SVFF 2019

 Doesn't this make you happy?

This is where I was yesterday and I was so happy to be there.

 It's been ages since I've been to a fiber fest and I was giddy at the sight of all this fuzzy beauty.

 I wanted it all and I mean ALL.

 My knitting and spinning mojo has been off the charts this week so it was hard to control myself.

I did however walk right past the fleeces. Ever since they stopped letting you feel them I haven't been interested. If I can't bond with a big bag of dirty fiber it's not coming home with me.

I had to tear myself away from the baskets. I wanted one in every color.

 I am going to show you what I brought home tomorrow but here's a hint.

And another.....

 ....and one more. Something was sending me a message and I ended up doing something I NEVER do. I blame it on the heat. It was 90 degrees and miserable inside all the little booths. I only lasted about a half an hour before I packed it in and went home. I did a lot of damage in those 30 minutes though. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.


  1. It is 12:47 AM --- technically it is tomorrow. Tapping my foot and waiting (impatiently) to see what you brought home. LOL

  2. Oh, what a wonderful sensory delight! The new yoke sweaters really have a modern look with the colors even below the yoke! Looking forward to your selection!

  3. Can't wait to see what you got. I've never been the that festival but I will be at Montpelier's fiber fest & sheep dog trials next weekend.

  4. I so wish I could have been there. And I never think of it as damage, it is supporting those vendors and it is therapy for you. Can't wait to see your purchases.

  5. What a wonderful festival and what a shame the weather was so miserable. Looking forward to seeing your purchases. My bet is that you bought a kit for a sweater.

  6. You can feel the bagged fleece? That's just crazy! Love all the gorgeous braids and skeins.

  7. Oh Debra, that looks like SO much fun! How I wish I could have been there with you instead of driving through snowstorms. :-) I want to reach through the screen and touch it all. Tomorrow needs to hurry.

  8. Those baskets are the bomb! I walk past and just say, a cat will end up there. Dont buy that!

  9. What fun too bad the weather was so hot!
