On Saturday, I was at the Endless Mountain Fiber Festival and it was nice to see more vendors than last year when we had record flooding that damaged roads and towns. This year it seemed to have more spinning fiber than hanks of wool to knit. But maybe that was just me. I really was hoping to find some hand crafted buttons and I did not find any that caught my fancy.
I loved being with my knitting friends and perusing the displays. It was also nice to see knitters wearing their hand knits proudly. Sadly I did not. I was afraid I would get too hot (not fun).
These two little fellas were moaning the entire time because they were stressed out by the people visiting. I apologized to them and then snapped a photo. May they forgive me.
I would buy a wheel only to decorate my home. Would you believe I still have no interest in spinning? I know! Surprise surprise. But my gram always said "never say never". So there is the slightest of chances I might change my mind.
While walking around you cannot help but feel the fiber as you drift past. Isn't it fluffy and lovely?
I just love how this merchant displayed all of her goods. I could stare at this all day long. I did buy a skein from her, how could I possibly resist?
What I cannot show you on this post are the scents that go with the festival-fiber, sheep, alpaca, hay, food stands (only two but still), damp wood and of course cut grass all mingled together. I loved it!!
