I just got back from four days in Kingston, Ontario, where I was visiting friends. The fiber-related part of the vacation was a visit to the very charming Rose Haven Farm Store in Picton, the largest town in Prince Edward County (not "Island") which is a large peninsula between Toronto and Kingston.
When I asked for the most local yarn in the shop, the owner pointed to this grey wool
saying "That is from my sheep. In fact, it's the sheep on the left on that card." So I bought the card, too, as well as a hank of very soft alpaca from a farm near Kingston.
I loved "the County," as they call it up there. It was beautiful and green, with lovely farms, all against the blue, blue backdrop of Lake Ontario.
And now I'm off to another agricultural wonderland, with a blue watery backdrop: Santa Cruz County. Ah, summertime.
