After years of meaning to and wanting to and going to, I finally am taking the plunge into the world of blogging. It was theMaryland Sheep and Wool Festival that finally gave me the excuse to do the proper research into how to add a blog to my web site. Long story but, since I am the web master for the MD Sheep & Wool Festival and WE (the Festival Committee) wanted a blogger - Not Me! someone with experience and a very popular blogger already - I thought I'd better figure out how to use this Wiki thing before I ended up looking dumb. Where better to test it out than my own, personal web site Mount Airy Alpaca Company
So the Festival was, as always, thrilling, wonderful, exciting but also exhausting and a little stressful. Sold lot's of sweaters and yarn and stuff, took a great class by Ann Feitelson in Fair Isle Knitting and, for once, was NOT the dumbest one in the class. My snowflake pattern actually appeared AND I cut my Steek and did a 3 needle bind off which actually worked! Huh! The usual suspects were in the class with me, my friends, Roseann, (teaches knitting at Springwater Fiber in VA), Toni Minkel (teaches knitting in Mount Airy), Paula & Susan from West Virginia and also Kathy from Needles Hooks and Books in Mount Airy.
Junior Hand Spinner's contest was great. We had some amazing little spinners - see photo
- and Tom (the Cuban ball and chain) did the Friday Night Vendor dinner along with his own personal "Mini Me" our son Nick. Don't they look large and in charge?
Enough Drivel, have to see if this thing uploads. Top Photos: Finn Sheep! (If I didn't have alpacas to take care of, I'd be snatching up some Finn Sheep - soooooo cute.)
Waiting for only one alpaca baby this spring from Cassy. Please let it be black or gray!!! Pleeeeeeeeeeze!
