2011 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Last weekend my husband and I took a trip to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.  We had a fabulous time walking though the sheep barns, checking out the yarn vendors and getting to see a bit of the Sheep to Shawl contest.  There was music playing in the main vendor building as well as outside. We had some time in the evenings to visit with friends we haven't seen since last year and met some new friends too.

The Princess and Queen of Wool.  I think this would be the best title to have. Ever.

A group of youths at the Sheep to Shawl Contest.  They were really well organized and I loved the color coordination of their warp on the loom and their t shirts.

This group was very well prepared with a wagon for the new wheel they came away from the auction with. 

This is the t shirt line.  I preorderd mine since I didn't want to waste time standing in line.  It was totally worth paying shipping for!

This sheep had triplets.

This is the Sanguine Gryphon booth.  It was their first year at the festival and I swear it was this crowded each time we went by.  My very cool and most awesome husband stood in line here for me and sent me off to check out the other booths.  He rocks :)
