Fiber Frolic

In past years the weather at Maine Fiber Frolic has been all over the map.  There has been everything from extreme heat that makes you want to run and hide from all things wool to extreme wet that makes you wish you had a boat.  This past weekend the weather was just perfect.  We had comfortable, cool temps under bright sunny skies.  It was ideal.

This was my third event in four weekends.

The booth was up and running in a snap.

A new item was featured.

Sweet Bunting Cardigan Kit made its debut.

The food at Fiber Frolic includes traditional fair food - fried dough, french fries, Italian sausage - and a couple of other options.

Falafel and wood fired pizza.  Gourmet fair food.

It was a great weekend for the outside vendors.

This mushroom top awning is perfect for a vendor who carries felted gnome kits. 

It wouldn't be a fiber festival without sheep shearing.

He makes it look so easy.

This Merino ram stood still long enough for me to get a shot.

Incredible horns.

All weekend long llamas were on parade.

This one strolled through the vendor building several times.

And I couldn't resist this one.

This sweet baby would run away from me and then look back to make sure I was still watching.  Such a tease.

It was fun to catch up with some of the vendors whom I see only at this event.  Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy this great weekend!
