Eventful weekend so far. I posted on Knitty that I likely wouldn't be able to get to that Boerne Fiber Festival, then at the last minute I got a wild hair up my butt and went. By myself. If I'd had a braincell I would have called Robincat to go with me. But no. I keep forgetting that 6am is NOT too freaking early for the rest of the planet. Just me.

Ahem. Anyway. I know y'all are skipping the blather and jumping to the photos anyway, so I'll stop blathering. Linking highlights here, if you want to see ALL of the photos, here's the album.



And then, the loot.



Yes, I could NOT wait to spin up that brightly colored stuff in my loot.



If y'all want more details, like captions on the photos, holler. It's late here and I want to go to sleep. G'night.

One of those 'more about me' questionnaire things I got in an email. Normally I just delete them, but this had some questions I'd not seen before. So...heck. Why not? Feel free to gank the questions and answer them yourself. Or not. I don't care.

1. WHAT COLOR ARE YOUR KITCHEN PLATES? Black, clear, white, cream…all mismatched from about five different sets.
2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? None. Read all the ones at home. No inclination to go buy / check out more.
3. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? The mouse, duh. Printed on the mouse pad itself though is the Petsmart Charities logo with a painting by Robert McClintock.
4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? Bazaar
5. LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS? Overly perfumey anything, and rotting stuff
6. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? Can I get away with laying here for five more minutes?
11. CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? Chocolate
12. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST? Not really, no.
13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? Does my cat with a full stomach count? Otherwise, a hand knitted Pasha penguin made for me by Monkeemaven.
14. DO YOU LIKE THUNDERSTORMS? yes
15. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? 1979 Chevy Beauville van, modified into a street van by relatives in Chicago. Big, ugly, gas-guzzling, and totally kickbutt.
16. SIGN? Wrong Way.
17. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? I’d rather not.
18. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB WHAT WOULD IT BE? Help desk technical support for knitters.
19. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY COLOR HAIR? What’s wrong with the color it is now?
20. IS THE GLASS HALF FULL OR HALF EMPTY? It’s always completely full. Just the amount of liquid varies, the rest is filled with air. Go ahead, call me a smart alec. Ask me if I care.
21. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? Difficult to say. I like lots of movies.
22. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? I think I do. Mostly at least.
23. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? Storage boxes full of yarn, dust bunnies, drifts of cat hair that avoided the broom last time I swept...
24. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER? 3.1415926…very useful number.
25. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? none
26. YOUR SINGLE BIGGEST INTENSE PAIN? Eyeball-squishing migraine
27. PERSON MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? No one, this isn't an email.
28. WHO IS LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Again, no one.
29. KETCHUP OR MUSTARD? Both
30. HAMBURGER OR HOT DOG? Hamburger, it's not 'mystery meat'.
31. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEASON? Winter, actually get to wear the things I knit.
32. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VACATION SPOT? Home, on the sofa, with my knitting and my spinning wheel within easy reach.
33. WHAT SCREEN SAVER IS ON YOUR COMPUTER RIGHT NOW? Here? No idea. At home, a slideshow of photos from my hard drive.
34. FAVORITE FAST FOOD? Hm. I’d have to go with Whataburger’s grilled chicken sandwich.
35. YOUR BIRTH NAME? Ana Maria Carranza (actually, the hospital band that my mom kept says "Girl Carranza".)
