Maybe with some of these new purchases?
On Saturday at Maryland Sheep and Wool, I found myself sticking to a three-color palette of reds, greens and browns. I didn't buy any blues, which is what I normally gravitate towards.
During the first hour, I didn't think I would buy anything. It was my first time at MD S&W and I was very overwhelmed by the crowds, by the many, many booths. L and I sort of wandered aimlessly. We didn't know where to start.
We started the day out very nicely with breakfast when we met the Columbia knit night girls at Coleen's (and we got to see her beautiful Arwen). What a treat! It kept me sustained most of the day. I did stop long enough to eat a single bbq sandwich, but that's all.
Here's the booth selling Socks That Rock. Or rather, this is the line of people trying to get in to the booth selling STR. Can you see how I could be a little freaked out?
L and I made it inside the booth after lunch, where there was still some STR left (see the mostly bare walls behind the lovely, blogless, L?).
She bought some of the famed yarn, but I got this Gypsy Girl stuff instead:
The best part of the outing was getting to meet other knitters. At the blogger meetup, I met Mel, who was wearing a gorgeous sweater, Susan, Stephanie (love her blog name!), Mary (in the pretty, red tank/vest) and Gryphon (whose skirt in the summer Interweave Knits I love!).

And of course, here are the requisite animal pics:
And, finally, a good husband award goes to John, Jody's husband, who stood in line for an hour(!) to get t-shirts for Jody and about 10 of her friends, including me. Aren't they cute?
