Waynesburgh Sheep and Wool

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!

    Huh, this is a little over 2 hours south of me. Wonder if I can make it down.

    Ohhh, that is SO COOL that you’re part of a sheep-to-shawl team! Though I can definitely understand why you wouldn’t want to gunk up your wheel .. .

    I can’t wait to see what your team makes!

    Hey, I was the flicker for the team this morning and Julia was awesome for her first time with the “gunky” stuff! You should all try a sheep to shawl contest if you get a chance.

    How did it go? Was it crazy fun, or just crazy? Do you have pictures?

    That really seems fun and exciting. I love watching the Sheep-to-shawl competition at MSWF, so I imagine that its a whirl-wind day for you.
