Sheep to Shawl at World Sheep and Fiber Arts Festival Bethel, MO
You can see both teams here
I was a little dissapointed to get a red ribbon on my wilde greenies socks, until I saw the best in division for knitted garment
This was handspun, handknit cashmere and silk, wedding ring shawl! Exquisite lace knitting! It is held up here by the spinner/knitter and her husband. I only wish I was this good of a knitter. Following patterns is not my forte. I like to create on the fly. I am a" by the seat of my pants" knitter!
Little Miss Bo Peep was in the lead line competition. There were activities and games for the kids. There was also Mutton Busting, for those who may never have heard of it, that is riding a wild sheep. The kids put on helmets and let er rip! Rodeo training for the younger braver crowd.
