After walking in from parking the next county over ...
I saw yarn bombing...
Sheep that had apparently had their fleece relaxed...
The sheep seemed amused by it.
Little baby sheep!
I was very tempted by this fleece, but I sternly reminded myself I have probably a pound of huacuya alpaca at home that still needs processing.
Just two alpaca this year. Mom and daughter, I think.
They have such lovely eyes!
And lots of goats in a little pen. They were Pym-somethings ... crossbreeds, but it was all very technical and I couldn't quite follow it. Angora or cashmere bred with something else ... sorry, can't remember the specifics.
This little guy was waiting for his buddy (the owner's teenaged granddaughter) to come back and play with them. She had been in the pen with them but left to get something, and they were all looking for her.
I spent some time in the barns, too. Shawls were really big this year. Aren't they gorgeous?
I had to be restrained from diving into these bins.
One day, I'll buy a loom like this. Probably a little Cricket, though, something small.
This guy is at the festival every year, making nostepinnes and spindles.
Or chair legs. Dunno.
So, I bought some Noro Kurayon and a skein of 50/50 wool-silk, which I bought for a specific pattern. I'll probably start knitting that today, it looked fun.
It's 650 yards of the blue wool-silk and 1,000 m of the Noro. I don't know what I'm going to do with the Noro, I have to go Ravelry-surfing to find the right thing. Something for the Autumn, though.
Thanks for stopping by!
