Guess who's going this year? Me! I planted the seed by getting my sister hooked on knitting at Christmas. I gifted her with 3 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas Hand dyed bulky
, size 11 needles, and a copy of Stitch n' Bitch (and a Michael Stars t-shirt, cause I give good gifts). Oh, did I mention, my sister lives in Baltimore. So anyhow, last week I emailed her about Maryland Sheep & Wool
and asked her if she would be interested in going. Last night she called me for knitting advice from CA where she was vacationing and had just stopped at A Mano in Venice Beach. Hooked! And when I went on Orbitz to search for flights, they were a reasonable $97 round trip from Chicago! So I called my other sister, and she said book it, and I did. Now I've got a combination Sisters Weekend/Yarn Shopping Festival set for May 4-6th, what can be better than that?
