maryland sheep and wool 2017

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Hey friends!  So much fun to read your thoughts and preferences concerning the Magic Loop Method.  I really appreciate it.  I definitely am going to continue to do my best on the two at a time.  If things don't go well, I'll try Magic Loop one at a time.  And, if I decide to throw in the towel on my Magic journey, I'll be sure to share that with you! ;)
Last Sunday morning, I loaded the car and hit the road for Maryland Sheep and Wool.  I met my husband there as he was in D.C. for business.  What a treat to share my love of sheep and wool with my man.  AND,  to see his interest in something he knows little about.
This is the hippie sheep I was photographing while Steve was photographing me on Instagram.  What a beauty!  I just love the dreads.  You better believe I was wearing my Hanne Falkenberg.
We wove our way through most of the exhibits.  Filled with incredible sheep and all things related to our love of this craft.   It's a bit overwhelming to tell you the truth.  Wool everywhere.  We purchased two skeins of yarn.  Yep, only two.  It's hard to believe, but I didn't really have a plan and my head was spinning.
Leaving the fairgrounds, I couldn't help but smile at this shuttle.  To be surrounded by so many like minded people.  It really just makes my heart happy.

  2. I went last year for the first time and I couldn't believe how big the crowds were. It was totally overwhelming as I had never seen so many people in one place at one time. I only managed to come away with one fleece and that took me several hours in line to get. It was raining too. I can only imagine how big the crowds would have been on a sunny day.

  4. I haven't been to Maryland, but I've been to Rhinebeck, and I feel the same way about it. "To be surrounded by so many like minded people." Exactly!
