Spring Knitting and Stitching Show

Eek! Yesterday I went to the spring knitting and stitching show with my mum. Today, I dragged my partner along! It was fab! I could have spent soo much money. In fact, I kinda did… whoops. Good job I budgeted for it! Here are some of my highlights:

The knitted farm. This was the competition this year. To enter, you had to enter farm yard items and send them to the organizers. These are some of my favorites!

The crocheted jungle – this was a fab project to teach beginners to knit it looked so good, and everyone in the tent seemed to be learning so quickly!

And of course, I need to share with you everything I purchased.
