Today NurseK and I headed to Estes Park for the annual Wool Market where we met up with YogiK.

YogiK and NurseK bond with an alpaca.

It was a beautiful day and we got to see tons of fiber animals as well as some wonderful fiber, yarn, and other beautiful things for sale.  I could talk more about it, but let’s be honest, y’all just want to see gratuitous shots of cute animals, right?  Of course right.  On to the cuteness!

There were llamas . . .

This little fellow wanted to come home with me.

Look how friendly he is!  Only $200!  Practically a bargain!  They only get to be about 50 pounds.  If we put a collar on it and tell everyone its a dog . . .  Yeah, CodeMonkey didnt buy that either.

So I didn’t come home with a sheep, but I did come home with a pretty nice little haul.

Thats May/June 2008 lace issue of Piecework, 2 ounces of bombyx silk in shades of purple, some Yarn Place Gentle cashmere/merino laceweight in a lovely rose color, and 4 ounces of bamboo/nylon/merino in turquoise, brown, green, and purple.

It was a great day, despite the whole not bringing a sheep home thing . . .
