Maryland Sheep and Wool goodies

I had a BLAST yesterday at the sheep and wool festival. I didn't actually get much for myself, but I did a great job of enabling a friend into a new Sonata and two pounds of yummy wool. Made me feel like I bought a lot more. I wanted to say thank you again to Misty Mountain Fibers in Gettysburg for helping me to successfully avert a huge catastrophe and making me a very happy girl. Your thoughtfulness will never be forgotten! I will definitely be back for more merino! I was also able to find the most amazing set of Howard hand cards (120 psi) and some very yummy painted merino roving and just had a ball.

I promise from now on, I will have many more pix up... I have finally broken down and bought a digital camera, camera dock, and memory card! I hope this will last me a good 5 or 6 years... with that in mind, does anyone want a cheap, barely used Canon Sure Shot 105 zoom S 35mm camera ? make an offer!!! I think I might have put two rolls of film through it and just realized I couldn't afford the film habit anymore. It has pretty much been sitting since then, waiting for a loving home. E-mail me if interested!

Also, I have news on the naming of the wheel. Thank you to all who submitted ideas! After much thought and trying out of names, I have decided on Caroline, after my best friend! I couldn't think of a better way to honor her!

Hope we get to see what you bought soon! From the pics I've seen in Blogland, seems like everyone had a great time.

What is better than going to the Maryland fiber fest? Going with a friend and helping her pick out a wheel!!!! I can only dream. Maybe next year. And I can't wait to see the pictures of your lovely roving and yarn.

It was the Maryland Sheep and Wool Fest. Utterly fabulous and definitely worth the trip for you... people from all over the country gather to sell their wares, and people from all over the world come to buy.. I have been told it is the largest in the country, if you can imagine that!
