2008 Taos Wool Festival

We spent all day Saturday taking in the fibers, animals and knitted garments (made by vendors and spectators) at the Taos Wool Festival. I purchased yarn from one of the best vendors there, Brooks Farm, to make an Ewe Vest. It is a simple garter stitch pattern knit in one piece that was sampled in their exhibit. When in Taos, you must go to Lalana Wools and visit with the lovely, Lynne. She will make you want to knit up everything in the shop. In fact, this is where I purchased the pattern and yarn for my sought after felted cowboy hat. People, it is priceless and I wouldn't part with it for the world -- so go make your own!
