1. Cash only. If it's in my wallet or pockets and it's cash, it's fair game. Sometimes I leave my cards at home, just in case.
2. No yarn. There are about 15 awesome yarn stores within 8 miles of me, plus the internet. Spinning material (besides the internet) is much more difficult to come by.
Once those 'safety nets' are in place, the rest of it is pure fun and sheepy goodness. Now, for the pictures:
There were alpacas:
Coopworth/Jacob/Karakul cross). It's lovely and multi-toned, mostly in greys with a little bit of black. I found 3 distinct shades of grey in it. It weighs 4.5 lbs (raw) which I thought would be a manageable amount for me to hand process, compared to most of the other fleeces (which were around 10 lbs each).
My total haul for the day was about 7 lbs of wool (4.5lbs fleece, 1lb babydoll roving, 1lb alpaca roving, 1/2lb alpaca/silk/romney purple roving), and a broom. It's a very nice broom. I'll get you a picture of it.
While I was in CT, I decided to start a garden. Just a little one, with plants that don't need any attention because I'm only going to be there every couple of weeks, and great-gramps doesn't want to take care of it (just eat everything that comes out of it). So far I've planted thyme, leaf lettuce and broccoli. Isn't it cute?
