There was one big road trip left for the great knit-cation: The Woodstock Fleece Festival!
It's about an hour and a half away, so I trundled up to Mom's, loaded her into the car an we hit the road!
We went to the WFF a few years back and I loved it. All the great vendors of the Toronto Frolic, but without the massive crowds. Well... apparently word has gotten out.... it's still all the great vendors... but the crowds are there now too! We managed to squeeze our way through. Mom got some lovely fibre to spin (from a vendor who has a shop 10 minutes from her house... but hey...) and I was on the lookout for something special.
Sadly, the kits were well out of my budget, so I'm going to do a little more research and save up some money for next year.
Instead, I consoled myself with a beautiful hand made shawl pin
And then I found a clearance bin with a pile of Himalayan silk.
Mom also made a new friend
We took the backroads home, enjoying the fall colours and ended up going through the area where I grew up. We started reminiscing and decided to hit a little farm store we used to frequent to get a cup of hot apple cider.
Well that little farm store isn't so little any more. In fact they were quite the little tourist trap. It wasn't as packed as the festival, but there was quite the crowd! Certainly not how we remember it.
Though they look so nice on the table... they might just stay there!
Now, there's just one day left to knit-cation - so I'm gonna get knitting!
