I try to go every year. One year I hobbled along on a broken foot wearing that big boot, some years it's oppressingly hot, some years PH even accompanies me holding my purchases and following along behind me as I search. Each year I have a mission, something I know should be there and I need to find. Roving for my daughter or the yard art in the front of the house. Felt balls. Last year it was the French knitting spool. Each year I get an idea about something and file it away in my brain till mid August when I can go to FiberFest and look and ask. This year is was information on dyeing with indigo. I did find people to talk to and came home with information. And a skein of yarn. Just one. I want to see if this works before I invest in more yarn. My main project will be fabric but that's cotton. I wanted to see what wool would do. One plant, one animal.
Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool? Yes, sir, Yes, sir, three bags full.
Wool on the hoof. Isn't this gorgeous?
Wool off the hoof
This will be a beautiful shawl when it's finished.
But the one I bought today was just a little one so it doesn't count, right?
Bangs must be in right now.
Yesterday when the girls were here we went to the orchard to pick peaches. It's tough picking peaches and apples because we're just getting into the fun of it when the basket is full.
