Berwick Show 2014


So excited after umming and ahing about wether I could be bothered entering anything in the show this year, I'm so glad I did. 
It's been a really busy couple of weeks, with celebrating Mum turning a significant birthday number, family visiting and then going camping.  I didn't even get to the show until 2 o'clock this afternoon.  This left me barely 2 hours to have a look at all the other talented crafty people's work, have my Dagwood Dog (can NOT go to show and not have a dagwood) and enjoy watching the wood chopping.

The scarf is knitted from 'Chelsea' by Heirloom, a blend of 70% wool / 30% bamboo.  I do like the way it was displayed on the wall.  The beret is 30% possum / 70% merino.  The tea cosy is just that fluffy stuff you can get anywhere.

The knitted tea cosy competition - 1st & 3rd place

Now I must concentrate on finishing the zig zag scarf that is currently 'On the Needles' as well as getting ready for my first stall in a couple of weeks and launching a facebook page.  Oh dear, where's a tech whiz when you need one ...
