I have finally gotten to go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival!! Every year it seemed there was some reason why I couldn't go, but this year was perfect. The weather was beautiful, and a friend's husband volunteered to drive us there. We went early on Sunday morning, so it took us only about an hour to get there. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but if you've ever been to an outdoor crafts festival, it's pretty much the same but with mainly yarn and live animals. Oh, and food, lots ... of... FOOD. Mainly of the lamb variety, which still bothers me a bit considering, but I got over it enough when I came across a lamb sausage wrapped in puff pastry and Moroccan mint tea :-)
Along the path to the fairgrounds (it was held at the Howard Co. fairgrounds), a local group did a wonderful yarn bombing.
Then, how could I not visit with the sheep!
And these sheep were pretty awesome too by local artist Liz Printz (check out her page here for other examples of her beautiful work!)
Yarn, yarn everywhere. These hanks by Sea Colors were tantalizing!
Even took home a little sheep of my own :-) The Bees Folks had yummy honey, hand lotion, and these little candle gems
Hope to make it back next year!
