One of the best parts about these festivals is the amazing work on display.
From hooked rugs…
…to woven pieces…
…to detailed colourwork in natural and dyed shades.
There were even some things that weren’t really sheep or wool at all.
The sock in front is called Oktoberfest. I think it’s pretty cool to have a sock that looks like a beer! When the kits are available, they come in this yellow colour, and also in “Irish Red” and “Stout”.
I always find the displays so inspiring. Even if it’s not a craft or project that I’m into, just being around work that was made with so much care and enthusiasm is a special treat. It motivates me to improve my own skills, to be able to create something that will bring similar inspiration to others.
