MSW, part 1

Maryland Sheep and Wool was last weekend and, let me tell you, it was a lot of fun! I can't believe that it took me so long to finally go to one! I only went to school right up the road.

Anywho, I drove to Maryland this weekend by way of Gettysburg to meet the librarians for lunch. It was fun to quickly catch up and to see the changes that have been happening there. I also really liked the display they had up about knitting :) Some of the projects were really wonderful.

After Gettysburg, I drove to Baltimore where I was spending the weekend with friends. Learning how to play the drums/bongos on Rock Band was fun. (No, there aren't actually bongos in Rock Band. I just hit the drums with my hands because it was less dangerous for myself and others if I didn't use the drumsticks. What can I say? I shouldn't be trusted with sticks.) We also went out to dinner in the Inner Harbor Saturday night and out to a couple of bars (Spring = lots of bachlorette parties). When I was at the festival on Saturday, my friends went out sailing. It was a great day for it!

The festival was so much fun. I met up with some people (Hi, Janelle! Isn't it funny that we didn't see each other the rest of the weekend?) including my friend from Ohio and her friend. They drove past my car on their way to a parking space and we all happened to meet up while I was going back there to dump stuff off and grab my lunch. I spent a lot of money (perhaps too much but, hey, I will call it a graduation present to myself). I don't have my camera with me right now so I will post pictures tomorrow. And *drumroll* I bought a spinning wheel! I am absolutely in love!!!! More tomorrow.

Oooooooo, you bought a wheel?!? I was thinking of taking a beginning spinning class this summer...

You will love it! If for nothing else but the challenge of figuring out how the wheel works. I'd definitely recommend renting or borrowing a wheel from someone. Then, if you do decide you love spinning, you will know a little bit more about wheels before you have to buy your own. If you decide you don't, it won't be as much of a financial investment.
