The shawl above knocked me off my feet. Every single yard of lace weight in there was hand spun on a spindle! Click on the image for a better view. I think it won best of everything cos it was covered in ribbons. Apparently the winner spun specific lengths of colored yarn so she didn't have to stop & join anywhere. It was gorgeous. Ofcourse there was no touching allowed.
I want to knit a sweater like this! All thick & thin (worsted to bulky). It looked so beautifully textured. I love how it ribs. The size was for a young person.
Some lucky booger's ma or grandma handwove this entire beautiful blanket for them & then put adorable crocheted animals on the border!
This was a kind of cloak/poncho/shawl (?) Amazingly detailed felted work & needle work on it!
A hand spun sweater. I tried to get a detailed shot so you can see the different kinds of yarns used. The colors were natural & lovely.
The weather was gorgeous & I could barely stop myself from jumping all over the fiber goodies! I stuffed my face with strawberry ice-cream & country style french fries & my car with giga tons of delicious raw fiber to spin.
OK. Enough about me.
The kaleidescope shawl in particular almost caused me to pass OUT! If Anne Grout (i think) of State College, PA had been present there, I would have fallen at her feet & begged her to take me in as a pupil for life.
Another favorite of mine was the hand spun thick'n'thin sweater in cream & dark brown.
The rest were fabulous too.
