The Maryland Sheep & Wool festival was this past weekend. Of course I went.

I did manage to finish knitting the Fountain Pen Shawl before the festival. I blocked it on Friday evening and left it home on Saturday. I left it at home because it was just to hot. It was in the upper 80's, it may have even reached 90 (32 Celsius).

We didn't stay as long as we probably would have if it had been a cooler. We also didn't visit all the vendors. It was just to hot.

Here's the new items!

The 4 bags of green in the back will be a sweater, eventually. I found the lace weight I was looking for. Would you believe that's the only yarn I bought? I bought absolutely no sock yarn.

I have no definate plans for any of the other fiber I got. It is not stash. It is fiber. The government says we need more fiber. Therefore, this was necessary!

I did get 2oz of really hot pink fiber for spinning and I've already spun it.

It's also already been plied -- I plied it with some white and some glow-in-the-dark thread. It will be something for S. She needs to let me know what she would like though!

Because of MDS&W, I missed the final brunch for the Guardian Angel program at church. I did finish both items in time and gave them to someone else to take.
This is the Angel Lace shawl closeup. It went to the lady who had my name.
The lady I had loves Halloween. I've been giving her various Halloween items throughout the year and for the final gift, I made the October is for Spinners scarf.
