Tales of wool and sheep. September 10, 2010

It has been about two years since I’ve been to a fiber festival. I had forgotten how intoxicating it can be. Thankfully, I was by myself today when I ventured 45 minutes away to the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in Jefferson, Wis, because I took a lot of funny photos and sniffed a lot of yarn. Apologies for the photo-laden post!

I also dropped  off two Yarn Play Café bags for the Silent Auction to benefit the Midwest Shetland Sheep Breeders Association. A fiber festival day is a great day for sure.

Oh, I really want to get up there sometime. This weekend is super busy…maybe next year. Thanks for sharing the photos. I also have a hank of Grandma’s Blessing that has been marinating for a couple of years. Can’t wait to see what you do with yours!
