Spinners with their wheels and spindles were also numerous. I used to think I wanted to spin, but I think to do all that work and then knit it up seems too long of a process. I love the knitting part too much.
The craft that has always intrigued me the most is rug hooking. I think I will get a kit for a small project and see how it goes, though I didn't see any kits that interested me there. I did find these last night as I did some research.
See what I mean? I has no idea there were so many breeds, and I am sure there are more. There were also some skittish llamas and some very sweet alpacas.
My favorite fiber is alpaca or alpaca blend and there were many lovely hanks to choose from.
Every year this dog is a hit. If only our children behaved so well. (No offense kids, but you were not THIS obedient.) I found this on you tube. Others thought it was worth recording.
We also got to see a very enthusiastic sheep sheerer do his job and explain the magic of shaving a fleece so that it comes off in one piece.
We ended our day with some ice cream and then on to the establishment I mentioned on Saturday. I didn't buy anything but a bar of soap at the fair, exercising great self-control and resolve to destash my stash...but I may place an order for a rug kit soon.
