…Yes, I know I’m a little late with this post but it’s finally here.
Not a whole lot to report this year. My sister and cousin joined us (Kira and I) while daddy stayed home to finish up some work on the house. That meant my sister and cousin ate their way through the festival while Kira and I spent most of our time in the barns with the animals.
My cousin, Alex, my wee girl and my sister, Julie, who’s wearing a sweater I knit about 7 years ago. It’s an Elizabeth Zimmermann, saddle shoulder with garter cuffs. Very simple, very warm!! I might have to make another one of those soon…
The eating began here, at the Artichoke French vendor. As usual the line was super long but the wait was more than worth it.
Like I said my girl couldn’t resist the “baby sheep”. I lost count of how many sheep and alpacas we pet throughout the day.
I was given a moment to myself and I headed straight for cephalopod Yarns. This is one of the two companies that used to be Sanquine Gryphon. The other one, The Verdant Gryphon was not there (or at least not listed in the festival brochure).
People where very excited to shop and sample. But not more than me. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some of the “new” Bugga.
Meet Rose Weavel…looks alot like Long Tailed Beetle by the original company. I can’t wait to get this on needles. But alas it has to get on the end of a very long line of “Can’t wait to Start” projects.
Festival is over now I have to get ready for Halloween….More treat bags to make.
