Walls Show 2017

Hello everyone, happy Friday! I’m back with the final installment of our trips to the Shows – this time the Walls Show – there are others which we wont make it to but these are the three which have the Colourbox in it so we always go! Last Saturday was not too bad a day weatherwise, there were a couple of showers while we were there (you can see some offending clouds above!) so me and Sandra had a fine drive out to Waas.

Me and Sandra judged the Colourbox and the most of the knitwear at the show, this is only the second year we have done the Colourbox at Waas so it is still small but growing so we were pleased to see the entries, there was a good amount of entries in the other knitting so we had our work cut out for us.

There were lots of amazing Fair Isle and Lace to be seen..

Again once we had done our judging thing we went for a look around at all the animals and other entries..

This was a very friendly kitten in the pets section..i think Sandra would have taken it home if she could!

And then we also made friends with the Goats (there is another version of this photo in the Shetland Times today – just know I set it up and the photographer swooped in!!)

I really enjoying going to the different shows and seeing whats similar but also different about them all. We were quite lucky with the weather this year but for our judging we are always inside so its fine for us! I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos from the shows, we have already chosen the colours for next years Colourbox and people have been buying them already so it bodes well for next years entries. Happy Knitting!

PS>> Have you started your Bousta Beanie yet? We are 5 days in our KAL and lots are on the needles on Ravelry already!

    Is the list of colours for next year’s Colourbox Competition available? I’d love to see them.

    I wouldn’t know how to judge knitwear and patterns, without my personal taste getting in the way! Some of the colourways I spied in the displays would put me off. How do you do it?

    What a treat to see these photos and your commentary of this Show. Thanks for sharing and also for the colours for next year.

    These photos really draw one in and make you almost feel like you are there. The knitting is lovely yet again! Wonderful that the colourbox challenges are drawing in more participants each year!

    I am amazed at all the fencing in the one shot…it looks like this show has a very large amount of animals up for judging. Is this normal for all the shows? We don’t seem to have such large numbers of participating hooves/feathers in our country fairs, on this side of the pond.

    I love your photography and appreciate you sharing it.
