From Bennett Age 8

Hi everyone.  My name is Bennett.  I am 8 and just starting to knit.  I think it's going pretty good. My mom attached a picture of my knitting and of me.   I had some holes in it and I started again.  I want to make a potholder when I can get my stitches to go real good.  I am glad there are other guys who knit.

 

 

New Hampshire Sheep and Lakes Festival.

Well, it's actually the NH Sheep and Wool Festival, but with all the rain we've been having, I think my friend's daughter's renaming of it was most appropriate.

It was great fun, despite the weather. The vendors were there because that's what they do. The serious I-will-see-vendor-X-and-buy-stuff festival goers were there. What's a little (or even a lot of) rain when there's raw fleece to be purchased? I swear these people are descended from Vikings and fleece acquisistion is the 21st century equivalent of looting and pillaging for them. When we dropped off our 4 fleeces, the Zeilinger's trailer was already half full and it was only halfway through the first day.
