You know that feeling when you know something is just so good that you couldn't possibly get it for yourself. Well, after an age and a half of drooling over the Briar Rose Fiber website, I finally decided that I would get some, not for myself mind you, but as a special gift. My friend and blogging buddy was graduating with her degree in nursing. What better way to celebrate than to get a big, never ending skein of Briar Rose. So I plunged in, ordered the skein, and proceeded to turn green with envy.
Well little did I know that Chris and Biar Rose Fibers were not far off for my own stash. The very next weekend I headed off to Ohio to visit my mom. When I got there she told me she's seen ads for a Sheep and Wool Fest. HA HAAAA! I just love my mom. She knows exactly what I like. Off we went to the Great Lakes Sheep & Wool & Fiber Show in Wooster, Ohio. Whooo Hoooo! and how fabulous, guess who was there.
Look how happy I am. I really could have just climbed right into that basket.
I even had to get out my phone and call my friend to crow a bit.
I met Chris!
I touched absolutely all of the fiber!
I bought a huge never ending skein for myself and I didn't even have to get a degree in anything. Isn't it lovely.
In no time at all I was knitting up a storm.
The Through the Looking Glass sweater had caught my eye , so let the needles fly
The moral of the story is that if something seems too good for you, it's probably exactly what you need! :0
