Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival

September 18, 2010 at 11:11 am 2 comments

I went, I saw, I came home with a bag of raw wool…even though I promised myself I wouldn’t. Ah, the best laid plans.

But there was this bag of Leicester calling out my name and I fell into its dark, sexy locks and mysterious depths and was lost forever. Plus, the price was right. But, more about the seductive Leicester in another post.

From the newborn lambs, and the sheep herding demo, to the pirate coffee van and the vast barnfuls of vendors, this year’s festival was a winner in my book, despite the drizzly, cool day. Next year I pledge to take at least one workshop and to submit a skein of handspun for judging. But for now, I bring you several highlights of our day in pictures.

DD and yours truly, in a state of yarn bliss

It was a toss-up as to who was herding whom here.

    Oh my, for a few seconds I thought that was DH herding sheep, but I see his cap is blue, not white. At least you didn’t come home with two sheep as DS (dear sister) and DBIL (dear brother-in-law) did. But that’s right, you don’t have a barn either! It looks like fun, but will probably always compete with Holy Smokes for the second weekend of Sept.

    My border collie needs that kind of activity. Thanks for the post
