Cunningsburgh Show

Our tour of the Shows continued this week and we headed to Cunningsburgh on Wednesday. It was a lovely day, the only one of the week so it was great to be out!

Before heading back to the Knitwear to see the finished displays, as always the skill and amount of Knitwear entered was brilliant and it was very hard to judge the Colourbox, I did a few of the other category’s too but the I’m sure the other knitwear judges would agree the standard was very high!

As we had a tour in the afternoon we headed back to town so we didn’t get a look at everything but just like the Voe Show there were Cows, Poultry, Horses, Vegetables.. lots of things to see!

    Thank you for the pictures and comments on this fair. It is wonderful to see the incredible handknits, the wool, sheep, and dogs. The knitting is unbelievably complex with the colour combinations and patterning. And the young lambies are post card perfect. Thanks!!!

    Anywhere else in the world, those second-and third-place knitting finishers would have scored firsts! They are as far above regular knitters/knitting as professional golfers are above the duffers who play the links on a Saturday. Gorgeous!

    These are such amazing examples of colorwork sweaters. So beautiful as are the sheep, dogs and wool. What an exciting place to be.
