And customers trying out new Spinning Wheels.
Bags of raw fleece.
and Tables of dyed fleece.
Boat loads of yarn And Orbs of Fluff.
Oil painted Sheep "Sheep Incognito" painted by Connie Tögel.
Silk Rovingand Angora Roving
Walls and walls and walls of hand painted yarn
And rolls of batted roving.
There were Knitted Alpaca throws and Mini Alpacas and Felted Alpaca toys
Kids (SEVEN kids in here family!) hawking bunnies
Beautiful Wet Felted Flowers
And Gorgeous Mitered Squares Jackets
Knitted Granny Square Wraps,
Amazing Knitted Sweaters
and Entralock Berets.
So what followed me home? This….

Although I've only been blogging for a very short time, it has really opened up a whole other world for me, as I'm sure it has for a lot of people. It helps keep us in touch with friends and family. It helps build a whole new community where we can meet new friends and network our interests and expand our knowledge and visions of what we can accomplish or want to try. And it's nice to have a place where I can just express myself about anything and everything. Or just vent. Now I need to pass this award on to eight other blogs that are deserving of this award. But first a HUGE shout out to the woman that peaked my interest in blogging and started this whole crazy ball of yarn unraveling; Thank you Holly! You can visit her over at Knit with Snot for You.
So now I'm passing it on to these 8 great bloggers and each of these recipients should extend the friendship by passing it on to eight others. And now the next winners are;
Twenty Four at Heart
A bit Squirrelly
It's like I'm ...Magic
Pass on the LOVE Girls. Passon the LOVE!
