Yesterday Lucia, Debbi and I ventured down to the CT Sheep and Wool fest for the day. I really enjoy the small laid-back festivals the most. There’s no mad rush and very little crowding in the booths. This year it was as lovely as ever with some great new additions. I especially enjoyed the lace making demo and the sheepdog trials (the lace was new this year, I think).
The morning started out quite cool and overcast but around lunchtime the sun popped out and things warmed up beautifully. We admired all the pretty fleeces but none of them came home with us. I loved the bead vendor and hope he’ll be back again next year when I’ll be sure and save some budget for purchases there.
Afterwards there was a visit with Indigo Di. She made the most gorgeous tarts and delicious treats that were most welcome at the end of the day. Several spinners and knitters were present (gosh, I hope I got everyone somewhere in this post!) and there was even a Turkish drop spindle demo, thanks Judy! That’s gone on my wishlist now. It was lovely to chat with everyone in a smaller more intimate setting, I thoroughly enjoyed it. There is a full set of photos here if you are so inclined.
