I Like All the Different People, I Like Every Kind of Fair
The craft sale area was a highlight (as were the dahlias, obvously), although I guess I didn't take any photos there. Which is weird, because I distinctly remember taking at least one photo of the beautiful hand dyed yarns. There were spinners spinning (nobody I knew), and a woman making lampwork beads, very impressive. There was not a large representation of knitted items in the exhibition hall, which made me a little sad that I was too lazy to drive down and enter my Olympic Orange Oolong socks. They would certainly have been the brightest entry. I've said it before, I'll say it again--Maybe Next Year! After all, there's between $5 and $10 in prize money at stake, which is almost enough to buy yarn for one sock!
I Like All the Different People, I Like Every Kind of Fair: The Breeders, "Saints" Recommended Video here (it's a little weirder than I expected, but then again it isn't.) Note to knitters--Kelley Deal was featured on an episode of Knitty Gritty. with a felted purse design.
