This weekend is the Taos Wool Festival. It is a small festival - but packed with great booths and lovely people (I even met some Santa Fe knitters, a knitter/spinner/weaver who lives 1 block from me, and some new ABQ friends).
Here is Mike and Ritch helping me out at the festival. They stood outside of the tents with a large backpack and carried my loot as I walked around. It was very nice to have such good help!
They had all kinds of live stock - mini sheep, alpacas, shearing demos. It was neat to see them all there!
My purchases. I didn't go crazy. I got a pound of wonderful mint chocolate chip merino, I got some angora, a few skeins of yarn, a mixed bag of bright roving, and some other fibers .... way too much fun!
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
