The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

Fluffy, furry, fuzzy...

Not 3 new dwarves... but what I saw today...

This morning me, Kyle and Nikki headed out west... well maybe not that far west. We went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

I knew it was a big thing in the knitting community here... but this big?

There was wool to be petted...

Oh... this kind of wool was petted too...

We wandered among the crowds...



we saw more animals...

We saw people doing cool stuff...

And I brought home some goodies...


I have to admit though, I was soooo overwhelmed, I almost walked out with nothing... It was so much to see and touch and yes... I was seen sniffing yarn.

I wondered though about the placement of the food stand selling Lamb Kabobs, and Leg of Lamb sandwiches right across from the barns... Shh... don't tell the lambs...

More pictures can be seen here.

6 babbled along:

    That was great, I live way to far away from there to go, maybe someday :), I'm sure if I go I will be in debt for the rest of my life ;P. Very interesting about the woman spinning the angora, I'll have to give it a try. :)

    That's a lot of people! I would have been a little taken aback at the selling of lamb kabobs and leg of lamb too!

    Cute that one of the wools was named Nikki :D
