NJ Sheep & Wool AND Men’s Knitting Retreat Openings!
Combined for the first time in one post, a sheep & wool festival, Hayes, and two spots in the upcoming Men’s Knitting Retreat! A rare combination.
Sheep & Wool
It has become an annual tradition for the past few years that Hayes comes to my area of the world. We attend the NJ Sheep & Wool festival (technically it’s the Garden State Sheep Breeders Sheep & Fiber Festival). We look at sheep. Then we buy wool and wool-related items. Finally we go somewhere local for lunch.
But mostly, we gab. Hayes and I have advanced degrees in gabbing.
There are some people who make me smile just at the thought of them. Hayes is one of those people. If you know him only virtually, he’s even better in person.
Here are some of the sheep we saw:
Here is what I purchased:

Finally, I’ve failed at my goal of trying to finish the See Grass Shawl, so I’ve tried to gussy up the photos by including pretty petunias.
I also did no additional knitting on the Scrappy Biased Scarf project. In my lame defense, Hayes is quite gabby
