Still Basking in the Joy that was Sheep and Wool

Yes.  I know it’s officially Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival,  but all you need to say in the tri-state area is Sheep and Wool and wool people know.  I didn’t take any pictures this year, but I took one of my loot when I got back to Reisterstown.  And, of course, after I got home I realized I noticed I didn’t include everything.  The Berroco books will have to wait.

I was happy to find the Japanese book that Gayle raved about, but there weren’t any pattern books to speak of.  I found a couple of stores on-line that have several.  Now, I must decide which ones.  The buttons are from Creatively Dyed Yarns.  And, you know what?  I didn’t buy any yarn from them this year.  This could be due to the fact that I had already bought yarn from three other stalls.  I am so glad that Signature Needle Arts is getting down to the smaller sizes in circulars.  I got a 3 and a 4 and I am hoping that 2 will be coming out soon.  I picked up a neat little needle case.  The fabric is pretty thin.  And, I can’t help but wonder how long it will last.  But, then I thought I could easily make another with sturdier fabric. I’ve spent as much on patterns. 

The little cat was for my son.  I got cards from the two women who make the animals.  They do special orders and I think my daughter would a little Bo like her Maine Coon.
