We're back from New Hampshire Sheep and Wool. True to form the weather provided challenges all weekend long. Those who have been attending this event regularly know what I mean. The only thing we were missing this year was snow, and at times I wouldn't have been surprised to see a few flakes swirling around.
Of course on Friday the weather was nice.
Saturday was raw with rain, heavy at times. We had some issues keeping everything dry, and there was a slight puddle forming at the back of the booth. Compared to what some of the other outside vendors experienced, we really couldn't complain. While Sunday was dry, the temps were cold and the winds fierce and blustery - an invitation to wear layers of wool.
This alpaca was beyond cute.
In case you think that there is only wool for sale at a sheep and wool festival, we made a stop at Thyme & Ewe Farm . . .
I was gifted with this from Five Sheep and a Donkey.
At Kisakanari, a vendor selling Jacob fleece, I spotted this and had to pause. I learned that this shawl is a beginning knitter's second project. Yes, second project.
I've been knitting for so long that I have no recollection of my second project, but I do know it was nothing like this. What an inspiration!
Thanks to all the hearty souls who stopped by our booth. New Hampshire Sheep and Wool - always an adventure.
