Wool Gathering '08

The most important thing about this year's Wool Gathering was the change to the welcome sign.

Here's the picture from two years ago:

And here's the picture from this year:

I feel so much better. Don't you?

Kimmie and I trekked to Yellow Springs last Sunday to enjoy another Wool Gathering. Everything was pretty much the same, and we loved every bit of it. The yarn, the roving, the knitters, the spinners, the sheeps, the ducks, the ice cream... What more could you pack into one day?

You'd be proud of me. I only bought one skein of sock yarn. Yes, that's right. One skein. And you can ask Kimmie and Wendy, it was a fight to the finish. I had my heart set on yarn from Knitting Knotions all afternoon, but finally succumbed to the allure of more Casbah from Handmaiden. I also got a monkey stitch marker and a couple sheepy Christmas ornaments. I'll show you pictures later. I also took video this time of the duck-herding sheep dog, but I'm not able to upload it at the moment.

Things to look forward to!
Here at Drunken Monkey Knits!
To look forward to!

Don't you ever want to just come to my house and we can sit on the couch, doing crafty things?

How do you get to Yellow Springs? I hear that it's a friendly little place to visit.
