Well here we are with September almost at an end, and I still have fleeces to sort ready to send to the scourers. It has been a very busy month, here at Hawkshaw Sheep HQ.
We started by gathering the sheep in off the hill to start weaning the lambs from their Mothers, it makes for a noisy couple of days after we have split them up, but both the lambs and their Mothers soon get used to the idea.
Next it was time to pack up the van and head off to the Perth festival of yarn, as Perth is only a two hour drive from home I travelled up early that morning, I arrived in plenty of time and had to wait for the doors to open, then it was a bit of a mad dash to get set up before the doors opened to the general public. It was a fantastic day, everyone from the organiser, other vendors and the public were just so lovely, it was a real pleasure to be able to vend there. Next year it is going to be a two day event, I'm already looking forward to it.
