bring on festival season

Cathy with her puppet.
Kicking it off yesterday at Connecticut Sheep & Wool Festival. You know what I like about the festivals? The culture.
Where else can you be "matchy-matchy with your stockinette style".
Or with your headgear while, watching the sheepdog trials in sunshine.
While next weekend is the Knit-A-Palooza in Maryland, this one is so small and manageable,you park your car, walk for a minute and there you see half the festival as well as the New Haven SnB representing.
NutmegKnitter, CafeEclectic, SunflowerFairy, MissAliceFaye ,Archiknist, (hidden but there, KnittingEwe), some of the blogless, and oops I can't find anyone else's blog that's shown. But they 're there too.
Lots of talent on display.
But I believe the New Haven posse deserves a shout out.
For best knitting in transit. That's Gauss, Editorgrrl & Cottonhollow (rav links for those last2)

I go to NH (Woohoo! Coming right up!) and Vt festivals, haven't been to any of the others. Maybe someday I'll do Rhinebeck...
Bobbin lace is fun - I should dig out my bobbins, because I have such, you know, copious spare time...
