Bendigo sheep and wool show 2014

Sunday, November 02, 2014

This year the Australian sheep and wool show became a special weekend away with my Mum. Sadly my usual crafty companions weren't able to join us, so Mum had to endure a couple of hours of wool admiration amid our weekend away.

As the largest collection of indie yarn/fleece sellers available in Victoria, this show is always an exciting one to attend. We had nice weather this time around - if a bit chilly.
We took a little time out to wander into the wool-judging sheds and see some of the prize sheep (and accompanying tiny lambs). 
Not too many purchases this year. My favourite shop was 'The purl box'. Here I found one skein of Oyster Yarns' Superwash BFL 4Ply in the Elliot colourway (on special), and two skeins of  Eden's Blend in the 'Sealer's Cove' colourway (love the name!).
The only other purchase was a skein of Mayhem and Chaos's LolliSox (Rav | Etsy) in the Sunrise Sunset colourway. This skein has already become some Rick socks, and Bex fingerless gloves.
