The fam and I are headed up into the mountains this weekend to attend the 22nd annual wool market! If you are in Colorado, have an idle weekend and are even vaguely interested in fiber art and the warm cuddlies that produce our wool, you should consider coming up as well. I’m looking forward to hearing about how handspun wool is judged in competitions, and also to the sheep dog competitions. Not that we need sheepdogs, but they are awesome. There will also be vicuñas, a rarer cousin of the alpaca, and I can’t wait to see them (have a look at this post for an explanation of the alpaca family tree). And on top of all the events and exhibitions, it’ll be cooler up at 7500 ft. Hard to say no to that.
Maybe this evening I’ll attempt to get that frustrating beaded yarn done, so I have something to show you. This weekend, I just wasn’t up to it. I mowed the lawn instead. Which took about five minutes, and is not a good excuse.
