Day trip to Hemlock Fiber Fest!

Yesterday, my daughter, her bff, Stacey and I took a road trip to Hemlock Fiber Fest!  Since it was only 1.5 hours away I'm embarrassed to say it was my first time there. I decided to travel light and not bring my camera, but I did get some phone pics for you of the highlights!

My "yarn" baby... I picked up yarn from Jill for a super secret project! 
I think the Vaya Shrug works for "pregnant" me, don't you?
A new sock machine knitter learning her machine!  I was SO intrigued by it!
No fiber festival would be complete without Artichoke French!
Mill spun singles, hand dyed and plied... a skein might have come home with me (for boot toppers!)
I REALLY wanted to bring this pretty boy home with me too!
The weekend ended with me staying up late to bind off my latest design in Nightfall!
I'll bet you want to know the winner of last weeks Mica Mitts giveaway... congrats to Margi!  Get in touch and I'll send out your yarn and beads!

    1. It is fun! Definitely going back next year (and maybe without the tweens in tow!) The yarn is Longmeadow Farm from Freedom NY, she doesn't have a website, but does have a Rav group: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/the-woolroom-at-longmeadow-farm
