Last Sunday, my nephew (a sergeant in the US Army), our best friend, and my partner Scott and I drove out to the Howard County Fairgrounds for the 2010 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival (yes, it's true - it was fun to drive up and have a car load of guys tumble out at the gate!). We had a blast. This year I went with a shopping list with some very specific things in mind - but even with that, it was a little overwhelming! Had a great time talking with Kevin Hansen of HansenCrafts about his miniSpinner (I want one - and Bill, he remembered you and says Hi back!) and got the wool, silk, and alpaca that I was looking for, and the Wensleydale fleece I wasn't looking for but had to get (LOVE Wensleydale). Here are a few pics from the day.
