Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Festival 2009

On Saturday I tagged along with Miss A and Tammy (aka: Darthknitter) up to Crystal Lake to see some fiber. There didn't seem to be as many vendors this year, but it sure felt like there was more buyers. The clouds threatened us with rain drops, but none fell while we were there.

Miss A scored in the Briar Rose booth with this little lovely. Isn't it just awesome that she's having BR custom dye a big batch for her new big project. How fun!

The alpacas were back again from the Prairie Creek Alpacas farm and what a delight they are to see.

Just so darn cute you want to take them home.

Just about wanted to steal these bags right off the shelf.

I also bumped into Karin (aka: knittypitty) under the big tent trying out her skills in hand dying some sock yarn. That looked like lots of fun and I can't wait to see the finished skein.

After walking around the whole venue about 3 times, I couldn't get my mind off this little funky Trindle. So, I went back to see if it was still around and was lucky to bring it home with me.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, I know I did!
