It is a very friendly event. The scale is small enough to be very doable, and for non-knitters, there are other vendors of interest - everything from soaps to brooms.

The one oddity is that in one building, they serve lamb burgers and lamb stew, and in then two barns over there are sheep being sheared. A cautionary tale, I suppose. It's always been a bit funny to me.

I know! That's the one thing that's sort of odd and downright creepy...

To tell the truth, ever since I started knitting and crocheting, I can't eat lamb anymore!
