It's obvious why the women on the left are smiling -- Stylish in Starmores are Susan (Katy's mom), Margene, and Katy (Susan's daughter) -- I'll tell you, just watching the parade of stunning handknits would have made for a mighty fine festival. But the women on the right, why are they smiling so big? They're happy, wearing their lovely knits, for sure -- Ann in her Merkin and Theresa in Rogue, Cara wearing Seraphim and knee-highs -- but those smiles are so BIG! ; ) Must be that orange-clad fella in the non-knit -- he made for a memorable exit, didn't he ladies? Thank goodness I had a camera
to hide behind!
I'm sorry that I don't have time for linking today. And really, I'm stealing time to post just these few pictures and bang out a few words. Suffice it to say that it was like any other gathering of this type -- way too much of some things and far too little of others. Mostly, way too little time to spend with people who mattered. There are some that I barely -- or NEVER -- even saw. I'm really sad about that, but I suppose that just means "next year..."
Oh, I just had to share the rare photo of Cara's trick -- if you've seen Ann's photo album, you know that it's difficult to perform, much less catch on film! Poe doesn't even have to do tricks.
