 This weekend was the Lambtown Festival in Dixon.
I have heard about the fiberiness of Lambtown since I came to California but unfortunately I have been working on Saturdays when it happened in October.  This year the festival had been expanded to include Sunday.  Although I'm not working now, Sunday was the better day for me to attend.
I did take a camera with me but managed to forget to take pictures.  The best part which I didn't photograph where the sheep.  I really need to learn more about the different sheep and what they actually produce wool wise. I loved the one's that had dread locks.  I really wanted to bring a sheep or two home but Jim had suggested we really did not have anywhere for them to graze plus I'm sure the HOA rules would forbid sheep although I could maybe refer to them as "sheep dogs", maybe?
While the majority of vendors were selling roving there were a few selling yarn.
My favorite was Fishknits.
I love the vibrancy of her colors and couldn't resist her self-striping fingering sock yarn, Panache, in the colorway Witch's Brew.

 It's really hard to see the little bit of bling the Stellina gives the yarn.
I got home and immediately wound up the skein.  I can't wait to get started on a pair of socks.
Don't tell the sheep but I also enjoyed a lamb gyro before heading home.  It was delicious!!
