This Saturday is Georgetown's Bighorn Sheep Festival and it is no wonder that the sheep like to come down from the mountains and head toward town with all of the activities planned for the day. Of course, there is also the fact that it's mating season and stepping out to town for a date is a time-honored tradition in so many cultures.

Though I have a variety of wool at The Quilted Purl, none of it comes from the Bighorn Sheep. However, you could celebrate the day by knitting!
