So tired. So incredibly tired. And yet, I would wake up early tomorrow and do it all over again if I could.
My friends Denise and Kathy and I drove down to Maryland early Saturday morning to attend the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. This is the second year that we have gone, and this year we were smart and decided to spend the night down there so we could come back the next day and look around some more. There is simply too much stuff to see there in one go.
Here is a brief overview of what (and who!) I saw:
Shorn sheep (who apparently need jackets):
A well-dressed Cristi:
A colourful Pam (love the Mollywobbles jacket!)
And an elusive Bezzie:
I loved meeting all of these blogging friends and I truly wished I could have spent more time with them, but I was so tired from walking around all day. And what did I buy? Well, feast your eyes on this!
Flock Bransonas sock yarn in 'Teddy':
Pucker Brush Farms superwash sock yarn:
Ellen's Half Pint Farm merino/tencel sock yarn:
Brooks Farms Solo in baby pinks:
Maple Creek Farm superwash merino/tencel sock yarn for Michelle (who couldn't come with us):
The Fibre Company's Terra mill ends - I am going to make a hat from these (and they cost me $3.70 total!!)
And more Fibre Company mill ends - the middle two are Savannah, the left one Babe and the right Organik - and there should be enough of each to make baby hats. I love this company's mill ends - they are only $1/ounce.
And for the first time I bought some non-knitting related stuff - a great blue bucket, a purple basil plant, a basil plant that doesn't seed and grows into a topiary, a lemon squash, and a patio watermelon plant:
Now I just need to get the garden plot finished. It is only about 1/3 dug...
And just so you know, I didn't forget Willow - she now is the proud owner of a Mama Llama:
