final tally

phew - the show is over!! it was so much fun (once i got past the panic - just ask tangledfrog about that!) & although i didn't sell as much as i had hoped, it was really busy & went really well. there was yarn everywhere - in baskets...


in even more baskets...

& piled up in chairs...

unless, that is, the chairs were otherwise occupied with knitters & spinners...


how much yarn, you ask? well, i'm pretty impressed - victoria got it absolutely bang on, with 254 skeins!!! victoria, please send me a ravelry message (i'm tigerlilith there, too) or email me at info AT oldmaidenaunt DOT com to claim your prize!
& for those of you that couldn't make it through, you'll be pleased to know that there's still a whole pile of yarn left. i'll be adding it to the web shop gradually over the rest of this week - although the show was on saturday, & it's now monday, i'm still completely & utterly exhausted, so i need to take my time! every ounce of my energy for the past few weeks has been going into yarn prep for this, & now that it's over, my brain has simply given up. i'm completely incapabale of anything requiring thought, & am likely to remain that way for some time - thank goodness for things requiring little or no attention! the plan for today? old episodes of america's next top model (via youtube - i should be embarrassed about watching this, but i'm totally not!), & some knitting 101 (hooray for garter stitch)...
