Over the weekend I finally made it to Wisconsin Sheep & Wool
. I've wanted to attend for many years, but something was always on the calendar for the same weekend. Not this year! Alex and I got up early on Saturday and drove to the festival for a few hours of sheep and fun.
We walked around and saw a lot of sheep.
We also spent some time watching the Crook & Whistle trials. I think that was my favorite part of the day. It was so interesting to watch the dogs herding sheep. I didn't get any pictures of that, but here's me and Alex happily watching on the bleachers.
We also really liked the sheep shearing demo. It's amazing how fast this guy can shear a sheep!
There was a little shopping too. The market has lots of great vendors with lots of great stuff. In the end I came home with two skeins of a merino/yak/silk blend yarn from Gale's Art
It was a great day and I'm so pleased I finally made it to the show. I look forward to going again in the future!
