Spring in Connecticut

Last weekend Mona and I were at Connecticut Sheep, Wool and Fiber Festival.  This one day event is less than a 2 hour drive for us, so it makes for an easy outing.  Well, no event is truly easy.  We had one long, exhausting day, and I think it took both of us the better part of last week to recover.

The weather was dry and clear - a bit on the warm side but there was a nice breeze.  My picture taking was sporadic, i.e. I didn't get any shots of our booth.  

It was a good day to be an outside vendor.  

This event has grown in size - more and more vendors every year.  In fact this year there was a waiting list for vendors.

And it wouldn't be a sheep and wool festival without animals.  

These alpacas were so cute - they got lots of attention.

The day was full of many fun activities - sheep dog trial, sheep shearing, ox cart ride.  Plenty to see and do.

The best part of these events is the people who visit our booth.  Last year at Connecticut we met the women from Serenity Scarves (ravelry link), and it was nice to see them again.  As always we met many new people - people with fun, creative ideas and energy.

Daffodils on the lawn - a definite sign of spring.  Time to prepare for our next event, Maine Fiber Frolic.
