KW Knitter's Fair

Our annual pilgrimage to the Kitchener Waterloo Knitter's Guild Fair. I have not seen Sandy in a year and we show up wearing the same colour. We think alike and dress alike, what can I say? Julia took our picture, thanks kiddo.
I bought a square circular knitting needle!! I am very intrigued and will let you know what I think of it. I also got the Herbert Niebling book of Knitted Lace Designs, it was pricey but I couldn't resist. A vial of #8 beads for the copper lace weight for the test knit shawl and...sigh... a hank of merino silk lace weight in a deep blue. So I will have to reset my counter again.
I am exhausted. We walked miles!! It was a wonderful day and beside all the beautiful patterns, and wool-silk-alpaca-lama-mohair-cotton-flax yarns, notions and beads I had the opportunity to reconnect with a dear friend and share a wonderful day with my daughter.
(Corinne, you have to take a sick day next year we missed you.)

Grrrr this working for a living sucks! I always miss out of the knitting fun. (You and Sandy are the cutest BFF's.)
