Off to the Estes Park Wool Festival

Tomorrow is World Wide Knit In Public Day, and I am celebrating by going to the Estes Park Wool Festival. This wool festival is like Christmas and the Super Bowl all in one day! I am going with my friend Amber and her little boy Zane (who is the cutest little boy since my boys were little).

I think this is the 5th or 6th time I have attended in Estes Park festival and I never get tired of it. In fact, I have also been to the wool festival in Taos NM, and the one in Frederick, MD. The Maryland Wool Festival was my Mecca, you know, that once in a lifetime trip. Aw...

This year, I am doing some planning. Usually I just go there and buy yarn I like with no idea of what I am going to make with it.  Then I find out I either have too much to justify using it for a simple hat, or not enough to make a sweater, even though it is the perfect yarn for that raglan sleeve swing sweater. Sure, I could contact the website on the label, but I never get around to it.  So, I will do it right.

More once I make my purchases! I must get a good night's sleep.  So much to plan, so much to do, so much to knit ...

  1. Just a little nit-pick. MD Sheep & Wool is in West Friendship, not Frederick.

    Someday, I hope to make it out to Estes Park.
