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!
Again I was judging the Colourbox Competition and Oliver the Wool so we headed to our respective huts to get judging..
After I’d done my bit I went to see how Oliver was getting on with the raw wool
As it was such a nice day we had a good wander round and looked at some of the Sheep..
and I was amazed at the amount of dogs..
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!
The Walls Show is this weekend so after that Ill have another post to round up the J&S tour of the Country Shows!
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!
What eye candy!! Thank you so much for the pictures…sheepies 🙂 doggers 🙂 wool work WOW!!
Looking foreward to the next show.
Thanks so much for sharing – brilliant work as noted by others and such a breadth of colour combinations!
These are such amazing examples of colorwork sweaters. So beautiful as are the sheep, dogs and wool. What an exciting place to be.
