I've already got my shopping list ready for the MD Sheep and Wool Fest.

I'm going to get needle felting supplies!!!!!!!!! I've got good bits of yarn, and I want to embelish the FT clogs that I'll knit someday..and thought it'd be a good place to go to get that!!!

Also....I want to get some good chunky cotton yarn that I'll be able to dye with my dh's walnut husks that he'll get this fall. And then make a BIG LONG sweater!!!

Any suggestions on the dying with the naturalness of it all? I've never dyed anything before, but I'd LOVE to try it.

My knitting group is going to attend on Saturday. I recently took up knitting again after being an avid quilter for more than 10 years. This wil be my first time attending the festival.

We're from Northern Va.

And getting a hotel room in between. Not because its so far away...because I need a vacation!!!!

I want to go to this sooo bad! We went to the Fall Fiber Festival at Montpelier and had a great time (even though it was horribly rainy and cold, therefore muddy and gross :teehee: ) I think that dh is afraid to go to another one with me. What weekend is it exactly?

Cinnybuns! I'm sure someone will say hello and let you trail alongside for awhile... have a cup of hot chocolate together or something! If I go, I will. I hadn't thought about going to this because I ususally go to Rhinebeck in October, but you know, maybe I should do a LITTLE reeeee thinking! :?? :teehee:
