When I was leaving the 1st night I heard a ton of bleeting and baaing and went over to see what all the ruckus was about. There were SO many sheep I was amazed (I've never been to MASWF before), it rivaled Rhinebeck as far I was concerned.
Some were ready for bed, like me!
And these I fell in love with at Rhinebeck last year, the Cheviots. I think they are just so sweet looking.
The mama (I think she was the mama) did not seem happy that the babies were coming over to be petted and actually shoved them away from me so I took the hint and moved along.
MASWF was amazing overall, I met some great people, did well enough to make me want to go back again and couldn't have hoped for better weather. The local area is gorgeous and I only wish I could have stayed longer.
Before the crazy week that ensued after receiving the "we have a space" email I was crazy busy working on a last minute gift for my oldest friend's daughter for her baptism. It's actually the Pinkie Blankie but I used a sport weight alpaca yarn and went up a couple needle sizes and am thrilled with how it turned out. Although my last minute blocking job in the sunshine that morning was horrible, I'm sure, being a baby, she'll forgive Auntie Em (I know, I know). I just hope she still has it when she's grown and enjoys being wrapped up in it.
More tomorrow, I'll try not to be so boring, ahem!

My stand at Clermont (well, one part of it anyway).
Some bright, yummy fingering weight yarns.
Pretty and lucious alpaca/wool blends.
Some llamas that my daughter seemed to be enthralled with (she pulled up a chair and made herself right at home).
My view from the booth of some lovely fibers, nice people and spinning wheels!
After Clermont I got back to a prayer shawl that I've been knitting for my dear, sweet best friend who has both kidney disease and lupus and needs a little something nice to be wrapped in! (more pics when it's actually finished!).
I finished some socks in April!! They are the black dress socks I was dying to finish LAST YEAR!! But....at least they are done so I won't harp on myself for too long!
