From Susan and Sally — DC to Md to NYC

Filed under: Uncategorized — Both Sisters @ 5:19 pm

Susan arrived in DC today for a 5-day multi-faceted extravaganza.  Actually, it may be more like deja vu all over again!  Susan was thrilled to see flowers in bloom since spring in Minnesota has been non-existent slow in coming.  It is in the high 70’s here and absolutely gorgeous.

Tomorrow is the start of the world famous Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.  Susan has been meaning to come out for this particular weekend for several years.  It happened to hit right after Sally’s recent visit to the Twin Cities — which seems like only yesterday!  Obviously, the focus of the event is sheep and wool and everything knitting/spinning.  We will report back after the big day.  If you see us wandering around, please be sure to say “hi.”  We will be carrying our Rainey Sisters totes for identification.

Sunday, it is off to New York to see a Broadway play and visit yarn shops — something wild and crazy and out of character completely ;)!

Sally has brought out her knitting bag so let’s hope for the best.  TTFN


  1. Have a terrific time girls. I don’t think you’ll need your tote bags to be recognized.

  3. I’ll look for you at the Sheep & Wool Festival tomorrow. I go every year, without fail. It’s such fun, even if I don’t buy anything (not a likely prospect). I usually arrive at 8:00, in order to get a good parking space, and leave around 12:00 when it becomes very crowded. By that time, I’ve seen everything at least three times, and my feet are in dire need of a rest!

    It looks like Mother Nature will be smiling on us again this year — no rain. Hope you enjoy the day.

  5. I heard yesterday that you were at MS&W — I would have loved to say Hi, just to make a blogger connection! Have a great time in NY — MS&W was on my “bucket list” and NW is too….some day.

  6. It was nice to see you yesterday, however briefly. I hope you are having a wonderful time with your sister. I took my sister to MS&W and we had a great time — although it was awfully crowded!

  7. Thanks for being so gracious when I stopped you! I am such a bumbling stammering fan. The photograph was lovely–I’ll send it to you! I did not need the totebags either, though it was easier to identify you as a PAIR! Thanks for all the joy you both spread on the blog–!

  8. I kept looking — I’m so sorry I missed you. I would have loved to meet you both in person. Hope you had a wonderful time, and have a great trip to NYC.

  10. Sunday at the MS&W wasn’t all that crowded. But I worry all the good stuff was bought on Saturday. Still there was PLENTY to see on Sunday. I was last there in
    1986. Boy has it grown!

    Hope to see you next year!
