Shepherd's Harvest 2010

Shepherd's Harvest Festival in Lake Elmo this weekend.

This year I didn't take a class, so I was able to sleep in on a Saturday morning.  Nice treat!

It was cold and drizzly.  I almost cannot remember attending a Shepherd's Harvest that wasn't cold and drizzly.  I didn't get there til 11:30.  The parking lot was full, and there were people all over - body to body.

It's always interesting, attending a fiber festival.  There is such a fascinating mix of people.  If you've ever been to a fiber festival of any sort, you know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, I managed to keep my purchases within control.

One fabulous Cormo Fleece from RiverWinds Farm.  Can you see the crimp?  Oooooh...

One mitten kit from Blackberry Ridge.
It was a good way to spend a few hours on a rainy cold afternoon!

Oh, man! I've bought that cormo before and I've bought mitten patterns from Blackberry Ridge before. I purposefully stood far away from them on this trip!

I did hit up the Briar Rose fiber stall though.

By the time I left on Saturday, I was shaking in my sneakers I was so cold. Sunday's trip - beautiful!

I still haven't warmed up from this weekend!
