OK. It’s Tuesday and I’m still a little woozy. WHO would think a hangover could last this long?


You would, if you were one of the thousands of people who were out at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center this weekend, getting higher than a kite on EVERY type of fiber imaginable.

I wasn’t really planning on going but when Theresa mentioned she and Julie were making the trip AND taking the Blue Line, I was a goner. The train lets you off just about two blocks from the building and it was a done deal.

First stop: Blue Moon Fiber Arts, which you see above. I love their Motto: “Changing the World One Sock at a Time”. And if the teeming mass of knitters swarming that booth were any indication, these folks are headed for Total Global Domination!

Second Stop: but of course, no trip to a Fiber Fest would be complete without a hearty hail howdy to the wonderful folks at the Fold! They were, IMHO, best of show, as always and paired with their friends from Canada, Rovings, made me the mess I am today. I got INTOXICATED with fiber, ladies and gentlemen. Laugh if you must, but I predict if you ever make this journey you will fall down the same slippery slope. Just ask some of the incredible people [hey Franklin! hey Sean! hey KathyM! hey KarenB! hey Laila!] I met and talked to – they will tell you I was having a hard time remembering my name…


In fact, the fiber high coupled with a large Latte on the Train, made me lose my bearings and I lost my traveling companions for a few seconds until Corinne, who had joined-in-progress, spun me around and showed me just who had discovered their favorite treasure trove…
