Are you ready?

When you cannot sleep it is a perfect time to think about yarn and yarn related items. Is it March 18th already! I can't believe it. Spring is just around the corner. Are you ready for spring, summer and fall festivals!?

This year, I'm going all out and planning to attend many of these. Which of these are you planning to attend?
Hope to see you there!

May 3-4
Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival
Howard Co. Fairgrounds, MD
Notes: I have never been to this festival as we're always out of town. No matter what is going on (barring an emergency), I'll be in MD this year to see the sheep and enhance my stash.

June 14-15
SoXperience 2008 at Carodan Farm
Notes: I attended last year and highly recommend it! The farm is situated in the mountains of Virginia. You'll knit outdoors amongst sheep, alpaca and llamas.

Oct. 4-5
Fall Fiber Festival
Montpelier Estate, Orange Co., VA
Notes: I attended this show a few years ago and thought it was great. Since it's so close to me (and my brother and sister-in-law live right down the road), I'll probably head over this year.

Oct. 18-19
NY Sheep & Wool Festival
Rhinebeck, NY
Notes: OMG! I am so excited about Rhinebeck! I've never been, but this year some new friends that I met at last year's ASIST conference emailed me about going to NY! Hopefully I'll see some snow (as I've been deprived of any real winter this year ).

Nov. 14-16
KnitXperience, A Knitters Retreat
Graves Mountain Lodge, Syria, VA - sponsored by Carodan Farm
Notes: I signed up for this retreat last year, but at the last minute had to cancel. November at Grave's Mountain should be really cozy!
