What didn't get cancelled was the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, which is where I spent the wet, wet day up to my ankles in mud and up to my elbows in fiber. I got great deals on some really nice things, having saved up since last year:
a sweater's worth of wool yarn; some natural dye stuff; a tiny cable needle for making the sweater out of the aforementioned yarn; a pewter shawl pin since I knit 3 large shawls in the last year; natural yak down; yarn for a couple of projects; Corriedale roving; raw Finn Landrace fiber; and half a Romeldale fleece (I split it with my fairgoing partner).
The funny thing is how much my tastes have changed. This year I totally ignored all the dyed and commercial yarns (except those black and yellow ones in the center, which I want for a project for which I have a deadline too tight to do my own spinning and dyeing), and for the most part ignored the yarns entirely. I concentrated on the natural fiber and natural colored wools.
I did make it to the Ravelry meet up too, and met various online friends all over the fairgrounds.
