realize that my hair was a total disaster.
I hope he was taking pics of the knitting and not my head.
He said that today he got up to about 600 knitters in the project.
After I was done with my shift at Yarnover, I came home and the sun came out, I know, hard to believe, but it actually came out and the sky was bluish if not blue.
The Hug-a-Bugs and I went outside for a little frolic and the Elder Hug-a-Bug drew a hopscotch board while I took pictures of the budded out silver maple.
For those who are waiting for a Fifth Lamp Photo for April, I will have time tomorrow.
Now I've said that, I guess that I better take one...
Have a happy Saturday,
