Back For More

While the household was asleep, I crept out at 6:30 am for another shot at the Sheep and Wool Festival. It is almost a 2 hour drive from here, but without the Saturday traffic I was there in a flash. I was better prepared for the heat today. I dressed sensibly, carried little and made sure my first stop was to get a snow cone.

In the Saturday crowds I had missed this unusual sock display that greeted you at the entry. You can only imagine how some people were posing with it for photos.

At 8 am I was surprised to find the place full of people who were there to watch the Sheep to Shawl competition. By 9 am the place was open for business and I was in and out in about an hour with a large bag full of goodies.

Here are this year's stash additions minus the biggest purchase of all. I will show you all of this in detail in the days to come. Right now I need a cold drink and cool bath.


  1. I felt so bad for you yesterday as you always look forward to the festival. I'm so glad today was a better day! Your haul almost looks as large as mine!

  2. Today was a GREAT day!
    I can't wait until next year!
