Sleepy in Seattle

  Here's what not to do.....fly clear across the country on the same day as Daylight Savings Time begins.  Kristine and I went to Seattle last week for a marketing seminar put on by Yarn Market News - and I don't know quite the word for it.
  Was it fun/interesting/intense being with 100 yarnshop owners from all over the country?  Absolutely!
  Was it restful? Nope, not a bit but the speakers were excellent, the new merchandise (books, patterns, yarns and equipment) coming out for spring is exciting and we had a great time! And it didn't even rain!!
  We walked all over the bottom end of Seattle (about the only wrong turn we didn't take would have marched us right into the water!!), took the ferry over to Bainbridge Island to see a grand little shop called Churchmouse Yarns and Teas, met our new Skacel rep (he of the much-anticipated ADDI LACE CLICKS), "Yarn crawled" through 5 totally dissimilar shops and generally kept our little red eyes open for new ideas!
  It was fun going but we're glad to be back and ready for spring!!
