Saturday was the CT Sheep and Wool Festival, hosted by the CT Sheep Breeders Association. I took the boys up and we all had a grand time. Here is I-5 posing with the UConn Flock–all there to receive their springtime hair cuts.
There were dozens of vendors selling everything from fleeces to yarns and everything in between so the shopping was pretty good. I scored some loot.
And so did the boys.
There were workshops and many, many more fiber-bearing creatures were on display or for sale. Isaac’s favorites were these.
I liked these.
They also had sheep dog trials and demos and Ox cart rides
(another favorite of Isaac’s).
There was Celtic music and food (lamb, of course) and people knitting in the pavilion outside, or trying out their new drop spindles at lunch. And spinners. I almost forgot the spinners, as if that were possible. The place was lousy with spinners. It was awesome. I can’t wait for Rhinebeck.
