Almost Here! Maryland Sheep & Wool Fest
This is my studio floor, covered in yarn, ready to be skeined. I've dyed over 100 lbs. this week. Luckily it was hot and dry the beginning of the week so the yarn dried almost immediately. But now it's raining so I have yarn EVERYWHERE in my house, on all the furniture, on the radiators, on the beds. I've been overtaken with wool! Following are pics of just some of stuff I'll be taking to S&W. I have a new space outside. As you enter the festival, take a left and I'm the third one down on the left (SO5 in the booklet). I'll have skads of yarn on sale!!!!
This is how it looked in my side field when it was sunny.
Sock Hop yarn, ready to go to market!
Mohair roving in all the colors of the rainbow.
Mohair in Carnival colorway.
Fairy Batts, a combo of wool, mohair, Angelina glitz, bamboo, soy.
I'll have plenty of Slubby yarn
New pattern, Cable and Squares Pullover made with Peace Fleece yarn
'Going to the Barn' Handwarmers and Hat, made with my own sheep's wool yarn.
One of my 'Lambscapes'. It's needle felted, then wet felted. I'll be teaching a class on this in the near future.
A brooch for your favorite knitted piece.
My hand made fused glass buttons.
Hopefully I'll see you there. Stop on by for a little free something.
