Off the Hoof – Asheville Fiber Fair, NC

blog_26_oct_2014

So for today’s adventures, DH and I headed off to the mountains to check out the Fiber Fair up by Asheville.  Always wondrous textures, colors and lovely things that NEED to come home!  – I snagged a fancy new scarf, a funky sheep creature who has been called Sheila (sorry Sheila) and of course a new Pottery Mug for my collection…. pix tomorrow perhaps…. of the acquired treasures…

The best snaps were had out by the “Barn” where the “Sheep Show” was in progress and various Alpacas were strutting their stuff.  First time ever to see a Cowboy with an Alpaca on a leash… but I guess there is a FIRST for everything….

I refrained from buying any new wool to knit, roving to spin or other sundry fleecy goodness, but now for sure I have a hankering to get my spinning wheel out and have at it…….. I still have almost a whole fleece left to clean and spin from the last time I visited this event and that would be QUITE a few years ago…. hmmmmmm a good winter project maybe?    …..If only I knew where said fleece was stashed…..
