I love the sheep ...

This past Saturday was spent in New Hampshire to visit with grandchildren and go with them to the Deerfield Fair in Deerfield, NH. Once we got thru 2 HOURS of traffic we got into the park and had a great time. Altho ... there were SO MANY people there, we never really saw everything or even ATE everything we intended to.

BUT, I got to see the sheep ...






Hey don't ignore me gals ...






And then I even watched the "Traveling Barnyarn" felters doing their handneedle felting. I'd rather knit & then felt in the washer, but it was interesting talking with the ladies.

I just couldn't leave without something in my hot little hands either, right? So what did I get? Roving! Yup, I got some beautifully soft Lamb's Roving ... for knitting thrummed or lined mittens. I purchased the roving from Riverslea Farm. Oh my gosh, it's sooooo soft & luscious! Wish you could just feel it. It's black roving so I need just the right backdrop for it to show up in a picture.

And then I got home wishing I had bought MORE ... go figure.
