Luckily the following Saturday (this past Saturday) I drove down to Ann Arbor for the Fiber Expo with a fiber friend. And what an incredible little fair the Expo is becoming. I believe this is the fourth year the expo has been put on, and this was my third time going, so I feel like I can speak to its changes. Year by year the Fiber Expo has been getting bigger and better. It is the perfect size really. A few barns, enough vendors to spend a few hours, but not overwhelming in any way. My only complaint? I was rammed by moms with strollers several times. Double wide or double long strollers really should be banned - they are a menace!
I bought several hanks of roving, one ball of hand dyed worsted weight yarn, and some hand lotion made from Goat's Milk.

My ban on buying sock yarn continues, so I didn't buy the yarn that most caught my eye and continues to create little moments of longing.
