Hot off the press

Just returned a few hours ago from the 2nd Annual New England Fiber Festival at the Big E in West Springfield MA. Met lots of very nice people (typical for fiber festivals in my experience) and shot another few hundred photos for the portfolio -- see below, and more at the Walking Wool facebook page.  Also, got a front row seat for a shearing, and learned a little more about that skill, which I covet and hope to learn one day. Some helpful vendors gave good feedback on the sample Walking Wool Calendar I brought with me.

It was worth the reasonably short drive.
