This was our third year attending the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival and this time we decided to make a weekend event and stay at the Hilton as we were celebrating our birthdays. True we only live an hour away, but my sister always loves the opportunity to spend a night away from home.
We arrived at the fairgrounds around 10 am. The weather was the biggest damper --can you say HOT. The high humidity and temperatures were pretty unbearable at 9am in the morning. I am sure this helped us save some money. The traffic this year seemed to be really bad too, by noon our good friend Cheryl sat in traffic for over an hour and decided to turn around because it was not moving.
The one thing that seemed to be missing was a Ravelry meetup -- not to mention I completely forgot about the Podcast meet up which I was really looking forward to. Of course there were plenty of us Raveler's there and I had my camera in tow and was prepared to get some great Kodak moments. More photos came be seen here.
