Journal of Events Attended

September 7, 2014:  The weather was perfect to experience the 20th Annual NJ Sheep and Fiber Festival held at the Hunterdon Fairgrounds in Ringoes, NJ. 

The event has grown over the years and includes many more quality vendors. I am now the proud owner of a free trade basket from Ghana, three pastel dyed skeins of greenspun ragg yarn, hand dyed sock yarn with matching crochet shawl pattern, a nostepinne and a key chain wraps per inch tool both handmade from cherry wood.

We ate delicious homemade chili and sweet corn at the 4-H tent. For our afternoon treat, we enjoyed two scoops of organic, homemade ice cream from Maine. I recommend the Maple Walnut.

Yes, I would go back next year. It has all the ambiance of Rhinebeck without the crushing crowds.

September 20, 2014:  Ingrid N. and I attended the Smiley's Yarn Hotel Sale held at the Holiday Inn in Hasbrouck Heights.  There was a wide assortment of yarns priced from $1 - $3 per skein available in a full assortment of fibers.
