Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival
This weekend was the MD Sheep and Wool Festival. I went on Saturday which is the most crowded day but also you get better selection if you have something in mind. I wanted yarn for a cardigan, DK weight. I found a beautiful wool in a lilac color, which I don't have in my closet. The caramel color alpaca was an impulse buy, the price was wonderful, and I plan to make a stole/shawl and wear it with my new glass pin.
I ate delicious lamb and got to watch some of the sheep judging. I also admired the 4-H entries and did a lot of people watching when I took breaks to rest from the hot sun.
There were more vendors that I remember from previous years. There were a lot of beautiful hand dyed yarn most of it sock weight and I'm not a sock knitter. I still have some of this yarn that I bought before and have to figure out what to make out of it other than socks.
Isn't this a great haircut?
I got a new phone and since Clio doesn't know that it has a camera I was able to take her picture. Isn't she a cutie?
My shirtdress is coming along but the garden has been occupying me so the progress has been slow.
