Sherwood Forest Farm Park - post 2

The weekend of the 5th and 6th of June was a while ago now, yet I haven't blogged despite having great fun and getting some brilliant photos.

The weather didn't play completely fair but despite heavy rain and thunder, the sheep were still dry enough to all get sheared, and several fleeces left in the clutches of rather excited spinners. They have no doubt all been put to good uses by now!

It was nice to meet quite a few members of Ravelry who had come along after seeing my mentions of the event on several groups. We made some new friends and had a "guest" spinner with us on each day.

We even managed to get farmer Simon to have a go at shearing:

and spinning:

We had a lovely weekend and are looking into possibly having a spin in day at the farm later in the year, watch this space for more information.

BIG thankyou to Simon and Felicity for letting us invade for the weekend.
