On Saturday Elizabeth and her husband headed to Maryland for
the annual Sheep and Wool Festival in Howard County.It was a gorgeous day and the crowd was
large, so large that parking was
several fields and 2 shuttle bus rides away!This show is always worth going to and on this beautiful day it
was a nice drive and an enjoyable afternoon.
The fence and the trees on the lane up to the entrance had
been yarn bombed by knitters and crocheters.
At this festival you can buy anything sheep and lamb related that
you could possibly think of from food products, to farm implements, to anything
and everything having to do with products made from their fleece.Spinners, weavers, knitters, crocheters,
felters, and sewers all have something to see and do here. The riot of color is everywhere!
You can look at all types of sheep, watch them get sheared
and see a demonstration of the skills of the herding dogs.
Occasionally something related also sneaks in like these
handmade brooms harkening back to days gone by.
Next year, put the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival on your
destination list.You will be glad you
