Wow! This was my first year at Maryland Sheep and wool and I think wow pretty much sums it up.
I flew in early to spend some time with Erin. She took me to visit some stunning yarn shops and then we got to work! Mama E decided to have a party at her studio on Friday night before the festivities began and we had a blast.
There were lots of people, it was so nice to be surrounded by people that are actually interested when you talk about yarn.
This is our hostess mid party!
The next few days just flew by!
I met up with old friend and made new friends too
This is my sweet friend Carissa, Steph and Erin. Amazingly wonderful girls. I also met Jody and Sarah for the first time in person and it was like we had known each other for years! I count myself so lucky to know all of these ladies, they are just amazing people.
I also watched a sheep shearing. I was floored to watch an animal give up their coat and was so tempted to buy a fleece. Sometimes I forget where the wool comes from that I enjoy so much…so thank you to all the sheep that provide us with our wool!
I bet that he is much cooler now!
The festival was a ton of fun, I enjoyed every second of it. The cloverhill booth was carrying my hand dyed yarns and the response was incredible. Thank you all so much! If you plan on going to the festival next year make sure to check them out, they have a lot of amazing hand dyers all in one place!
Now that I am back to reality, I am packing up all of your birthday orders and hope to have them all out by friday, thank you so much!
I have been knitting A LOT so look for a WIP post soon!
