No time

for a real post.

Just wanted to thank Maia for my wonderful prize. She made me two luscious spinning batts, Earthy Colors with merino, corriedale, BFL, alpaca and tussah, and Naturals, with merino, BFlL, alpaca, and tussah. I'll try to get photos tomorrow. I'm rushing to finish the SW Merino on my spindle so I can play with these.

I made it to Farmhouse just as the Ravelry gang was getting there. It was nice to put some faces to bloggers. Farmhouse was pretty well picked clean in the sock yarn department, but I picked up a skein of STR lightweight in Turqouise.

I have tons of photos, and links to share, but we're off to the state fair.

I won!

Yay! And . . . I get to pick up my prize in person! Maia's going to be in Portland, on the Ravelry* group's Sock Yarn Hop. I am working that day (oops, forgot to mention that exciting little development here, more about it later!) but I get off at 3 so I can meet up with them at their last stop, Farmhouse Knits!

*Getting closer:

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Social Nerd

You're interested in things such as politics, psychology, child care, and peace. I wouldn't go so far as to call you a hippie, but some of you may be tree-huggers. You're the type of people who are interested in bettering the world. You're possible the least nerdy of them all; unless you participate in other activies that paled your nerdiness compared to your involvement in social activities. Whatever the case, we could still use more of you around. ^_^
