Of course, it is not Shepherd's Harvest without the sheep. Lincoln Longwool to Baby Doll cuteness. It is amazing to me how much variety there is with sheep and their woolly coats.
After Kathy and I left the festival and ate lunch, it was time to check out Lila and Claudine's yarn shop. It is a visual party! Color, texture, and just plain fun to see. I was a very good girl by leaving without any new yarn. I am determined to slash the stash at home.
...and now for some photos from the weekend...
|Trying the electric spinner. It was pretty cool, although I believe there are enough|
electrical devices in the house and I do not want to be plugged in when I spin.
|The little sheep on the right was snacking on the larger sheep.|
|Jacob sheep. This was a particularly pretty one|
she was laid back an looking good.
|Mamas and lambs. A perfect picture for Mother's Day weekend.|
|Curly top with a pretty white fleece.|
|Close up of a gray Lincoln. The sheep was huge and this was a|
nice fleece, light outside and darker inside.
|Baa baa black sheep I don't thin you have enough wool--yet!|
|Little sheep--I think these were adorable and just|
right for cuddling.
|Lila and Claudine's--big honkin' needles!|
|We just had to get photos with those needles!|
|...interesting and fun to see!|
|Walnut shell buttons. This booth also had|
beautifully crafted needles.
|The roving I was on a mission to find. The cookie was promptly|
devoured after this photo was taken.
|A giant bobbin full (8 oz) of yarn! Now to wash, dry, and count yardage!|
