Sheepy Sunday

My daughters and I had a terrific time at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.  Knitters all, we fondled a lot of yarn, and even made a purchase or two.  Or three.  And there was the spinning fiber...

And I got my yearly dose of sheep petting.  (I miss my little wooly beasts.  Piglets are cute, but they're just not as soft and snuggly...)

This contented lady was peacefully chewing her cud, and I caught her in mid-chew so she didn't look all whopper-jawed.


This sweet little gal had apparently been waiting for us all her life, and wanted to be scritched and petted and cooed over forever.


And I got several shots of sheep being way too curious about a camera.


Just like old times.

My one regret of the day was that I didn't get a picture of the three of us together in our matching hats.  (Oldest daughter had knitted them as a surprise, just for the occasion.)  Though we chuckled all through the day as total strangers came up to us and asked permission to take our picture.  It was almost like being a celebrity!

The closest thing I have is this pic I took of the two girls while they were in line for something to drink.


So, anyone out there who was at Maryland Sheep and Wool on Sunday, and who took a picture of three women in sheep hats, one of whom looked like this (only possibly less goofy) (or possibly more goofy) -


could you send me a copy?  I'd appreciate it!

Cute hat! When you told me your daughter surprised you with a sheep hat I was expecting a sheep's head hat or something ridiculous and crazy not something so cute.

OMG! There's sheep on your hat! That is sooooo cute. What a hoot! or should I say a baaaahhh! lol. I agree with you. Sheeps are softer than piglets but still, I wouldn't change my Azure for a sheep. :^D

One year I bought a fleece at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival under the delusion that I would transform it into yarn. I am a horrible spinner, so that was silly. Even sillier was the idea that I would survive washing the fleece.

I do still have yarn that I bought there that I envision weaving into a blanket because my envisioneering system runs on overdrive with little interference from reality.

Oh wonderful! I hope you get that picture from someone. The hats are cute but I bet the faces under them are even better.

Now you've done it - wooly sheep hats will be all the blog-world rage! (they are adorable, after all!)

When you mentioned "sheep hats," I was visualizing something entirely different (and not nearly as nice). You have a very talented daughter (I'm sure both are quite talented).
