I Can Find Yarn Anywhere

As I said before, I went to the MN State Fair again today. I found this needle felting set and merino roving at the MN made booth in the Empire Commons building. I plan to use this in the future to embellish felted bags. I also watched a woman demonstrate a drop spindle which makes me want to try it out. I aldo have to say you can get THE best blueberry shake in the same building. Mmmmm.

Check out this wall of home spun yarn! So tempting but I resisted.

LOOK at this perfect sheep! I'm fairly sure she's was the winner in the ring today, I didn't watch close enough after she left the ring to see where she came from. Even if she wasn't the winner I think she's pretty.

I took oodles more photos so they may be popping up here occasionally or on my photo blog.

The one building I don't go into at the fair is the one that has the yarn, figures! Too bad I don't have any time to go back. There is always next year. I like the colors in the needle felting kit!

I went to the MN state fair when my sister lived in Bloomington. I remember the food! Also, the crafts and farm equipment displays.

You're making this Minnesota girl jealous. Most times I'm happy to be living in CA, but ... the state fair! Hmph. Enjoy some cheese curds for me, will you?
