    Thank You, Red! Surrounded by thousands of skeins of hand dyed yarns, in colors and combos to dream of, I shouldn't have been surprised by people with an eye to noticing color. Might have also been because I was the ONLY one wearing pearls. Everyone else was wearing their hand knit shawls, scarves, woven pieces ... my own shawl, finished in the wee hours, was in a bag to show it's yarn dyers, but unwearable because I didn't have time to weave in the loose ends and block the shawl ... so the pearls were the understudy lol ... and they were up to the job.

    Internet was wonky last night, and I could only see on my phone, so I'm playing "catch up".

    Katbran, yes, I fell in love with the spring flower petal colors; Thanks!

    Bailey 1856, I've been just dreaming of an ombre strand ... any ombres LOL ... so I was thrilled to get these. Thank You

    Gem Geek, I bet you weren't surprised by the new owner It was pretty clear I was in love with these, pursuing them shamelessly lol. Doubled is the way I like them best; shows off the shading the best, I think. Thank you so much!

    Newberry; these pearls shouted at me from across the sea like a mermaid's siren call ... I love them.

    Pearly-Whites; it was such a fun adventure to figure out how to adopt these pearly treasures; I'm delighted with them. Many thanks

    SunSeeker, Thank you; that's sweet! Finally ombre pearls ... I've regretted giving up an ombre strand of Tahitians a while back in favor of another strand. I still think of that strand "Why, oh why did I do that???", although I think it lives with one of our PG friends now. So when this ombre chance came up, I was determined ...!

    Thank you all so much

    I LOVE the pearls, Lugana ... the pearls were lovely to begin with, but it's the way you put them together, with the eye of an artist, that stole my heart! I turn them a different way each time I wear them, so I can see all the colors, like a bouquet of flowers My job description for many years involved a lot of projects, all of which boiled down to "Go figure out how to get this done" lol ... came in handy, although I admit the postal services make me nervous All in, a delightful experience!!!

    Cathy: ". . . Surrounded by thousands of skeins of hand dyed fibers and yarns, and the artists who create the glorious colors and use them. . ."

    That sounds like heaven to me. Yarn and pearls. A weaver's paradise.

    It was, BWeaves! Even if I was the only pearl representative lol ... the colors on those yarns made me dizzy. While there were spinning wheels, a loom or 3, some raw wool etc., the focus was more on knitting etc, finished yarns as it was a small show, close to me. Still, for a color junkie like me, delirious. I have been lobbying to go to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival later this spring; similar but MUCH bigger ... not that I NEED more yarn ... or pearls LOL.

    I've been dyeing (pun intended) to go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival for years. Greg retires in June, and then our travel opportunities open up to any time of year. We won't be locked into his school year anymore.
