Report from the Summit - Day 3
Our saga continues…
We find Romi’s Badge waking up far too frikin early (5:40 am!!) to a typical overcast Oregon morning. Back at the Market, yarn fumes are still strong. Joan, reading about the Romi’s Badge on her blog, comes by to say hi
(Joan bought a copper kitty pin that went beautifully with her Clapotis)
Later, Kathy from Purlescence stopped by with Baby Ellie
(Ellie was just too adorable naming all the colors in the fibers….)
Then Brianne and Jamie stopped by. Jamie had just gotten her first spinning wheel (an Ashford Traditional) and was eyeing the fiber. She gave us some great tips on where to find dinner. Thanks!!
Look who else came by, attracted to the wonderful dyed fibers….
The Tsock Tsarina herself…..(though we saw through her disguise)
Then Brenda Patipa stopped by…
(She won a pin in a Romi contest)
After lunch, Romi’s Badge stopped by the Purlescense booth to sign a Get Well Card for Alison Hyde
and then went to the Periwinkle Sheep booth, and wrapped herself around the Constance shawl (Which Alison knit out of Periwinkle Sheep yarn) to try to send Alison good healing juju.
Romi’s Badge then wandered over to Carolina Homespun to say hello to Morgaine
(Morgaine, I’m soooo sorry for the fuzzy picture….)
Then she helped Ba spin on a gorgeous 30” Schacht-Reeves cherry saxony wheel….
making sure the lanyard didn’t get in the way. (Ba wanted to take the wheel to the Royale Hare booth to spin. Morgaine didn’t think this was a good idea)
Whew…it was a long day at the market. After having dinner at the hotel, Romi’s badge decided to go back to downtown for dessert at Mother’s Bistro. Marionberry claufoti and a cup of green Jasmine tea. Yum…..
After that scrumptious dessert, Romi’s Badge had a nice hot, relaxing bath and listened to a knitting podcast before going to bed.
Stay tuned for the Final Installment of Romi’s Badge….
What will happen next?!?! While Romi is away the badge does play!
