Warning! Picture Heavy Post

Well I am back from the Fleece Festival, and as usual is was loads of fun - even if the weather was uncooperative. We were set up inside in one of the animal Bldgs. There were weavers

and finger knitting (my table)

This young lady was enjoying the finger knitting so much she ended up with about 25' of fabric!
This is my original design

All of the yarn and equipment was supplied by The Yarn Tree in Williamsburg.

This is a sheep and a sheep shorn

And of course I couldn't resist the alpacas - they are such hams!

All in all a good time was had by all - if you can check it out tomorrow!

Looks like it was a great day! I wish they did stuff like this near me. I saw a demonstration on someone's blog about th finger knitting and it was interesting. I'll just add it to my long lists of "to do".

Thanks for sharing!

Wow, great pix! It looks like fun and I love your finger knitting table. I like the way that looks, even before the braiding.

Have a great day!
