Ok, talk about the classic differences between men and women! Angela and Astrid are two ladies who sell our needles in Germany. They agreed to come and help us in the booth during the show. The arrived on Wednesday night and we got together to plan for Thursday. The show would be opening at 9:00. The women wanted to leave for the show at 8:15, the men wanted to leave at 8:45! Thankfully Ashok couldn't take all of us in one trip so the women left when they wanted and the men dragged along later.
Bob was convinced that we wouldn't see many people before 10:00. Well, here is an example of what our booth looked like just before 9:00 as we waited for the starting bell.
Then at 9:10!
And, they kept coming!
I taught a class in the afternoon for knitting two socks at the same time on one long circular needle. It went pretty well given that Angela had to translate everything for me.
We were all on our feet all day long. Ashok kept bringing us cups of coffee to keep up our energy. It was so wonderful to see knitters enjoying the needles!
By the end of the day we were all more than ready for some Indian food and a good night's sleep!
