I wrote a post about the Black Sheep Festival last week, attached a picture and before I could post it, it was swallowed up by the cyber demons! So here is a shorter version now that I am calmer.
I’m always afraid to start buying yarn, especially at a fiber fair as there is so much that looks yummy and like it wants to come home with me.

I also talk myself out of buying this particular skein because their might be something a little better at the next stall.
