My shawl has a police record.
Five minutes before the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival opened last weekend, someone stepped into the Brooks Farm Yarn booth and slipped the Optic Waves Shawl from my book off its hanger and into her bag.
That theft kicked off a series of additional break-ins, thefts, and acts of vandalism that kept the Howard County Sheriff's Department busy all weekend—and that left a lot of knitters wondering what was happening to our once-sacred little community.
But the sheep were plentiful, the lines long, and the vendors well-stocked, so join me for a look inside this year's Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.
