Last weekend, we headed out to the Howard County fairgrounds for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Hurrah!
The day got off to a wonderful start as we walked into the festival and my mom was stopped for the first of many questions and compliments on her wonderful shawl.
Not long after, we wandered by the pavilion of knit and crochet contest winners and were delighted to find that my friend Lisa Marie had won not one, but two, ribbons -- one for her adorable Wheat Basket Beanie:
So basically, I had the pleasure of attending the festival with two celebrities. I think the sheep knew they were in the presence of greatness.
We spent most of the day winding through stalls admiring the abundance of beautiful yarn:
When we were totally oversaturated, we took a break to sample sheep and goat cheese:
So much fun. Of course, I also found some amazing yarn, which you'll see in projects posted soon, because I can't wait to start knitting!
