Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

Every May, there is a call felt for knitters, crocheters, spinners, and wool aficionados everywhere to visit Maryland. Like a beacon, they come from near and far to Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival 2011

What Not To Wear - Ewe Have Got To Be Kidding

I grew up near there, so on a visit home in 2011, I was fortunate to attend with Jen. I was in my first trimester of pregnancy with my son LB and had only told a select few family members and friends, so it was special to share that news and moment with Jen while exploring a shared interest.

There were so many amazing areas and features in the festival, from marketplace stands to tutorials. I want to share some of the things I enjoyed most and photos!

Peeking Out from Beneath the Wool

Got Wool?



Though it has been six years since these were taken, many of the same elements remain the same or similar so it may give you a glimpse into what makes Sheep and Wool quite special.

Instant Picnic! Pit Roasted Lamb Sandwich Lunch

For lunch, there was a pit-roasted lamb sandwich with a mild barbecue sauce and a dash of horseradish. I enjoyed it with a ginormous lemonade on the side.
