On Saturday, Nora and I went to the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, or, the If Sue Could Make Her Own Festival This Would Be It Festival, as I now like to think of it.
It’s an enormous gathering of all things fiber arts related: sheep, goats, rabbits, alpaca, llama, spinning equipment, knitting equipment, fibers and yarn GALORE. And a ton of nice people who know just what you’re going through as you fondle and ogle all there is to see and try to decide what to take home.
We met up with a family from Nora’s school. Karri, the mom, is as much of a fiber junky as I am and some how that makes an event like this that much more enjoyable. Best of all, Nora loved every minute of it. She walked through marketplace petting yarn and saying “Ohhh, mommy, look at this one!” And then through the barns petting critters saying, “Mommy, can we get one?”
That’s my girl.
