Nice huh? She knit this beauty of a sweater and wore it to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival. I do love seeing everyone’s knit and crochet work being worn and admired.
Is that from Pom-Pom?
Is that Dk or Worsted? etc etc etc. Everyone all yarn talk and pattern praise. Just the thing I needed once we heard Zach was safe from the Earthquake’s jaws. We had plans to go and so we did.
(Uh oh that nippy border collie is headed our way again ladies) . These sheep were clearly communicating and quite good at confusing the novice dogs. ” LIE DOWN.” If we heard the human say it once, they said it at least a hundred times during the hour we watched. LIE DOWN LIE DOWN LIE DOWN!
You gotta love a border collie. They are just so dang programmed and excited to herd that the handler must sound like a little gnat in their doggie ears. I love to watch them working.
And the peanut gallery? Well, they had no trouble laughing out loud when a handler and dog failed and the sheep ran amuck. I have never been to a competition where the audience actually laughed at the contestant. IT made me uncomfortable. They seem to all know one another though. They seemed to be having a good old time.
You all encouraged me you know. You said to go ahead and purchase at the Festival. I did. I didn’t want to disappoint. You all are going to be getting your fill of needle felting stories from me. I decided I had to make those little animals that come out of a pin and some roving.
I needed something entirely new and wooly in my life. And Fireman said no sheep. He also said, no bunnies. and certainly no border collie pup. So…..get ready. Hope it is as easy as it looks. If it all runs amuck you can laugh out loud. We all know each other right?
