Iowa Sheep & Wool Festival - June 12th & 13th

The Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival in Adel is less than a month away! The Des Moines Knitting Guild will once again be at the Sheep Festival.

We would like to invite everyone to stop by and see what we do as well as pick up a Ravelry button, while supplies last. We will have sharpies so you can write your Ravelry name on the button. As your walking around the festival you will be able to identify your fellow Ravelry members.

We will also be displaying some of our members hand knit items with pattern names and the yarn they used. This is a great way to be inspired and gather ideas for your own knitted projects.
If you purchase some hanks of yarn at the market, bring them to us and we will be happy to wind them into balls for you. We will have a yarn swift and ball winder set up. Save time, let us do the winding for you so you have more time for knitting!

We will also have an area to sit, knit, and relax and meet fellow knitters.
You can find us at the festival starting at 9am on both days (Saturday and Sunday). We will be in a covered building and will have signs posted so you can find us. Hope to see you there!

Happy Knitting!
