Finally about the Frolic

I fully intended to write this post last week. I had the best of intentions. The week started with a 5 hour long meeting for Ron & I to choose everything for the new house. Once that was over I seem to have lost my way for the rest of the week. I know things happened and that I was busy, but I’m not sure what was accomplished.

Back at the end of April I went to Toronto with Debbie of Sheeps Ahoy to help her out in her booth at the Frolic.

This worked out fantastically, because I got to meet up with Sarah, who used to live in Ottawa and is greatly missed by our sit & knit group:

An even more rare meeting was seeing my friend Jennifer. We hadn’t met up since her wedding almost 10 years ago. Her sister’s wedding brought her back to Canada from Dubai. We’ve known each other since grade 7 & now we both knit & spin. Life is good!

The booth was busy & many folks were tempted by the kits that Debbie had made up for almost all of the patterns in Kate Davies’ book Colours of Shetland. I already have the book, of course, and I’m thinking that I might need the yarn to knit up the Scatness Tam (in my spare time).

What I did come home from the Frolic with was quite reasonable, in my opinion.

My haul: a one of a kind batt from my friend Jennifer, who has a drum carder, a lovely skein of Hedgehog Fibres yarn (found at Georgetown Yarn) and 3 skeins of Indigodragonfly Octobaa in Don’t Blink.

That should keep me busy for a little while.
