I spent a lovely day on Friday at the show. Unfortunately it wasn't all day because we had to leave early afternoon. It was great to see so many Ravellers there.
There were lots of sheep.
And heaps of fleece:
I always like to start the show with the competition entries. And this year I was particularly keen because I know one of the entrants. Recognise anything Val? They were a bit hard to photograph because they are all behind glass.
I've seen this scarf before!
I met ms gusset from Ravelry with her wonderful display of hand dyed sock yarn.
I feasted my eyes on all the colourful fibre.
I indulged in a little stash enhancement with sock yarn from Ewe Give Me the Knits
and some laceweight from Glenora. The dark plum skein is Alpaca and silk and the blue one is pure silk.
Before heading home we also made a quick trip to the Bendigo Woollen Mills. The shop was packed but I did get to meet Jacki (Jackik71) and Sam (pattymelon). And I bought some of the new Luxury yarn (very, very soft) to knit this.
A good day indeed!
