I shot this from my camera phone. It was a sure sign that we were in the right place! This crazy van is the 'Yarn Buss' from Flying Fingers Yarn Shop out of New York. How fun!
I think the biggest highlight was meeting so many wonderful people. I really had the best time with these girls. Everyone was so inspiring and fun to be around. Such great sense of humors too - we had a LOT of laughs!

Saturday night at the Student Show, Erica, Melynda, Carrie and I had so much fun chatting it up that we were the last ones to leave the banquet hall. We even had a bit of a swag swap in the hallway outside. I poured out my Knitterella stash and walked away with a lovely blue skein of Sock-a-licious from Kollage Yarns and a copy of Irish Girlie Knits newest pattern Bellingrath!
I even have the possibility of some new graphic design work coming my way. Designing for knitters - my favorite. What a successful weekend!
Of course I bought a lot of new yarn and projects to knit too. So much so that I'm a little embarrassed to post a photo of everything. I don't know what I was thinking, I mean I have a lot of projects to finish up as it is. Then again, I know exactly what I was thinking, I was thinking I TOTALLY HAVE A KNITTING ADDICTION!
