A yarn

I have a hot date with my mom tomorrow. We are going to the Fiber Frolic, which seems insane since the weather is drastically changing tomorrow. It's forecasted to be hot and hazy and in the 90's. I feel bad for the sheep, goats, llamas and rabbits. I think there's a real subculture to be observed when we go, which will be amusing. Do the llama owners look like their animals? Who in their right mind would spin dog fur to make a sweater? I once said I was passionate about fiber, which was not a reference to leafy greens or bulky cereal. I just find the color and texture of yarn to be creatively stimulating. Hence my huge stash. I'm not sure what I'm going to make with it all, but I'm sure at some point it will all be used to make something.

A fiber frolic, hmmm? Yup, you definitely live in Maine.

I must know how the llama drill team was. A dog hair sweater? no thanks. Are you going to show us pictures of what you find? I love to look at lovely yarns. (By the way, loved the title.)

"Fiber Frolic" You know where my mind is. I bet you thought,"I know Tom is going to say when he reads this."
