They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a bunch of pictures for you guys :)
Baa-Baa Black Sheep Mom and The Wench I think this one needs a barrette, or a haircut. Baby Alpacas Mary-Heather and Casey! Me and Jess! Leesy, Knitmammy, Me and The Wench This is a Jacob Sheep. They're called that because in the bible when Jacob worked out a deal with Lavan he got the speckled and spotted sheep. The Wench with her unspun Jacob Sheep wool. The Wench and I in the rain. It poured all day. Mom ended up with a sinus infection :( None of us brought proper rain gear. We all thought "its a festival and festivals mean sun! It'll clear up when we get there!" Clearly we're a bit delusional. All the pretty buttons I got.
My four ounces of undyed Merino Wool. I plan to dye it (wait for blog posting about that) and spin it. This is actually the only fiber I bought. There was SO MUCH stuff there I couldn't make a whole lot of decisions (and I'm a poor grad student). Next year hopefully will be a bit nicer and I'll get some more stuff.
