Maryland Sheep & Wool 2014

Seriously been awhile...again.

This past weekend was the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.  Otherwise known as my yearly yarn buying extravaganza.  :)

I bought way way too much again.  I had high hopes of not getting a ton but that flew out the window as soon as I stepped foot in Miss Babs booth.

Here is my haul from the weekend

The top two are my haul from Miss Babs, then Verdant Gryphon & I FINALLY found some Wollmeise!  I couldn't believe it when I saw the sign.   I was bummed last year when I found out it was there the day after I was there.   I had no clue they'd be there this year, apparently it was someone's stash from an estate sale.  Let me say, I'd have loved to have whoever it was stash.  OMG. I couldn't imagine having that much yarn let alone that much Wollmeise!

My fiber from Loop.  My original intentions were to buy mostly fiber this year in order to make myself use my wheel I bought at a previous sheep & wool.  That didn't work out so well.

Finally two paintboxes from Fiber Optic.  The picture doesn't do these colors justice.  Just wow.
