Long Time...No See CPurl

Every weekend for the past several weeks, our walking team has been training for the Breast Cancer 3-Day. Every weekend the training plan increases the number of miles we walk so the number of hours we walk each weekend also increases. Last weekend we walked 16 miles on Saturday and 11 on Sunday and so far we've logged in over 260 miles. But this past weekend, we happened to have a relatively low mileage target training goal so we took a well deserved break from walking and drove to Dixon on Saturday for the Lambtown festival. Lambtown is a small town affair but we had SO much fun relaxing and knitting and eating junk food!



Hmm, where is the shearing competition?



Recognize the beautiful fibers? It's from Kristine of A Verb for Keeping Warm

We found a nice shady spot with other Ravelers...


...and stocked up on the food essentials.


There were lots of fluffy bunnies. This guy was HUGE but all fluff--he weighed only 8 pounds!

Clearly we had a favorite booth at the fair.

Nannysknits learned to spin on a drop spindle at the festival and couldn't stop!

And today we were up and walking at 6AM....

zomg, i had so much fun yesterday!!!!! :) i'm uploading pics right now, but i didn't get very many. are you still stiff & sore after the walk today? i'm exhausted, but part of that had to do with me not getting a nap and having to stand in line at the at&t store..and then having the activation take a million years.

Sounds like Lambtown was exactly what Team Unraveled needed! Sounds like you had a great time, and that's very well deserved. Looking forward to the walk next week!

Lambtown was absolutely perfect! I want to go back next weekend, too! (but wait, aren't we taking a little stroll on Saturday? Something like 21.5 miles? I'm trying to forget about it....)

I was cracking up at the "shearing competition" signs when I got there, too :)

Sounds like your team training is going really well!

As we get closer to event season, we'd love it if you'd share photos and/or videos (training, event, etc.) on the official Breast Cancer 3-Day Flickr group, YouTube channel, Facebook fan page or MySpace page.

Welcome back! Been wondering where you were (assumed the training regime was keeping you busy :0 )

Lambtown looks like fun.
