MDSW Weekend / Dilemma

We had a fabulous day at MDSW on Saturday and guess what Sunday too. Yes, we went back on Sunday even though, we discussed on Saturday night that we would not go. As Sunday rolled around we thought, how in the world can we not take advantage of this opportunity! This only comes once and year and it is 40 minutes away and with the yarn GODS calling -- we were on our way..

Our first stop was the RAVELRY meet up. Jess and Casey yall are the best

We finally got to meet Evelyn. Check out the shawl she is working on.

Karida and her mom where there.

and of course we knew Jillsey would be there

Got to meet PinkRibbon

Anne is ready to go home and start spinning

Famous last words to us from Edna and Larry ATS owners
" Save some money for our Friday the 13th sale"

We headed over to the Cloverhill Booth and ran into Jolene and Jody. I believe this booth is the reason for Day2 -- we loved the yarns.

As we strolled around we ran into some more friends.

AmyO ... I love the hat! Barbara and Martha always the life of the party.

Carol was on her way to the Main Building and our friends from Stitch DC was coming back for Round 2.

Chris and Tili Thomas. Tili was another reason for Day 2.
And got to meet Susan aka libknitter on Ravelry.
Day 2

Shelly and the Philosopher talked CiCi into buying 'The Original Philosopher's Two-Handed Fair Isle . I guess she will have to teach me this too.

Ran into Rivka with her parents and Merry Gentleman and E where also strolling around.

It was good to meet Deb -- since we have been reading her blog for months. Also ran into Monica

And to close out this day -- we have a dilemma and we need your help. Please check out the shawl and scarf that are pictured below. Does anyone know the pattern. The ladies told us where they got it and we could not find it anywhere. ( I guess we had a senior moment). We searched every building for the pattern and could not find it. Please if anyone knows the pattern -- please let us know. Thanks. Cici and Chelette
