Vermont Sheep & Wool Festival

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let folks know that the Vermont Sheep & Wool Festival is scheduled for October 1 and 2 at the Champlain Valley Exposition Center in Essex Junction, VT.  Admission is $5 (what a deal!).  The flyer says over 60 vendors with everything from yarn, fleece, spinning, meat and cheese (ok, it's creepy to think of eating the poor animal that gives us beautiful yarn).  More info at www.vermontsheep.org and click on the Festival button on the left.  I've never been to this Fest as I'm new to Vermont but anything with yarn has to be fun.  Plus, there's shearing demonstrations and sheepdog herding.

New York Knitting Cruise

Hello everyone!

Is anyone else going on the knitting cruise in New York sponsored by The Point Cafe? It seems like it would be a great opportunity to meet and put a face with an online identity.... 

I will be there with my wonderful friend, Robin.

Also, I spent the weekend at the Garden State Sheep and Fiber Festival and accidentally added a new obsession... spinning.... Had a great time and learned a lot - all the information and hands on experience really enhances my knitting experience.
