Dream Vacation

Just returned from a month in the United Kingdom. We visited all of the dream spots I would ever want to see, and yet I am so jealous of my husband. He just told me he’s been dreaming of our vacation every night since we’ve returned. That is a whole extra week of vacation that I didn’t get, so unfair. So some of the highlights for fiber, were Cockermouth, England’s Woolfest. A 2 day event highlighting the rare breeds of British sheep. They had examples of the breeds interspersed with booths selling fleeces, yarn, patterns etc. There most celebrated local breed was the Herdwick sheep. They are born black and turn gray as they mature. (Hmm who does this remind me of? Me.) I brought home 3 different colors of roving to make something special to remember the trip with. Then the Elphin Scotland, in the highlands where I met Hilda, a local spinner, and she shared some of her Gotland fleece with me. Finally, Shetland Island way up in the North Sea. A fantastic place to see Shetland Sheep, ancestors to my own California herd. This is a fiber artists fantasy spot, you can’t take a hike without finding wool on the ground. We met talented dyers, and knitters at Jamieson, and Jamieson and Smith. The Textile Museum was fantastic as was The Shetland Museum. Everyone was helpful. I met Ela Gordon,and Hazel Tindal both well known in their field of Fair Isle knitting. Darn that husband for getting an extra week. I want to go back!summer 2014 scotland irland trip 752
