Tommorow at 0600 I’ll wake and head to my friend Amy’s house here in Sacramento. Then, her sweetie will drive a car full of excited, fiber crazed women to the Amtrack Depot downtown and leave us in line with a reputed 500 other fiber-crazed (I’m assuming mostly) women. Where to?
All aboard to STITCHES WEST! 900 vendors of all things yarn, a couple hours away inSanta Clara. How will I sleep tonight? (extra benadryl?) This is MORE exciting than the first day of school, people! I’ve never been on a train!
I’m using too many exclamation points!
I’ve been almost faithful to my “yarn diet,” cheating twice, both purchases less than $10 for the last three months. I have a set amount of cash in my bag. There will be unusual and beautiful things there. Pics will be posted of my treasures found.
We met up tonight for a little beer and stitching at a local pub, great place by the way, Bon Lair here in Sac. Amy shared her top-secret strategy for maximum territory coverage. Will be a LONG day. I’m planning on being pretty zonked Sunday.
It will be worth it!
