Today, my knitting group is attending the Great Lakes Fiber Show, a local 'sheep and wool' held at the Wayne County Fairgrounds in Wooster, OH. I have attended this show for about 4 or 5 years, and each year, it grows. This thrills me to no end as there is such an interest in knitting/spinning/crochet/weaving that it warms my heart. I love seeing other people who love the things I love. However, I don't need yarn! I believe last year, when I attended with my friends Mary and Andrea, I bought a niddy noddy and a 40" size 8 needle. I can't remember any yarn coming home with me. That will probably be the case this year, as well. What I really want - and TOTALLY don't need - are some beautiful crochet hooks. I'll be on the lookout!
No matter if I need yarn or not, my reason for visiting this show - or any fiber-related event - is the camaraderie! I seriously have one of the greatest knitting groups on the planet. These ladies (and gentleman) are funny, charming, intelligent, and just all-around wonderful! My Wednesday nights would not be the same without them.
