Estes Park Wool Market 2014

As you may have surmised from the title, this post is about this year’s Wool Market held in Estes Park, Colorado!  It was a Saturday/Sunday shindig and my Knitting Brew Crew ladies and I went on Sunday.  The drive to get there is absolutely gorgeous (even with the flood damage from last summer) and the town itself is just a cute little quintessential mountain town!IMG_3994

We spent a lot of time in the animal barns and got plenty of pets, goat kisses and bunny cuddles.  It smelled great (if you like the musky smell of barns and livestock, and we do), everyone was super nice and social and wanted to answer all of the questions we had and didn’t know we had!  We may have almost walked away with this lovely lady (the bunny, the human was already ours).IMG_4089 IMG_4093

The day was topped off having a drink and a snack at The Stanley Hotel (of The Shining and Dumb and Dumber fame).  The most unexpected part? (The beauty and creepiness and movie paraphernalia was expected) IMG_4096

They had their own little butterfly incubator chamber!IMG_4099

Did you do anything fun this weekend?  What’s your favorite part about festivals (wool related or not)?

  1. I love the photos! What kind of rabbit is that?

    We moved this weekend. There are yarn shops all over now! Sanity has returned. Today I might do some good old fashion walking around the new town.
