Just 3 days until it's off to Maryland Sheep and Wool. Veteran MSW attendees from the Guild tell me it's about 4 1/2 hours on the bus. We stop twice to pick up riders in Hampton and Williamsburg. And then a stop at McDonald's for breakfast.

Virginia Beach Spring Market was a whopping success. More people than ever stopped by to ask about the Guild and where to take knitting lessons. I met a very talented 7 year old who already designs her own knitted hats and a 74 year old who is "tired of knitting bulky cables. I want to learn how to do that color knitting".

Another event that The Tidewater Knitting Guild of Virginia will be participating in will be held May 10th. The Olde Towne History Trail Tour in Olde Town Portsmouth. Portsmouth is "home" for me. My fathers family for as far back as we can document has lived there. I grew up there. I graduated from the same school as my great grandmother, grandmother, and father. Okay, back to today.....It will be a fun day of historic tours, guilds, re-enactments and the Gosport Arts Festival.

As for knitting....the Cabled headband is completed, the tails on the Dale are neatly hidden, and Valerie & Friend Bonnet has been started.
