Shepherd's Harvest was great!

Cute llamas, sheep and sheepdogs -- Free admission & parking always rocks too.

I met up with the very sweet Amanda who was helping sell super-gorgeous baskets, and I bought 4 pounds of roving -- 3 pounds are natural gray from various sheep breeds, and the 4th is gray overdyed a deep rose. Also I won a door prize -- a good 6 oz (I'm guessing) of blue variegated roving, which is mohair/silk blend. Sweet! I almost bought a freshly-shaved fleece from the shearing demo, but by the time I'd made up my mind to invest the time, they were sold. *fantastic* prices for those...

I also saw some other pals from Madison, and I didn't even know they'd be there.

If you are in the St. Paul MN area you should check it out, it goes on today also from 10 to 4 or so.
