I went to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this year, again. It's becoming a bit of a tradition with my SIL and myself.
The weather was PERFECT. Last year, it was so hot and dusty. This year, it had rained, so all the dust and pollen were settled down, it was sunny, and it was perfectly temperate.
There were animals...EVERYWHERE. It was wonderful, and although an odor of feces permeated the air, it was of the non-meat eating kind and just reminded me of a farm (good thing).
I also got some yarn-ee goodness, of course. I didn't get as much this year. My stash is seriously out of control. You can see of my overwhelming stash, here.
Here are my purchases:
Love them all!
I also got a few little pieces of jewelry. One is a needle gauge that looks like a very small artists palette. It's a small metal "pendant" (for lack of a better term). The other item I purchased was a pair of earrings. They are two small "recycled" crochet hook tops. If I can find the Etsy seller, I will post that here later.
In conclusion...if you've never been and are vacillating about going....GO! You will seriously enjoy it. Also, no one looks at you funny because you're buying yarn, crafting, or spinning...
