A few pics from the fiber fest I attended today. Didn't get a whole lot purchased with 2 kids in tow, but it was fun nonetheless. The yarn is 100% wool I got at $1/oz. I'm thinking hat, scarves for the dark blue and Fetching w/scarf for my mom with the lime green. Very pretty stitch markers. Also have got to get some alpaca--it is so soft!!

Saw lots of spinning wheels, roving and the like, even saw silk worms and my son touched one (eew!)

Hi Cate--nice to meet ya! Yep, it was Hemlock! Next year I'm definitely going without children (they were bored after the first hour). I just could not bring myself to touch that silkworm--reminded me of a big ol' tomato worm. Did ya get anything there?

I was there! My DD loved it. She was excited about the animals. Didn't buy anything. Stupid checking account, why can't it spontaneously replenish? :grrr:

I got this sock yarn, which took me 45 minutes to wind into a softball sized ball.
