Yesterday was a lot of fun. I walked approximately 5,280 miles, ate a lot of festival food, said hi to people whose work I respect and appreciate, met a bunch of Ravelers at the Ravelry party, bought some nice things and pet a lot of sheep and goats.
The animals are mostly sweeties. Some are shy, but some aren’t. They seem to enjoy being spoken to softly, maybe with some scritchings behind the ears. These animals give us fiber folks so much joy, it makes sense to me to appreciate them in person, maybe give them some joy with a well-placed ear or under the chin scritch if they want one. I’m told this is a bit hippy dippy, but I can be kind of hippy dippy sometimes, and I like the idea of that joy going full circle between the animal and the human who spins or knits with its wool or hair. 🙂
This little guy was a trip! He got some scritchings, and was so curious about my iPhone I thought he was going to bump it with his nose!
