Saturday Amy and I went to the annual MD Sheep and Wool Festival! It's the larest Fiber festival in the country.
I had a gyro, fresh squeezed lemonade, and half a giant eclair!
I'm always so overwhelmed when I go to this...Just The Tess Yarns booth blows my mind!
Now I'm really getting excited to buy a spinning wheel. I think I might take a class first though. I did buy a good book about it at the fair though, and I'm going to try to go to the spinners meetings more often, now that I have evenings off.
I seem to have issues buying yarn that doesn't scream out what it wants to be, so I only bought one skein (everything I like seems to be expensive anyway). But fiber isn't a problem as it always just screams YARN! Can't argue with that :P
Alpacas! Aren't they cute!!??
And here's what I bought!
Turquoise silk from Maine
Mongolian Baby Yak down (reminds me of chocolate cake!) I also got some baby camel, not pictured.
Lovely green and orange Merino Silk roving
Cormo undyed roving, and EBONY knitting needles
and some Cormo/Alpaca blend
and last but not least, two balls of yellow/orange thick n thin novely yarn that ties together my two balls of merino/silk/angora handspun :)
