I would be remiss if I didn't talk about the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival as it is coming up very soon. This is the place to see miles of yarn and all the other accoutrements that go along with sheep, wool, knitting, spinning, yarn...the list goes on! This year the Festival takes place on May 3rd and 4th in West Friendship, MD. This is right outside of Baltimore, see the red star on the map. Please visit the link if you want to go! Here are some details and directions.
