I have spent the past few days reading of everyone’s adventures and misadventures at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. It has been lots of fun to live vicariously and I have miraculously managed to remain mostly not bitter.
I have been telling myself that I have enough yarn – that I really shouldn’t add to my stash until I whittle some of it away. I have also held on to the thought of Rhinebeck in the fall – it’s a smaller event where I am less prone to cranky outbursts. These thoughts combined have made me feel somewhat, if not completely better about missing the festivities.
That is until this morning. Until I saw this.
Do you see that?
It is a mini. A little red mini sitting happily in the field/parking lot.
Until now I have thought only of myself – how it was okay for me to miss the fun.
What about Onslow? What about his feelings? Why doesn’t he matter??
If I prick him, will he not bleed?
You realize of course, what this means …… yup
I wish that you were at MDS&W so I could have met both you and Onslow. For now, though, I’ll have to continue this online love affair with him. Maybe we will meet in Rhinebeck? ;) Oh yes, I think that I prefer Rhinebeck also – fewer crowds and more sheep, definitely!
It wasn’t Meep (who has a white top). Now Meep’s jealous too, though. :-(
Something wacky is up w/ my bloglines… it says you haven’t had any new posts since the horseshow (which is clearly incorrect!) WTH??
Anyway, Onslow woulda LOVED it… And we woulda loved having you! :) As far as firsts… I have a totally unrelated super secret project to work on first before I can touch ANY of my S&W haul… but after that, I think a triangle shawl of some Brooks…
