Adirondack Adventure

It's Monday morning, and I'm catching my breath after a weekend in the Adirondacks.  Come along for a photo tour.

At three years old the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival is a fairly new event.  I had never been to this event as either a vendor or attendee, so I was excited for a new festival in a new location.

This well-rounded event did not disappoint.

Weaving.  Just seeing the looms up and running made me want to pull out my loom.  Several weavers also stopped by my booth to chat. Lovely conversations.

This is for those who want to weave but don't like warping.

Continuous strand weaving.  This loom, courtesy of The Wren's Nest, doesn't require warping.  Magic.

There was felting.

A basket of booties from Valerie's Gallery.

And flowers from Decadent Fibers.


Vintage knitting needles from Lazy Day Farm.

And soap.

So many to choose from at Natural Specialties.

This festival is held at the Washington County Fairgrounds near Saratoga Springs.  The area is full of history, and I would have loved to spend more time poking around.  Maybe another time.  I did stumble across a couple of interesting things in Schuylerville.


Bike art.

A whole row.

In different colors.

And standing guard on one of the street corners.

A beautiful painted horse.

It was a wonderful weekend with a short week ahead.  I'm back just long enough to gear up for another road trip and another adventure next weekend.
