"When last we heard from Brenda, she was about to depart for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival", so begins today's blog post.
Maryland, a two day festival took us - well me, Lynn was home in 5 - 6 days to travel, attend and return home. Not to mention the still-ongoing recovery time. Pulling a trailer full of yarn, books, booth shelving and lighting makes it a slow drive. We take two days for an easy drive down to West Friendship, outside of Baltimore and a day and a bit for a more intense drive home. The show was great. More attendees and looser wallets than last year. A happy time for Shelridge Yarns
Home since last Tuesday, I have had a busy time here as well. Knitting with my Ladies With Balls on Wednesday and the Meaford Knit Group on Thursday. A library-sponsored Mothers' Day Tea on Friday, a Jennifer Potter Concert on Saturday and a collapse day on Sunday.
I leave you with a pictorial of the events.

Our booth, ready for opening day.
Festival Sights - sorry Needles - I didn't get out of our booth until 3:30 Sunday afternoon and by that time had completely forgotten to look up your friends.
Our booth neighbours and their CanCan-like feet display, ready for hand knit socks.
A weaving demo.

Doreen's great braided necklace.
Another great use for the loopy yarn. She had spent the morning at the school teaching 7 and 8 year old children how to make these necklaces.
Tomorrow, the returning saga of "Did Brenda knit?"
