NOT NH Festival. Mass Festival. (also, I really do know where I was last weekend.)

Went to the Mass Sheep & Wool Festival, not New Hampshire (thank you Lisa - I just show up, what do I know.) show as a vendor this past weekend, and had an excellent time. (I went to NH festival as a vendor as well and had a great time but took no pictures etc.)

Got to spend time with famous people:



And a gaggle of fiber artists lounging about - Juno, Cate, Tsarina, Kellee, Cassie (again) and names I've forgotten - sorry.


There was fine music on Sunday - don't remember for sure if they were playing on Saturday...



This is Patrick of West Elm Farm, he was generous enough to share tent space with him, and we love him for it! If you've seen us at Rhinebeck, you know he's there as well, couldn't do it without him. He makes some fine soap and awesome hand balm with lanolin, go try some, it's at the bottom of this page here.



And of course, it wouldn't have been 'normal' if there wasn't a drying rack full of drying yarn in the hotel room...


So, not much of the actual festival but that's typical for me, as I've found it really is nicer to take home some of the money made in the booth rather than spend it all at the festival... the husband is way less cranky that way ;-)

In other news, and really way other news, can anyone guess what this is a picture of? (Hint: The smart-ass answer of 'truck' will not win anyone any prizes. Perhaps guessing what the truck represents, or what is on the truck would be a step in the right direction here.)

This is your new yarn truck with the build-in drying rack, that you bought after you found out that the Harlot posted about your yarn again.
(It does look a lot like a livestock truck, though.

I would say that it is your new livestock truck that you have purchased to be able to send livestock to market!

It looks to me like something to haul chickens in.

Tsarina of Tsocks said...

I assume I am disqualified from guessing what's in the truck and when it was in the truck... seeing as how I already know.

But sweetheart, I think you've got your festivals mixed up with each other. Those pics are from MA, not NH, and MA was last week and NH two weeks before. (I know, hard to keep track.)

Also, I notice that one of the names you couldn't remember was... mine. So maybe I should spill the beans about the truck after all. ;-)

I have seen these trucks haul both chickens and pigs. Both are STANKY.

Tsarina of Tsocks said...

Oh. "Tsarina." Duh. That's me, isn't it.

Never mind.

Looks like a cattle truck to me, but I really can't tell the difference between vehicles designed for sheep or cows. Otherwise, I think I'm out of the running.

Marion said...

I would guess it is a truck for hauling sheep.

Faith said...

I believe it is a sheepish poultry truck.

tracey in michigan said...

that is a truck for transporting live kindergartners... or what I'd be tempted to use as one;)

Or Sheep?

Or Piggies?

Or Llama's?


but prolly NOT cars. which is what I usually see here- in Michigan;)

No lamb for me this summer?

Wudas said...

That truck is designed for hauling livestock.

Faith said...

It looks like a troubled sheepish poultry truck.

kathe said...

that was me up there asking if I cannot haz lamb this summer...sorry about the anonymity, I was caught off guard.

candi said...

Have you branched out to other forms of fiber critters, like maybe alpaca? Because that sure looks like a livestock transport trailer to me. Of course, I'm a city girl so what do I know?

Colleen said...

If you don't know where you are, then how do you show up?

Is that the truck for those changes you were talking about in NH (you know, the show -before- the last show?)

Antje said...

I am thinking cows,heifers, calves to raise. Also a few pigs. Horses and a donkey.
Llamas and Alpacas.
Best of luck!

Hey there! Nice photo. I shall post it to my blog!

It was great to meet you! Thanks for the encouragement, help, advice, and evil enabling! Look forward to talking again! Here I come, Rhinebeck!

Baa-a-a-a-a!

Or possibly

Maa-a-a-a-a-a!

I like the drying rack idea, though.

undeadgoat said...

As has been said already . . . that is a Fiber Animal truck! Clearly . . .
