So, I survived. It was good - not as busy as last year, but good. TONS of people, but it appears that most of them stayed outside/didn't come by the clan village.

Met ritaspins37 - she brought her Kromski and we played. It was good. I hadn't seen a Kromski IRL, so that was cool - it is a very pretty wheel. While I LOVE my AA's, I am a bit.....OK, paranoid is not a strong enough word here for them. *g* I still need to get a cheap, portable, knock-about wheel to haul around...my problem is the whole efficiency thing. I'm spoiled. A Kromski might be the ticket - must do some research. It was great getting to hang with another spinner, and being able to talk about *anything* and *everything*...and she's coming back today!

It was productive - even with the gabbing, and the demo-ing, I got 4 oz of roving spun up and plied. Sock weight, yet. (Did I mention it was kinda slow for us?) I started on the next colorway - then the Pyr rescue group I got my 2 from came by. I should be getting some Pyr hair to play with *today*. Whee! That should be fun!

Caught 1 male...but he's kiltless. (And he can't keep his bloody hands to himself.) *sigh* I prefer kilts...must work on that more today (although he seems nice, and gives good back rubs....the whole no kilt thing is a problem. So are the wandering, uninvited hands. Ah, well - I am the Administrator of the Texas Catch and Release Program, so I'll just throw him back when I'm done with him. Which will be soon, I can tell. *g*)

Clan MacDuff had some wonderful baskets they auctioned off - I didn't win, but they were nice. Clan Keith was there....they did not retaliate, but the weekend isn't over yet. *eg*

Oh - and. And. AND - I can fit in my PENDRAGON Bodice again! The one I haven't fit in since Herself was born (and she'll be 9 in June). Wheee Haw! (3 guesses on what I'm wearing today...*g*) Gentlemen, I'm back - be warned! *eg*

I'm not quite sure if these are the kinds of kilts that you like, but it does answer a question i had... (not for children) http://www.anomalies-unlimited.com/Odd%20Pics%202/Kilts.html
I'm glad that you had a good weekend!

Kromski

I have also admired the look of the Kromski wheels, but when I tried them out I kept tipping them over!
