Wow! It was great this year -- lots of vendors, cool sunny weather, and just a great day. I stayed about 4 hours -- that's a record for me, considering my low tolerance for crowds. It was packed! Maybe because tomorrow is Mother's Day, and supposed to be rainy ... maybe more people came out today. It was just jam-packed, especially in the barns. I had a small backpack and a big shoulder bag, but I saw people carrying wheeled trolleys. Hehee. Maybe next year.
Here I am ... arrived at 0900, and still parked waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out from the fairgrounds. You can't even see them from here! And yes, I got confused trying to find my car afterwards. A small VW Beetle just disappears in a big lot.
So, what did I buy?
"Meriboo Roving." 70-30 merino/bamboo, Frog Tree Yarns. The color is a gorgeous pine-y green. I really like merino-bamboo blends. I might spin this first.
I tried to break my typical yarn habit of red, blue, purple ... you see that I didn't! I did actually buy yarn this year, though -- last year I bought nothing but roving. And this year I bought two laceweight yarns, despite my previous disastrous attempt to knit lace. I'll give it another shot, though. I don't like to say "I can't do xxx" when I probably could if I tried harder. For years I would say "I can't learn knitting, it's too hard." Now here I am knitting all sorts of things!
Thanks for stopping by!
