....and, as promised below, here are the woodworkers' pictures, surrounded by the beautiful things they have crafted.
....and here is a spinner named Michelle who was simply SPINNING, smiling as if she had never been happier in her life, just to make everyone else smile.
I loaded up on some gorgeous felted bags (ready-made in my view for those who use circular knitting needles and other rounded tools) and smaller tool kits from an Ohio woman who also makes darling necklaces with pictures -- with slogans like "I love to hook" (!!!). I bought at least a dozen.
And then I left. This was a day trip. Someday, it will come over me that women in their late 60s aren't supposed to drive 7 hours in one day. But, until then, I'll continue to do it. And of course, on the way out, I took another final, long glance at the huge tents -- and captured another scene that will never be found on the streets of Detroit. Here I am, taking the picture of some parents taking pictures of children on a wondrous tractor:
Happy Knit and Crochet!!! And thanks to Ohio for having such lovely weather today. svb
