Our recent "Fiber Adventure Trip" to the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival was a visual treat, and elicited many goodies!

As part of the trip, attendees were given a "goodie bag" with donations from some special friends and colleagues:

Varian Brandon donated her Blue Flame Cowls pattern. Varian is a master at stranded colorwork design, check out her website for some fabulous tutorials!

Dana Gervais donated her Constant Companion Shawl.

If you're a dog lover, you'll appreciate the little pawprints on the border! This is a quick and easy shawl to make.

Jessica Anderson's Bus Stop Shawl is the perfect little shawl, perfect for fall!

Lynn D.T. Hershberger's felted Watercolor Bag pattern uses one of my favorite yarns: Noro! She also donated pins for her "Toss it Team" online community for creative clutterers.

Karen Whooley offered a discount coupon for her Craftsy class, "Mix & Match Crochet Bag Techniques."

Kimberley Bridgwater offered a discount for one of her many crochet and knit designs.

Ann Tudor donated a cute pink sheep split stitch marker. Her new markers can also be worn as earrings!

And I made little notebooks and LMB Designs pens so we could keep track of what we saw at the Festival!

And here are the goodies I brought HOME from the Festival (from top, clockwise):

Fiber Optics soft merino/cashmere/nylon gradient yarn for a new shawl design; Red Maple Sportswear alpaca sheep socks and a felted sheep Christmas ornament; Sheep and yarn ball drop earrings from Bitsy Knits: Book "Knitting Ephemera: A Compendium of Articles, Useful and Otherwise, for the Edification and Amusement of the Handknitter" by Carol J. Sulcoski; Brass shawl pin from Skaska Designs Unlimited; Voolenvine Yarns hand-dyed yarn from Brooklyn, NY, colorway "Assaulted by Bears" in a yummy merino cashmere blend; Leicester Longwool sheep locks dyed in autumn colors from Maple Frost Farm; extra interchangeable needle tips from Knit Picks.
