Sheep! Wool! Maryland!

Katy's surprise yarn for me

At the beginning of May Mary loaded Molly, Katy and I into her car and trucked us off to the wonderful land of Sheep, Wool and Maryland: AKA Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. We all desperately needed some good girl time and some and had a blast. Now for those who don't know it the Maryland Sheep and Wool is the Big Bertha of sheep and wool festivals. It is huge! and on that May weekend it was also really hot. I admit that touching yarn in 90 plus weather is just no fun. Somehow we all gravitated to fine wool, go figure.
Above is some of my bootee. I am happy to report that I have several projects going with various sheep and wool yarns.
My favorite is A Katy's surprise yarn for me. At breakfast of the second day Katy and I decided to exchange $20 and see what yarn the other picked out for them. We had a few things in the mix for example I hate knitting mohair so no 100% mohair for me. What I got was the lovely hand dyed, hand spun yarn above. Currently the yarn and I are in conference about what it is suppose to become. It isn't a ton of yardage. At first I thought leg warmers but I would have to add another yarn. Fingerless gloves for a overly AC office? I am not sure but will keep you all posted on the plan. Any ideas are always welcome.
