Well - I went and it was awesome!! I was there both days. I bought yarn, roving, baskets, met new friends, hung out with old friends, ate sheep, looked at sheep and petted sheep, knit and even spun a little. Overall - it was a great weekend.
It all started on Saturday with breakfast at Coleen's house.
She had quite a spread and even carved us a watermelon in the shape of a sheep to get us ready!!
She had also finished her Arwen - it's it gorgeous!
After breakfast - we headed out and soon were in the midst of a sea of fiber enthusiats. I had no particular agenda - so I was free to take in the mobs of people lined up to buy Socks that Rock and Tess and Brooks farms and Sea silk at my leasure.
Hubbo even decided to come along! He had heard me talking about this "Sheep thing" as he called it for months and decided he had to see it for himself. Well - he was so great - he waited in the monstrous T-shirt line for me and about 10 of my friends! Thanks honey!
He even touched the wool!!
After a yummy lunch of Lamb - I went to the Blogger meetup and met lots of cool new people and hooked up with some old friends.
It was so great to met some people I had only written to online.
I also spent some time looking at the sheep - and definitely wanted to take one home... but alas! I decided my dogs wouldn't appreciate that...
Aren't they cute though!
It's a sheep cow!
Check out these 4 horned sheep!
There were alpaca and llamas and goats and rabbits too!
I did try a wheel or two while I was there - but nothing screamed "buy me!" loud enough - so I didn't come home with any. I did buy a few raffle tickets to win a wheel - so hopefully - when I win - they will be delivering that soon :)
The weather was perfect - I was in the company of great friends and found some great yarn and roving.
Thanks for a great day!
Day two and all my purchases tomorrow!
