You have all been so patient while waiting for my photos and recap of Fiber Revival – thanks for that! I wish I could say the delay was because I had so many photos to process or something but the sad truth is that I didn’t take very many photos. The ones I took were pretty good, though, so at least there’s that.
Jo-Ann and I headed up early Saturday morning (sadly, Sharon couldn’t join us at the last minute – boooo) and we managed to sail right through Boston and arrived shortly after 9:30. We set up our wheels and began spinning with friends.
There were smiles all around throughout the morning, as evidenced by this photo of Erin and Diane. Good times, lots of chatting and swapping of stories, all while spinning away.
We were visited by this handsome rooster while we spun. Given the number of cameras that were whipped out I’d say he’s probably the most photographed rooster in Massachusetts right now. I’ve heard rumors that there will be sock yarn dyed in these colors and to that I say: bring it!
The morning passed quickly and happily but around 11 or so, there were distinct rumblings of discontent. These rumblings had nothing to do with the weather – it was perfect – or the vendors – they were awesome. It had to do with the noticeable absence of the Ipswich Ale Beer Truck. Some of us – ahem – feel that 11 am is plenty late enough to start drinking beer.
Happily the truck was spotted pulling up the drive about 5 minutes later. The tap began to flow with lovely ale.
And the smiles returned to all of our faces.
We continued smiling throughout the afternoon as we ate a delicious lunch, drank a bit more beer, shopped a bit, spun a bit and visited a lot.
It was a perfect day.
