The NH Sheep & Wool Festival was this weekend and I got to go this year for the first time! I really wasn't sure what to expect but I have to say that I had a great time.
I saw some Llamas....
I saw some knitted items. I particularly loved this grouping. These were all knit from raised, hand-spun and dyed wool.
This is Glissade by Ball and Skein from Barton, VT. It's a hand washable, fingering weight 50/50 Merino/Silk. They have gorgeous colors and a lot of beautiful samples in their booth. Rose Beck's Sugared Violets shawl was knit up in this yarn and I loved it.
Snowfield Alpacas and is a sport weight with about 150yds per skein. I'm thinking a color work hat for this. I don't have a pattern in mind yet, but I'm sure I'll find something fabulous, or maybe even design my own.
Merrily Cowl. This skein has 520 yds, so I'll have plenty for an infinity cowl and a regular cowl.
After I got home form that, it was family night. All my boys are home right now so we went into town for appetizers and drinks at Longhorn and then we went to the movies to see The Great Gatsby. All 5 of us enjoyed it which is pretty amazing because we all have different tastes in movies. It was a great day :-)
What did you do this weekend?
