One week from today I’ll be in St. Louis at the Loopy Ewe’s Spring Fling. I’m excited, nervous, frantic, and a little overwhelmed. Why?
I’m nervous because it’s my first time and I won’t know many people. What if they don’t like me? I don’t think I’m going to end up sitting by myself for the whole weekend, but new situations always make my self-conscious, doubtful side come out.
It’s taken me almost two weeks to catch up from camp and now I have a week to get ready to leave again. Definitely a bit frantic. I’m sensing take out for dinner.
Part of the weekend is a trip to Loopy central. I actually get to go and stand surrounded by everything the Loopy Ewe has to offer. Touch it. Feel it. Smell it. All of it. A whole huge whack of possibilities waiting for me to snatch them up.
It’s a wet dream and nightmare put together. What should I pick? Will I even be able to see it all? What’s a reasonable budget to set for myself? Can I stick to my budget? Should I pack a paper bag in case I hyperventilate? Overwhelming!
Now here’s where you come in. If you were me what would you be most excited to get your hands on? What have you been dying to see in person? Which yarn have you been stalking?
There are so many options that I don’t have and haven’t seen in person I’m going a bit crazy trying to make a list. And I need a list! Otherwise I’ll go in, freak out, grab one of everything, and come out with no money. Not good.
Numma numma, Black Bunny Fibers, Chewy Spaghetti, Earthly Hues, Yarn Pirate, Tempted Yarns, Sheepaints, and DragonFly Fibers are just a few of the yarns up for consideration. And what about all the not yarn stuff? Bags, tools, accessories, patterns… I think my brain is going to turn to jelly.
So…Help a girl out. Save me from myself. This Friday I need to know what’s your favorite thing?
