What a great weekend! The weather was simply perfect for a fiber festival. If you've read Dee's Blog you know that we headed across the river to NJ on Saturday for the NJ Sheep & Fiber Festival. There were sheep:
Love these black faced sheep. And look at the spotted one in the back! Then there were those in coats:
LOL - Already groomed and ready to show - no chance of rolling in muck for this one.
Attendance at the Festival was good. We did run into Bridget and The Tim and we saw Kristy Glass - though she did not see us and I'm not sure why she didn't seek us out for an interview - lol. I was wearing hand knit socks.....It seemed a bit more crowded to me this year, but also fewer vendors. Nevertheless, I managed to add to the stash:
I forget the name of the color on the left, but the one on the right is called Barn Owl. Both are just so pretty. And then I managed to get into a bit of a bag frenzy....
This one is heavy - made out of woven jute and will be perfect to house a BIG sweater project or a blanket project. And then there was also this one...
I'm a sucker for gorgeous upholstery fabric. This bag is perfect for a project or two while traveling.
Dee and I eventually left and drove into Lambertville to grab some lunch. Walking through town we spotted this:
Not sure who is responsible for this as there are no local yarn shops. We had a delicious lunch at Full Moon and then made our way to a coffee shop
(yes, that's a cookie on the table...and some yarn). The green yarn has since been frogged and is in time out for an indefinite period of time.....
There were some guardians at the coffee shop watching us:
These were up high on a ledge near the ceiling. Very cool.
All in all, a wonderful day. Now it's back to work. This week promises to be busy. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
