Bendigo Sheep & Wool Show


Oh my... what an excellent day at the Australian Sheep & Wool Show! I think I spent about 5 minutes admiring the very pretty sheep and 5 hours ogling the rainbow of yarns, knitwear and haberdashery.



One of the best things about attending any sort of crafty event is all the friendly, super nice people. People who are happy to share their expertise, let me to fondle their knitwear, search Ravelry for the pattern I can't quite remember the name of and even offer to drive 3 hours to north east Victoria to share their skills. Such wonderful people!

This beautiful little woven basket? I was given it! I think the lovely ladies from the Basketmakers of Victoria could tell I was just a little enthusiastic about the idea of joining up with their local north east group!


And here's my little stash of woolly goodness from the show... rather restrained wouldn't you agree? ;)

  2. Year after year I intend to go to the Wool show and I've missed it yet again! I've never been but every report I've heard sounds great. It looks like you had a great day. Have fun with your new wool!

    1. Oh Linda, you will have to go next year! I did wonder if it would be worth the 5 hour round trip... but it definitely was! :)

  3. I have read about this on another lovely blog and immediately loved it! I don't even knit! How gorgeous, it looks very inspiring.

    1. Do you know, I actually felt a bit guilty for hardly even looking at the sheep... it seems poor form having previously lived on a sheep station! I'm sure you would love it Jane. x

  4. I bet there was some wonderful coloured yarns. I didn't even know you can get alpaca yarn over here. I bought some when I was travelling through south america years ago now. It was my thing to do while waiting for busses, knitting.
