I went to Starbucks on Friday afternoon and met up with a friend and helped her with her knitting. I showed her how to ladder down and knit up and maintain a pattern. It worked and she is happy. I finished writing up my documentation for kingdom A&S and went home to print everything out, pack everything for the trip Saturday and get to bed at a reasonable time.
I was woken up by a phone call from my friends at 5:30 am Saturday and initially thought that something had gone wrong and we were not going to be able to go. On the contrary, they were calling to see if I could be ready to go earlier than the 7 am departure time. I said sure, got up, got dressed, and was mostly ready to go when they arrived. We got under way at 6:30 am and arrived in Marshfied, WI around 9:30. Since we had time we decided to hit a local cafe and have breakfast, which was awonderful choice. P was originally going to go, but elected to stay home and shuffle cars for the plow and work on stuff for Gulf Wars.
He entered his mosaic and received a first and a great many compliments.
I entered one of the socks (I finished the calf decoration on the other at the event so I am in the home stretch) and also received a first.
I got to fiber geek with people. Hang out with friends and basically have a good time, despite being fried from judging for hours. Ick!
P is leaving for Gulf Wars on Saturday, but before he leaves we are going to see the movie 300 Friday night. I can't wait!
