NH Sheep & Wool Festival, Part I


It didn't rain! That was really the big news today. The weather was ridiculously beautiful - the best I can remember it being for this festival. Erica and I headed up pretty early this morning and got there around ten. We actually managed to be fairly organized this year - we looked at everything and took notes on the vendors we wanted to revisit. I think it was a good strategy, because I managed to stick to my spending guidelines. (I'll write another post about what I got.) We met up with some old friends (including Cheryl and Sara) and made some new ones (hi Caitlin!). We ate the perhaps-now-traditional apple crisp for lunch. It was a great day.

A few pictures:

Cute alpacas:

Rocking alpaca. Isn't it cute?

Pretty bags of fiber:

And we realized while leaving that we had no pictures of sheep, so we made these guys be models on the way out:

You know, I'm giving all the credit for being organized this year to you. I LOVE the idea of taking notes on the program so we can revisit the vendors, but I'm too damn chaotic to bother. Great pics of your loot-I didn't realize you took so many when we stopped.

That rocking alpaca is adorable! And I love that they leave the alpaca's legs unsheared -- it makes them look like they're wearing leg warmers!

Darnit, how did I miss you? Sigh. Next year...or Cummington, perhaps?
