Countdown to MD Sheep and Wool!!

Can you feel it? It's in the air. The sweet smells of spring are upon us, the leaves are returning to the trees, the flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer. That all points to only one thing.... MD Sheep and Wool is coming! In fact it's only 27 days away!

I'm especially excited this year because I'm helping out at the Cloverhill Yarn Shop booth! Come by and say hey! I'll be the one fondling all the luscious yarn and fiber... well - that may not help distingiush me too much... hehe!
Here's a photo to help you out...


My pal Sarah and I started a new blog to help countdown to the day. Go check it out here:

Add it to your blog reader and check back every day! Why?

So go check out the goods and save your pennies! This year's Festival is sure to be great. I'm looking forward to the Ravelry meetup too! I met a ton of great people last year and I'm sure this year will be no different.

One thing I hope to buy this year... enough roving/fiber to spin and knit a sweater!

What's on your must have list?

must have - ORANGE SOCK YARN!!!! It will be the main thing I will be looking for....Along with yarn for mittens and other little things, and maybe roving so my sister can spin some nice yarn!
