Whew! Yesterday was a lovely, busy day!

We spent the day in D.C. for the Knit Out & Crochet.
Capital Building
It was a bit disappointing. I'd been a few years ago, and felt that while a nice event for showing others about knitting, for someone who's already established there didn't seem to be much... and despite two years to work out kinks, this year didn't seem much better organized.

But we did get a chance to see a few of the museums, which I certainly don't get to do very much.

We got to see Lauren and Christina and Megan, and a few other people when we all just happened to run into each other on our way out.

On the way home we drove past an exit for an antique mall that we've both seen dozens of times before, so we decided to swing in... I saw four spinning wheels - a great wheel, a spinning wheel-turned-planter, a working spinning wheel that had a lightbulb in the top of it for a lamp, and one that looked very similar to Loireag, and was labeled as being from 1890, and ticketed at $550. Feeling quite pleased that Loireag cost me only $81, we left because it was all I could do to keep from whining and limping. No one wants that.

And we did so much walking that now I have blisters on my feet, plus a sore throat and the beginnings of a cold, I think.

But I have now ordered all the yarn I need for holiday gifts, and the plan is to focus this week on getting my entries ready for Montpelier and then keep plugging away on the gift knitting.

Apparantly feeling guilty at having been away so much, GB has said he'll buy me a new digital camera next week, so someone from ROAK will get a little gift shortly thereafter of the camera Jen gave me.

In the meantime, I could really use a nap.

This cold coming on couldn't possibly have anything to do with my foul mood last week, could it?

There's an herbal tea called Lemon Echinacea Throat Coat by Traditional Medicinals that did wonders for my sore throat last week.
Hope you're feeling better soon!

Hey Amie, I thought it was nice to see you all even if Knit Out was not the best of times. Did you see the pics on my blog? I think that they came out pretty well. I hope to talk to you again soon! Take care!

Sorry Knit Out wasn't that good this year. But, maybe it will get some other knitting! Feel better soon! Get some rest and stay in bed!


I'm off to find the guineas on KR.....
