"Gandolf" the sheep in Sheep-to-Shawl contest Can't Post

This article caught my eye because of the sheep's name, but I think it's pretty cool in and of itself.

Local team competes in spinning contest at state farm show

It's a competition at the Pennsylvania Farm Show where teams have to shear a sheep, spin its wool, and weave a shawl -- all within a 2 1/2 hour time limit! They're judged on their work and the quality of the finished shawl.

With caffeine, all things are possible.

The pity of Bilbo will screw up the fate of many.

Very cool! [In reply to] Can't Post

I never heard of this kind of contest, but I like the idea. It's great that these ancient arts are still being practiced (and information about them traded via modern technology). Cool

"I am sorry," said Frodo. "But I am frightened; and I do not feel any pity for Gollum."
"You have not seen him," Gandalf broke in.

The fiber arts [In reply to] Can't Post

are alive and well in Pennsylvania, though I was very disappointed when I heard that the Misty Mountain Fiber Workshop in Gettysburg was closing its doors. Can't spin my Middle-earth theme yarns from their stock now...though there is still Misty Mountain Farm in Virginia.... =)
