This Saturday and Sunday (May 19th and 20th) is the Annual Waynesburgh Sheep and Fiber Festival, in Greene County PA. This is maybe the 4th year for this show, I haven’t been there before, but I think it will make for a nice fiber fix this weekend. This show really isn’t advertised all that well, so I try to tell as many fiber knittery people as possible. So if your anywhere near south western Pa, please do come, it’s about an hour, give or take, south of Pittsburgh, if that helps.
I’ll be there bright and way to freaking early on Saturday, I’m spinning in the Sheep to Shawl competition, on the Butler County Spinners and Weavers team. This is my first sheep to shawl, I’m pretty excited, but honestly, I’m not looking forward to gunking up my pretty little wheel with all that greasy fresh-off-the-sheep fleece. Gah. We “borrowed” a chocolate colored sheep, I forget what breed, from one of the guild members. Hopefully I can take a chunk home to clean and spin, just a little bit though, I’m not particularly found of raw fleece. Anyways, I’ll be one of the three spinners for our team, the youngest by far, no offense to my wonderful and lovely team mates! So if you can make it Saturday, stop by and say hullo!
