This past weekend was my fourth time attending New Hampshire Sheep and Wool and I have to agree with Norma – this is my favorite fiber festival of them all. The setting is beautiful, the vendors are terrific, and (generally speaking) all my peeps are there.
Dale and I headed north on Friday after work. It was so wonderful to have an entire weekend away. While the festival was our main goal in going away, we also relished our time together in the hotel. We had a beautiful room with a jacuzzi, room service and very nice amenities. It was the perfect respite each evening.
I’m sure you’re happy to hear about our romantic getaway but I know why you’re really here – to hear about the festival. I wouldn’t dream of disappointing you. Allow me to present Saturday:
Like any good fiber festival, it’s all about the people.
People who goof on you.
People who hug.
People who wear shawls.
And people who wear boots.
People who buy a fleece.
And people who exclaim over the fleece. Truly, this is the picture of the day. As always, more pictures are available on my flickr page.
The best part about Saturday was that I really got a chance to visit with everyone. Because there are no lines cough, Maryland, cough there is lots more time for catching up, hanging out, shopping and even knitting. It was relaxing and I honestly felt like there was time for everything and that’s certainly something that doesn’t happen often at a fiber festival. Hooray for the laidbackness that is NH!
Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you the excitement that was Sunday morning.
