Shepherd's Harvest







Sunday, on the spur of the moment, we traveled up the interstate for the annual Shepherd's Harvest.  We hadn't been in a few years and were hoping to get a chance to meet some Clun Forest sheep, the breed we've decided on.  Unfortunately, they didn't have any around this year, but we did get to meet some other agreeable ewes.  

Most of the afternoon was spent with the animals, but we made a quick run through the market. (It's really not a run through, because it's huge.  Like four full sized barns huge.  I didn't pick up any yarn or fiber this year, but I did find a foraging/knitting basket that I've been needing forever (my other one has a giant hole in it).  I let Luke pick the color; yellow, because it reminds him of the dandelions blooming in the field.  

Over all, I'm glad we made the trip, because it will probably be a very long time before we're able to do it again.

  1. Oh, sounds like a fantastic event. I haven't been to a fiber festival in several years now. I know that Jillian was at that event. Small world! http://tendriltwine.blogspot.com/2014/05/shepherds-harvest.html
