Back to the State Fair

Today was a grand day at the fair!  Lots of interest in the wheel , and two children even asked, un prompted by parents, if they could try making yarn!

Passed out a  lot of flyers for Milwaukee String theory, hopefully some of those folks will actually show up one of these Thursdays. 

Made a lot of yarn today.  Finished plying the Finn with some of the blue, and finished another bobbin full of the raspberry blue roving I got from Ogle Designs last week.  As promised, Some of the skeins made at the fair this year will be given away tomorrow evening!

Comment on this post between now and  1 am Monday August 12, and tell me what your favorite thing about going to the fair is, and you will be in the running for one of six skeins to be given away.  Winners will be posted and contacted for pick up or shipping information on Monday .  Pictures of the yarn will be posted tomorrow, but only comments on THIS POST will get you a chance at a skein of yarn!  One entry per person, please!

I'll be back at Wisconsin Wool Works in the Sheep barn again tomorrow, spinning from 9-3.  Come see me! 


  1. Alas, budget constraints kept me away this year, but one of my favorite Fair activities is going through the animal barns and the handcraft exhibits.

  2. My favorite thing about going to Fair is the animal judging. I grew up on a farm. I was a member of 4-H. I like going to the Shows and comparing my choice for best to what the Judges pick.

  4. I look forward to the days when I can spin half as beautifully as you!

    Don't know what my favorite thing at the Fair would be as I've never been to a state fair yet!

  5. I haven't been to the fair in years, but I always love the food (mmmm, scones, krusty pups, nanaimo bars, elephant ears...) and handcrafted items!
