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!
