Whirlwind Weekend

It's the Monday after New Hampshire Sheep and Wool, and I'm wavering between exhilaration and exhaustion.  This event brings people together from all over New England.

It was great to see so many friends from around the region.  The event has a track record of crazy wet weather.  While it was a bit damp this weekend, it could have been (and has been) much worse.

There are buildings and tents stocked with fleece, fiber and yarn. Looking for equipment?  There are spinning wheels, looms and more.

Beautiful baskets with yarn added for scale.

Wonderful colors and gorgeous handknits are on display everywhere. It's easy to be overwhelmed.

There are animals, sheep shearing, dog herding and sheep dog trials.

If you get hungry, there are a variety of food vendors to choose from.

And you can top it all off with any number of sweets, including fudge.

I think I might be suffering from a fiber hangover.  Thanks to everyone who came out.  It was great fun.
