Rhymes With Fuchsia

Saturday Sky: Carpe Occasionem

Sometimes you have to seize the moment, even if it pours cold water on you.

My friend Erica and I traveled northward to the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival today. The weather started out unpropitious and quickly degenerated to dreich.

The alpacas weren't enjoying it any more than we were: they huddled together for warmth, the baby in the middle. (By then Erica and I, both of us having failed to dress for the weather, were both sporting NHSW sweatshirts; supporting the festival gave us a nice warm feeling.)

Still, we spent most of our time indoors, ogling the wares of Mostly Merino...

...and Heather's wall-o-color. Here Heather displays a lovely colorway she calls Floozy. I told her anything so splendidly fuchsia was going on the blog, nomenclature notwithstanding.

While I wasn't inspired to do much with the camera, we saw many other great vendors as well, and lots of friends; we left with everything but our spirits dampened.

Back home, the sky cleared briefly as I collected Miss B from her second soccer game of the day. They lost both, but played much better in the second game, Miss B's tenacious defense garnering special notice.

As wet days go, this one was right up there.


  • Way to maximize your hydration time! And Yay for Miss B!

  • I love fiber festivals. Ours is not until August (because nothing says "buy wool" like August heat and humidity), but my lace group has a trunk show tonight!
