103rd Connecticut Sheep & Wool Festival
When I wasn't busy at the HHCC's booth, I was spending time with the teenagers -- one was celebrating her 15th birthday, so we had yummy carrot cake and crochet lessons in the warm sunshine for her! ... and I got to do a bit of shopping too. I bought mostly stitch markers and ID size tags. Sure, stitch markers are sold local to me, but this is the first time I've seen them in purple! My CGOA Chapter color!! LOL My daughter bought me the sheep beads which I think I'll make into earrings. I didn't buy any of the super yummy yarns although I wanted too -- I'm still working through the yarn I had bought back in January!

For a sheep & wool festival of its size, it is a great way to spend the day, sharing in the love of all alpaca'd in a single day. I think everyone had a sheep-ishly good time. I know I'm looking forward to attending again next year! :)
