Huw and Lisa and I arrived about 15 minutes after the festival opened on Saturday morning. First we watched a bit of the demonstration of the border collies herding the sheep.
|The dogs waiting for a command from the shepherd. They were alert and ready for action.|
|The shepherd giving commands to the dogs, herding them into pens.|
|Jan Marek Raczkowski's yarns displayed at his stand. I bought some BFL.|
Of course there were beasties. Goats, and sheep, and alpacas.
|Some Shetland Sheep.|
|Two newly shorn alpacas.|
|This is the first time I remember seeing lambs. This Clun Forest lamb is getting his dinner.|
Of course I bought some yarn at the fair. This is it in aggregate. In another blog post, I'll talk about the yarns that I got, and why, and what I plan to do with them.
Stitch House, but all of it was acquired this weekend. And I know what is going to happen with at least 11 of these 14 items.
After all was said and done, we left the festival, after having been there for about five hours or more. We were tired. We were happy. We were laden down with yarn. I can't wait til next year!
