The Maker Faire, It's the Maker Faire! A Contest!

Yesterday was Day 1 of the Maker's Faire. Today, day 2, come and visit! It is very, very fun. Very inspirational to see so many people come together to create and make unimaginable (to me) robots, contraptions, rockets, music, fire, bikes, and yarn (of course). Today, I hope to walk around alittle bit more and take photos. Yesterday, I was so overwhelmed with the sights and sounds, I could not really focus. With the one exception, I saw a werewolf! I had this funny urge to hug it?! Maybe a twisted memory of my childhood and Disney World. If I see him / her today, I will try to take a photo for you.


Here is our booth in the mid day rush. Let's play a teensy tiny game called "who can you spot?" Let me know if you recognize anyone in this photo. You will have until Wednesday at midnight (PST) to submit your answer to this blog post. I will draw a person, and you will receive a 2oz bundle of the lovely baby camel/silk tussah fiber.

Well, I better get ready to go. If you are coming to the Maker's Faire. We are in the Bizarre Bazaar building. Hope to see you soon!

The only one in focus is Stephanie Pearl, from the left side. She looks so young in person.

I actually walked up behind her during the book signing (I didn't see her at first through the gate) and screamed to a friend "check out all the wool I got!", just after leaving your booth. Polwarth locks heavenly!l

OH, I wish I could have been there - and your yarn looks wonderful!
But the Harlot led me here, and tis the Harlot herself I see.

That's the Yarn Harlot - not to cast aspersions on any of the others in the picture.

I'm jealous of you both.

I can see Stephanie Pearl McPhee, the Yarn Harlot. I found your blog after checking out your store site. Very nice. I am enjoying reading it.

Anonymous said...

I do believe that is the Yarn Harlot!

Jessica K. said...

Ooh, I know this one! I see the Yarn Harlot. I love that she looks so normal. I like that in the knitting world, our celebrities are quite average looking (and that's a complement, Stephanie, if you're reading this.)

dsoule50 said...

What fun! Attending such a fun day is on my to-do-list though controling myself with all the fiber might be a trick. Center-right is Stephanie Pearl-McPhee!
