A Magical Time with Grrlfriends
Saturday Sky

What I (We) Did the Last 6 Days

It is hard to describe what it felt like to share 5 days with so many awesome friends. You might call it a slice of heaven.  There was much knitting, much eating, some drinking, and we took that 'be merry' part to heart. Laughter is the language of true friends.

The fiber festival that was small, but packed with fun.  The view couldn't be beat.
We took a class and laughed a lot as you can see from Susan's post.


We participated in a waulking with Anne Carroll-Gilmour (she sure has a beautiful voice) and laughed some more (and very heartily, too).

We bought some good fibery things (my haul from Spinderella, Anne and Laurie) and you can bet there was laughter while making the transactions.


We laughed our way through dinner (and knitting).

We walked around Silver Lake...the talk was punctuated with laughter and more laughter.

We stopped by Black Sheep (again) to say hello to Anne Carroll-Gilmour (again) and did even more laughing. (I love this picture of Anne, Kim, Teresa and Carole.)


Carole and I did some Monkeying around because Monkey's are easy knitting when you're doing lots of laughing. (You'll have to check her blog next week for the fabu Monkey's she knit in Kim's fabulous yarn. Mine is STR Mist.)


It has been too quiet since they left for home and I feel a bit pensive sans friends...it was such a good time.  Thank you for coming, grrlfriends, for being yourselves and for sharing it all with me. 

Psssssst, did you know today is Carole's birthday?


Welcome back! Sounds like a fabulous time.

It sounds like an absolutely fabulous time. The waulking sounds particularly fascinating.

I love seeing your photos and I miss you terribly. Thanks for the birthday shout out, too!

What fun that must have been! I'm really enjoying the photos, looks like a wonderful time!

We did have a blast, didn't we? I miss you already, thanks so much for the opportunity to take a break from normal life and hang out and laugh and knit and just plain get to know each other even better. Mwah!

Every one of those shots really shows off how much fun you were all having. It all sounds like so much fun!

Nothing beats grrlfriends!

What a glorious time you had!

I never did find Laurie's booth on Saturday. I would have bought some soap if I had.

It looks like SO much fun! I just started some Los Monos Locos (Crazy Monkeys) last night - they're toe-up and no purling.

Sounds like a heavenly time!

Doesn't D make a fine spindle?! Nice haul, good friends, some of the best festival pictures I've seen in a long time. Who needs Rhinebeck? (Looks like a change in the temperature in that last shot....has fall arrived in the Wasatch?)

I'm glad you had so much fun!

Gosh, that sounds like a wonderful way to spend a few days! I'm glad you all enjoyed it so much. You really know how to live!

You're making MY jaws hurt from all the laughing! :o)

It's always good to spend fun times with good friends.

It was so easy having grrlfriends when we were all young and dying to get out of our family homes and find ways to be with each other; it takes so much more effort now but means even more. What a great photo-essya/tribute to the power of grrlfriend love.

It looks like you scored some primo loot as well... is that another Greensleeves I see? :-)

One day I want to come have brunch with you at Silver Fork, too. :-)

Lucky grrls!!

What a great time you all had. I am sure that it ended way too soon.

I'm so glad you all had such a nice time together. I'm coming to SnB next week. Yea! Maybe I should bring the Shetland Fern pattern to look over?

I love the Waulking pictures! I am so glad you all dragged me over to the table......it was one of the highlights of the weekend for me. I just loved listening to Anne sing.

Yay for having a great time with great friends!

Sounds like a lot of, uhmmm..., laughing was had. I don't think I laughed that much since the last time I smoked crack.

such beautiful photos - thanks for sharing. It's nice to see them on all of your blogs - that way we get to see everyone!
