I *heart* MD Sheep and Wool

SO.Much.Fun.
Amanda and I went on Sunday this year. We arrived at the fair ground ay 8:15 am and lined up to buy festival swag. This is the line at 8:30am. Seriously.

Llama with a poodle cut.
"We Are Not Amused."
Random booth with pretty colors... (lots of things were cleared out by Sunday)
Alpacas! Cute!
Misty Mountain Farm tent... one of my favorite. I got 1 lb of Shetland roving here for only $18 a lb. I just keep sticking my nose in the bag. This is the booth I "enabled" a spinner. A lovley woman was asking me about the rovings and mentioned she "always wanted to learn". I pointed her to the spindles, we found a clear patch and commenced drop spindle lessons. Only and Sheep & Wool.I got another great Schachnt 2.5 oz apindle and this UBER Cool "hounds" spindle 1.5 oz out of polymer clay by "Hala"
Here is the rest....sorry for the crapy picture. I have bad picture mo-jo this week... from left to right:
1 lb brown shetland, 4oz BFL in Crayon Box by Gale's Art, 4 oz of merino (can't find the vendor info) and a cute little barrell bag. Oh and a beautiful ebony crochet hook plus my Sheep & Wool baseball cap, didn't make it into the picture.I went with a budget and stuck to it. Good for me! Bad that I STILL have stuff in stash from last years festival- doh.
I did try out a "ladybug" spinning wheel at the Mannings booth. Pretty sweet. Maybe next year..... who's coming with?

I FINALLY finished spinning the Woodland Nymph yarn- hopefully a pic tomorrow. Plus the first "Time of the Month" sock is done and the 2nd cast on. Progress pics later as always

Ooooh, I'm so happy you got to go, and so jealous, too! :0) Someday, I'll have to come and join you - wouldn't that be a blast? Thanks for all the pictures!

Love the llama haircuts!

I've been eyeing Ladybugs; what did you think of it? I haven't tried one yet and won't be buying for a while, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Yay for blogging especially since a) I apparently don't anymore and b) I forgot my camera. My haul is embarassing next to yours, especially since I'm supposed to be DEstashing!

I bet all the sellers were happy to see such a crowd of people! Good for the economy for sure. ;) Enjoy your goodies!

Oh wow! I'm so sorry I missed it. NEXT YEAR! Without fail. It looks awesome. There is something really twisted about that poodle-cut llama.

P.S. I mentioned in my recent post that you are going to MC a contest. Thanks again. Love you!

I really wanted to sit at a ladybug, but I was afraid that I'd either get run over by the hordes or break it. It looks like a fun little wheel though.
