It appears the world is a much smaller place than I imagined. We kept waiting for traffic, but it was pretty sparse. There were quite a few people there, but not the crowd I was expecting.
There were animals.
There were sheep, but my only shot was sucky, so here’s an Angora bunny.
We found out that they pant like dogs when they are hot. We were absolutely fascinated. And, yes, that is incredibly soft fur.
We also made some purchases. My BSIL bought alpaca sock yarn. Lovely. She’s not a spinner, so it was sparse pickin’s for her, but that’s ok. They are currently fixing up their house, so she didn’t need or want to spend a great deal. Peanut and I made up for her. Here are my purchases. I apologize, once again, for the really bad picture of the oriface hook, but I couldn’t do any better. It is beautiful.
Peanut and I both bought 4 oz. of baby camel/silk roving. The vendor had it on sale. We were thrilled. This is my first luxury blend, so I’ll have to work up to it;-P
I also got two bumps of Icelandic wool. I have always wanted to try spinning it and buying it directly like this was a big thrill.
There. Done with show and tell. It was a lovely road trip. The weather cooperated and we had a great time at the fest. BTW, there was the absolutely best kettle corn there. Amazing.
On your Monday, Labor Day. Here’s Bob Seeger and “Travelin’ Man”. When did he get so old??????
Have a good one!!!!!!!!
