All of the excitement that was KDO has gotten me into a planning mindset…
Sept. 22nd – Yarn Garden is celebrating their 5th anniversary (5 years already???) with an Open House event featuring Susan Gibbs of Juniper Moon Farm. This farm is the first Fiber CSA in the country – how fantastic! Read about it here.
Sept. 24th-25th – Alpacas of York is ringing in the 4th Annual National Alpaca Farm Days with their own Open House. I’ll be trekking out their way on the 25th, with my very indulgent husband and daughter in tow. Because alpacas = love.
Oct. 1st – Dec. 31st – Knit like the wind. The number of knitted gifts I intend on giving this year is growing exponentially.
Jan. 11th, 2012 – I’m betting that this is the date of the Sheep-To-Shawl Contest at the 2012 PA Farm Show. I didn’t cover it last year… explanations here… but I’m thinking that this year, I’m ready to do it again. But in the age of Twitter and YouTube and live broadcasts from the local cable network, would anyone still be interested in following the event via a live blog? I’d be interested to hear opinions on this – if there’s interest, I’ll be there, on the floor with the shearers and carders and spinners and weavers. If not… I’ll still be there, but in the stands (*sniff*). Watching (*sniff sniff*). And knitting. 😉
What fiber-y events are on your calendar?
