Fireman indulged me and we went to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival.
Retired work pal, Anne and her husband Ed, met us there.
A border collie owned them once, named Alfie.
His memory is revered in their family.
This man knits at the Trial every year.
He knows a lot about the whole deal.
They had an announcer this year which made it even more fascinating.
You have to believe me, that watching the dogs herd the sheep in competition at their Crook and Whistle Trial is as exciting as buying yarn in the barns.
So many of you blog pals are animal lovers too...
I think You'd enjoy it!
Unbeknownst to one another, Anne and I bought the same yarn to bring home. I kept touching the yarns and the ones that made me sigh were all Huacaya Alpaca skeins.
So that's what we both bought.
I have to go pet it now.
