Boy it really has been a hectic week and weekend, it was good to take a relaxing drive out to the Mt. Bruce Station in Romeo for the Sheep and Wool Fest. It was a beautiful day for it. I met my friends Jim and Jacky for some shopping and lunch. Jacky is not a knitter but I think that she appreciates hand knits. Of course I found some wool to purchase, a BFL llama mix in a rich neutral brown, a cream color Shetland, and a lighter weight variegated handspun wool with browns and creams. Might be nice for a blog contest?
Here are some of the wools from Pond View Farms, one of my favorite sellers. Not only do they have really good quality wools in some really nice blends but Carol also makes licorice scented soap that makes my bathroom smell like Good n’ Plenty’s.
One of the highlights for me is seeing the sheep herding dogs in action. These dogs are really fixated on sheep! They can barely be contained when the sheep are let loose on the field. I managed to catch a little bit of it on video.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. I still have one day left, nothing like a four day weekend and then next week is a four day work week!! I’ll take it when I can.
