Its been said, 'a leap year is not a good year for sheep...'

A little more from my afternoon at the Shepherd's Harvest Sheep & Wool Festival on Sunday. These were just some highlights for me, keeping in mind there were three whole county-fair buildings of juried exhibits and vendors in addition to two more buildings full of sheep and llamas. Read: overwhelming and blissful all at once. I came home with a pincushion/wool roving ball of many colors and a bar of Western Juniper-flavored handmade soap and an inclination to learn the art of wool rug hooking. This could work against me--as in the guilt from not finishing all the other knitting projects piling up--or for me as in a new and wonderful reason to go to yarn shops. Always thinking, I am.

Sounds like a lot of fun! Oh, I think you'd have fun with rug hooking. Go for it!

Hee.... I've always had dreams of wool rug hooking!

I'm adding my vote to those who think you should go with that inclination to try rug hooking.

Or. If you want an excuse to try new crafts & spend lots of time around beautiful yarns, you could always open your own wool shop.

It's a thought.

Awww, I love you guys!
I'd always thought I'd open a bookstore with big soft reading chairs, some local pottery, antiques...and call it Saturday's Child...but now I'm thinking yarn.
