Yarn Whore!

That’s the only way I can describe the way I felt this weekend at my first fiber festival, the Southeastern Animal and Fiber Festival It was sensory overload as I walked through the huge arena full of rainbows of yarn, roving, fleece, and knitted garments.  I had to touch everything and heard others moan and groan just like I did as I rubbed the fiber on my face.I wish I could have spent all day there!!  I went Friday morning and took a quick look around at all the vendors.  Then, I took Kaia back with me on Sat. eve and we got to see a spinning and a weaving demo, visit with the angora bunnies, pet sheep and goats, and watch the llama games!  I will definitely be going back next year!

  1. Oh yes, I can totally relate to feeling like a yarn whore! :) LOL I haven’t gotten to one of the local fiber festivals yet, but a friend of mine spins and dyes fiber…she recently made an amazing sweater out of yarn she made herself! Awesome!

  2. Oh! Lucky! I’ve never been to one that big but I’m hoping next year we can go to the Fingerlakes or Maryland one :) My friend Avery was talking to the older knitting ladies who hang out at her cafe and they asked what I buy when we go to fiber festivals…she rolled her eyes and said “sheep!”. I WOULD like a black Icelandic next time around….I have a light beige Shetland now and a dark brown Jacob cross to keep her company…I can’t wait to see what their fleeces look like once they’re processed into roving. If you ever have any homeschooling questions, let us know if we can help – E was homeschooled all the way through high school as were most of his friends. Hugs, Shannon
