Gore Place Sheepshearing Festival '16

We couldn't have asked for better weather yesterday for the annual sheep-shearing festival at Gore Place in Waltham.

There we cute animals. Kids chased chickens.  We ate too much fair food and got a little too much sun despite liberal application of sunblock.

Wooly activities like shearing, spinning, weaving and knitting occurred. And I even picked up a small amount of yarn from  June Pryce Fiber Arts. The worsted is planned for a requested hat, while I have just been wanting to play with a gradient set for ages. Now I just need to find the perfect patterns.

That is the best festival! I am glad you had a great time. They definitely had the better weather day of the weekend. Does Mr. Ford still do the traditional style shearing? One of these days we need to get back there.
