From Festival to Festival

This year's Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival was quite a different experience for me.
The big news was not only the yummy new fibers and precious animals, but da heat!!
I never thought that I would have wished for rain at a sheep and wool festival until Saturday, May 1st. The high for West Friendship, Maryland was a reported 88 degrees!!

88 degrees+hoards of wool+three hours of sleep and scant snacking=The spontaneous combustion of a spinner! My head still hurts. Oy!

This was my first time joing the Park Slope Knitting Circle on a trip. Everyone was super nice.
We even saw two great movies that I'd missed in the theater! Giggity! Organizers, you did us a wonderful service. Thanks! I could not have asked for a more convenient and pleasant trip.
I'm also grateful to the vendors at the festival. In particular, the guy at the ice cream stand who met my desperate plea for a makeshift supersized chocolate cone and fist full of money with a merciful, ''don't worry I'll take care of you''. Dude, you're the best!

Okay, Okay. Yes, despite the stifling heat in the barns, I did manage to buy a thing or two. It was the best that I could do under the circumstances ya see...

Imagine what that pile would look like if I weren't shopping in slow motion? A little slide show is over on the Flickr page. Enjoy!

I'm so glad you had a good time! For slow motion shopping you sure did a great job and you got some really beautiful stuff.

OK, you wait here while I go shop on your page.
