Maryland Sheep and Wool. The biggest sheep and wool festival in the country. (Though I hear Rhinebeck is moving up fast). I go every year. USUALLY I get there with my friend Lynette before they even open and we are DONE by 1.
This year Lynette had a family obligation so I tagged along with another friend Linda. We didn't arrive till 11:30.
The parking doesn't look so bad does it??
Except that was the OVERFLOW because of
It was CRAZY crowded. By the time we got through to the gate and I went off on my own it was just too tough to really shop. So I visited my favorite vendors especially Flying Fibers.
Turns out I was in a Wensleydale mood! Picked up some Jacob and a bit of weaving cotton.
Briefly met up with a gang from Ravelry's Juniper Moon Farm
(Where I had an attack of shyness, my friends forget that I start that way and struggle to be comfortable with a new bunch)
Was relieved to hang a bit with my old Fredericksburg Spinners and Weavers Guild buddies.
Ribbon fries and lemonade and we were out of there.
From now on it's the morning for me. The afternoon is for everyone else!
