2010 Knit and Crochet Festival

Wow, the festival is over. It's like Thanksgiving dinner so much goes into the planning and poof it's over. I worked at Highland Alpaca's booth this weekend at the festival. We put a lot of planning into the yarn we made, colors, natural and hand dyed. Patterns to offer and what to bring to sell other than yarn plus what specials to have that weekend. I met so many people that passed through our booth. So many creative woman and men who loved to knit and/or crochet. I loved hearing the stories of what they made out of the yarn they bought last year. I'm trying to collect pictures for the next newsletter. Alpaca socks and yarn were the most popular. Once you put on a pair of Alpaca socks you don't want to take them off. In fact between Jim and I we have about 15 pair.

Above is part of the booth. These pictures really got a lot of attention. How can you resist such a fuzzy, fun looking animal.

Robyn Chachula, who is an international crochet designer was kind enough to sign a few of her books for us. The black sweater is from her book and was made by Diane Halpern. In fact if you can see the red sweater on the front cover it is the same sweater.

Above are some of the luscious yarns we had at the booth. These are the natural colors.

These are some of the patterns we offered free with the purchase of yarn. They got a lot of attention and questions.

We got a lot of questions about coming up for a visit. The answer is yes, you can visit the farm and meet the Alpaca. They have over 100 now on the farm. It's an experience you will never forget.
