It was lovely this past Sunday and my family and I enjoyed the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival quite a bit. I love Sundays as they are less hectic than a Saturday visit plus you get to see the Sheep to Shawl contest and auction.
I really enjoyed the sheep…
Love this face!
I also loved all the yarn bombing! The knitters were busy!!
My purchases were things that I have had my eyes on for the last few years. One is a beautiful water colors of a ewe and it’s baby. It is titled, “Mom, I am tired”. I forgot to take a photo because I tucked it safely away. There is a lovely woodworker there and I purchased a beautiful darning egg. My other purchase was a replacement of a Signature Needle that I let someone borrow and sadly can’t remember who, but it has yet to show up and basically it’s my bad and problem solved.
Another exciting thing was that I got to meet 2 of my Twitter friends!! This is Maureen on the left and Ginger on the right. I am the one in the middle. They are both as lovely as they are on Twitter. Maureen is from Canada and came just for Sheep and Wool. Now that’s a committed knitter!! Ginger hails from Maryland and she is a pistol!!
I had the ribbon chips because you just have too!
I am posting this on the fly as it is knit night and I am looking forward to seeing my friends.
P.S. I started the picot bind offf of my shawl but had a moment of doubt and stopped. I checked with the powers that be and I was right, so onward I go.
