"The coming, the going, the to-ing, the fro-ing.......it's all just too much."
The fleece sale had around 80 entries!
The Skein and Garment entries were outstanding! Anyone failing to be inspired needs to check their pulse.
More about this pattern soon.
Over $1,000 in cash and prizes were awarded and spread over a huge assortment of categories aimed at beginners, experts and the creatively inspired. The festival accepts and returns mail-in entries so start planning now to enter next year!
The vendor booths were awash with yarn....
Spinning fiber and sundries (this is our booth)....
And finished goods like these felted vessels, created by the genius at Fat Yellow Dog Farm.
It was great to unwind after the weekend by walking Holly without a clock ticking in my head. We saw a few monarch caterpillars, although not like last year. I did see several adults flying around which was nice.
The wild asters were in perfect bloom and I thought they were every bit as nice as some cultivated ones I've seen at garden centers.
The sheep enjoyed fine, sunny days and were turned into the south pasture again.
Despite the summer drought the fall
I'm glad for photos - this will be hard to recall during the long cold of winter.
