I had such a nice time at this festival. The vendors were great and I came home with some lovely yarn 50% wool 50% silk from Briar Rose, a Sam the Ram kit from Blackberry Ridge, the Red Palm Bohus Hat kit from Kimmet Croft Fibers, a few patterns, and the Scary Doll knitting book.
It was 92 degrees and humid but we ventured out into the sun to watch a bit of the dog and whistle competition and some sheep shearing; I noticed that the sheep were wearing "coats" after they were sheared even though it was bloody hot out :??
The food was great, what other festival has ice cold milk to go with the brownie or pie you ate for dessert? I love wool and sheep but I just couldn't pull it together to eat a lamb hotdog or lamb burger much less attend the cooking with lamb show.
I heard that this festival wasn't as big as the one in MI but I really enjoyed it and it was only a 2 hour drive from Chicagoland.
