Yarn, fiber, food, patterns, yarn, sheep, needles, books, alpaca, yarn, great people, buttons, great weather, yarn!
I have been to a few yarn shops, but have never felt overwhelmed by choices until I pilgrimaged to the Finger Lakes Fiber Festival in Hemlock, NY.
WOW! I know from having read many accounts from other bloggers that this fiber fest is small in comparison to the biggies like Rhinebeck and Maryland but one day was not enough to take in every vendor, demonstration, or exhibit.
I thought we had a system all planned out: We should first visit all the outdoor vendors in case of rain, next: hit all the buildings carefully stopping at each booth, but it was just too easy to get sidetracked!
Mom and I had a blast! We met so many great people and renewed aquaintencences from local farms.
If you go, plan to spend the whole day or better yet the whole weekend, I wish I had. Mom and I couldn’t decide what to eat so we shared the Artichoke French, Beans ‘n Greens and Artichoke Freda. We were not disappointed,
I did not think this would be a Monkey field trip but I did see a few other Monkeys. Most were non-plussed and a little bored but I know the Crafter Monkey is planning to come next year.
There’s so much to share, I think I’ll have to continue on in another post….
