The fiber highlight of my year is always the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair. As always I had a wonderful time. Unlike some years the weather was beautiful and not unbearably cold (though cool enough to show off sweaters and other hand knit treasures). The shopping is overwhelming and the talent that the vendors, teachers and attendees display makes me humble. But my favorite part? The animals :). I fell in love with a couple of baby Shetland sheep this year and am now in search of a small farmhouse with space for a dye studio and sheep...and a landlord willing to be paid in yarn!
