Spa, Knit and Spin, New England Textile Arts' version of Woodstock. The purpose of "Spa" is to commune with like-minded folk (three hotels worth, plus daytrippers). There was some amazing yarn available from the vendors, notably Sereknity, Starcroft, and of course, Ball and Skein. Mary Jane was my partner in not crime. It's amazing how little damage we do together. Tamara, on the other hand, was unstoppable, even after she asked us to stop her.
So I recharged with beloved friends, and met some new ones too. Some of the new ones felt like old ones, thanks to the online community. Stitchy McYarnpants and I discussed leg hair somewhere around the 45 second mark after being introduced.
I had been skipping along happily with my latest design, dubbed Eileen Mary after my Mother-in-Law. Cascade Eco + is a lovely lofty wool with depth of color. Well, it was all skippy, happy, lovely until one of my balls of Eco disappeared. Into thin air. Eco comes in huge hanks, so I only needed two of them. I hand wound center pull balls as big as pumpkins.
So I ordered more, and now I have enough to knit something else huge. And if I'm ever reunited with ball #1, well, who knows.
