It was a beautiful day in a beautiful weekend, and it was good for me to get away from the draft out and hang out with some fellow knitteristas.
Some recently sheared Alpacas. The one standing was very loud. I think he/she wanted food.
A sweet little lamb. There were some baby lambs that I forgot to go see, but heard they were adorable.
A proud peacock. He didn't open his tail, of course.
Pretty cashmere goats. Their coats were just beautiful.
This one needs a shearing. She hadn't been sheared last year, but hopefully, will get sone soon.
Spinning, Weaving, and Dying
My pal Michaela of the Palmetto Fiber Arts Guild dying some wool. It was hot work stirring over all those hot pots.
Some of Michaela's yarns drying. I love the orange yarn in the far corner.
Information about sheep.
Some knitted items from one of the spinners.
I like these cheerful felted bags.
I love this knitted and crocheted throw.
Some of the gorgeous yarn for Scotch Range. Most had angora, which Patrick is allergic to, so I couldn't bring it home.
From the Knit booth. They just got in some Noro sock yarn.
I loved watching the sheep herding demos. The dogs were great!
The sheep shearing was cool too. Check out those shears!
Here are some fleeces.
The festival was very small, but educational and friendly, and a very nice local event. I hope it can grow and attract more people and vendors.
It made for a nice get-a-way!
