Fiber Festival 2011

November 15, 2011 by enid

Of the Yarny kind. I had the best time this weekend let me tell ya. I went to Kid ‘n Ewe and Llamas too in Boerne, Tx. It was so nice. It had been a while for me. I think one year I missed it because I was preggers and the drive was too long for me. The other time I was just post op from having my gallbladder removed. And then last year, I had been planning to go with a really dear friend of mine but she had a life changing medical emergency and I don’t remember much of that year.

It was a great year for going, because well it just was. I have great friends and my dear friend was able to go with me this time. I couldn’t be any happier. All my favorite things wrapped up in a yarny ribbon, could it get any better than that.

It’s a three day event but I went Saturday and Sunday. Saturday I went with my one of my best mates Mary. With good intentions to leave at 9am but the it seemed that we both suffered from a little snoozebutton-itis. It’s all good it’s Saturday after all. I peeled myself out of bed, dressed myself, slurped my coffee, packed a little lunch, kissed my kiddos adios, and off to pick up Mary. We arrived and out came out our cameras to take pictures of all the beautiful colors, to bad the pictures can’t really capture the full experience. Well minus the llama and cashmere goats in the show barn smells. But some of the fiber combinations create some of the softest yarns. Like an alpaca, wool, silk blend, or bison, silk and alpaca blend. Lots and lots of hand painted yarns, the color combinations that my camera just don’t capture as well. Let me share with you some highlights of this weekends pics and tomorrow I’m going to chat a little more about it.
