Vendor Fashion Show

On Friday the vendors gave a fashion show. This show was given to display items that could be made with their yarns or they were examples of kits that could be purchased. The models are all volunteers, not professionals. The photographer was just an amateur, too.

The cape was knitted in three different panels: different colors and stitch patterns which don't show up well.

I really liked the white cardigan: crocheted but not in any typical stitch. The blue sweater was lightly cabled and the lace shawl was so delicate you really needed to be close to see the pattern.

The blue skirt with the uneven hem draped beautifully. The blue cape was done with yarn called Stuff; different yarns tied together in a skein. it also draped beautifully. The variegated sweater had a lot of shaping. The bottom shawl was knitted on giant needles of gigantic yarn. Someone said the gauge was a stitch to 3" and was done in no time. The skeins were the size of pillows.
