Wool and Sheep Show

Standard

I went with my daughter to the Sheep & Wool show in Maryland today. My daughter is a terrific knitter, I am not. There were exhibits of dog herding sheep, farm equipment auction, sheep shearing demos, and sheep in their pens to be petted. There were lots of vendors selling wool – in roving, yarn and by the oz. In natural colors and a rainbow of colors. They sold patterns, buttons, pins (jewelry), needles, spinning wheels, and everything else you cannot even image.

My granddaughter (14) and her friend went to see the dogs do their thing and then to the barns to pet the sheep. They phoned to ask about our progress only to hear we had barely put a dent at the vendor’s barns. A funnel cake, another dog show, and sheep shearing demonstration and we were finally ready to call it a day.

My daughter brought two shawl patterns and some yarn. I hope to become the precipitant of one of those shawls. It is too bad I do not knit but I am better at quilting. All I bought was a bag of candied nuts.
