Closest Sheep & Wool Festival
I love attending certain sheep and wool festivals, and it’s nice to have one of my favorites a mere 20 minute drive from where I live.
Garden State Sheep Breeders Festival
In Ringoes, NJ, the Garden State Sheep Breeders Festival has been growing over the years, and this weekend will mark their 22nd annual event.
While the festival is primarily focused on the sheep and livestock competitions, it attracts a number of vendors selling yarn and fiber that keeps me coming back each year.
In fact the yarn I’m using for the biased scarves I’m making…
…comes from Amber at Taylored Fibers, so I will be stopping by her booth this weekend to pick up some more. Her superfine alpaca is soft and luxurious and makes a beautiful product.
If Hayes isn’t too tired from his West Coast travels, and his flights experience no unexpected delays, I’m hopeful I’ll get to see him on Sunday for the event.
Anyone else planning on being there?
With my first craft show scheduled in just over a month, I’ve switched from knitting scarves to knitting West Coast Watch Caps.
I have an inventory of over 50 scarves to sell at this point, so I figured adding a dozen or so colorful knitted caps that I can sell rather inexpensively, will help make the venture financially viable.
