Getting to SPA 2013 - Pics and Stories

Says Nancy Shay:  "Started my journey to SPA last night. Stopped in Lowell to spend the night and pick up my traveling companion. This morning while knitting I found a new knitting buddy, Simon!"

From GeorgeAnn Duval:

"Spa Train to FiberTastic Alley"

As I waited for the Spa Train this morning I felt like I was stepping into a scene of Harry Potter... Did I bring every thing I needed? Will someone take the 42 lbs of yarn that I so painstakingly packed home as their own (orange bag) What would the vendor lane be like? I imagined it would be like Harry feeling like he would need another eight eyes to take it all in! Tomorrow will tell as I venture to the Diagon Alley of Spa 2013, where there will be shops selling yarn, both thick and thin, and craftsmen selling spinning wheels both compact and elaborate!

SPA 2013 promises to bring fun and laughter. What more can a gal ask for! Well, this tops them all... a hank! Yay, I've niddy noddied my first fibers into a hank that I'll cherish (albeit pretty funny looking). Moreover, I sense that friendships shall be forged that will hold fast through the years, intricately woven to stand the tests of time!

Check back here throughout the weekend for updates and pictures from all of the venues.
