Upcoming Fiber Festivals!!

on April 25, 2013

I am looking forward to going to two upcoming fiber festivals: The Powhatan Fiber Festival and the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.

This Saturday, April 27th, is the Powhatan Festival, a small local festival here in Virginia.  I have never been, but found out about it from my knitting group.  It sounds like its going to be really great, the vendors appear to be small local dyers and spinners.  That means I am going to come across a lot of unique one-of-a-kind yarns!  Which means I either have to go with a pattern in mind or be prepared to find one skein patterns that will work with whatever I might buy.

Then on the first weekend of May is the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival! With the exception of last year when I was living in California, I have been going to this mecca for yarn lovers since 2005 and I am excited to go back.  I am hoping to meet up with some friends from Philadelphia there, since I am very familiar with so many of the vendors.  A lot of them are LYS from around the East Coast, but there are some specialty booths around too – like the Signature Needles and the Flameworked Glass Needles that I mentioned a  post or two ago.

I am hoping that attending these two fiber festivals will pull me out of my knitting slump, this has never gone on for so long before.  I am still only knitting during my knit nights.  I need to soak up some powerful and positive yarny vibes, I need to re-energize my knitting mojo, I need to get my fiber groove back.

Regardless, I promise to share with you guys all of the exciting beauty at these Fiber Festivals and if you plan on being there look for me! 🙂
