I'm glad you all had such a great time. I so wanted to be there! The yarn that you got looks wonderful, Ingrid. I drooled over some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino a few weeks ago at a shop I was in- I WILL knit with it someday!!

Oh what fun, lucky for all of you! I may join in next time, I am only about 2 hours away myself.
Well... what are you using first from the treasure trove?? I would have a hard time deciding, maybe just pile it all around me and roll around until inspiration strikes. Knit on!

We're definitely going to do it again come spring/summer. Please come!!
I don't know what to use first. the large skeins of hand-dyed alpaca are beyond soft. I handed one to different family members, and the first reaction is Oooooooh in a higher pitched voice. I am determined to finish what I have on the needles first, though. Otherwise I'll make myself insane. Meanwhile, I have been rolling around in it! :rofling: <---that's me rolling and smiling!

We had so much fun!! I wish it could have been LONGER, it went so fast!

Okay, here are my pics below, and HERE is a video! of us being goofy and saying "hi to everyone!" (I'm afraid it's huge, fast to watch but big to download, 27 mb, I hope it works for everyone, it's not in my usual video format.)

We met at Fitzwilly's restaurant. Poor Ingrid said she got a bit lost trying to find the place, and then had the not-uncommon experience of being yelled at by a self-righteous Northampton pedestrian ("I didn't know it was a state law here to stop the car for pedestrians!"). But she arrived unscathed by the local wildlife , as did Lisa and Jeremy, and we had a wonderful lunch and knit session!
Ingrid took this one for me of the rest of us:


Here's Jeremy


Here's Lisa/sogrammatical and I


Here's Ingrid (dawning a GORGEOUS sweater she made--recognize the pattern on it from her old avatar?). Ingrid and I compared techniques for weaving in yarn in the back of knitting. *swoon* (Ingrid's my new soul mate.)


That's all for my pictures. We had lots of fun drooling over yarn at Webs. Jeremy and Ingrid both purchased a great stash at Webs. Lisa and I, being spoiled locals who often shop at Webs, were more modest in our purchases, and mostly lived vicariously through Ingrid and Jeremy, enjoying all the goodies they got!! That alpaca that Ingrid got was exquisite, we could hardly tear ourselves away from that rack, it was SOOOOO yummy.

Thanks Lisa and Ingrid and Jeremy, it was so awesome hanging out with you! We're planning on meeting up again in Spring or Summer. :D
