Christine and I got up quite early yesterday and headed down to meet Kathy and L. for a carpool down to CT Sheep and Wool. As always I really enjoyed watching the sheepdog work the sheep. I resisted patting the bunnies and quite enjoyed all the colorful surroundings that a fiberfest usually entails.
I think the festival grew just a little over last year and there were more outdoor vendors and more vendor packed into the indoor spaces than I recall from last year when Grace and I went along with Kathy and co. I was so pleased to meet "in person" some lovely ladies whose blogs I so enjoy reading.
And now for my Monkey Swap questions:
long have you been knitting? It’s been just over 3 years.
Do you consider
yourself a beginning sock knitter, an intermediate, or have you been
doing this so long you could probably knit a pair in your sleep? I think I’m a fairly adventurous sock knitter and I do have something on the order of 20 pairs under my belt.
