Knit Knack Takes Great Lakes Sheep & Fiber Festival

Drunken Monkey Press

Wooster's favorite knitted turtle took the Wayne County Fairgrounds by storm this past weekend during the Great Lakes Sheep & Fiber Festival. Not wanting to be outshorn by his wooly brethren, he donned sheep's clothing to join in the festivities.

Early in the day, Knit Knack was pleased to find a yarn company bearing his name. He spent a fair amount of time admiring their fine linen yarn.

There were plenty of friends to be made at the festival, including a group of very fuzzy bunnies.

Knit Knack made a special connection with one particular bunny in the group.

He was a little intimidated by the alpacas. He did, however, attempt the alpacas' nasal honking noise, but his lack of any nasal structure whatsoever seriously thwarted the attempt.

Knit Knack was surprised to discover that he had the only green face in the sheep barn's sea of brown, black, gray, and cream colored sheep faces.

One of the vendors at the show happened to be a milliner, and Knit Knack stopped by to try on some of the original new hat styles.

This one was certainly a crowd pleaser.

Forget Where's Waldo... it's time for Where's Knit Knack?

Knit Knack met an amazing artist named Stefanie who was kind enough to let him pose with her artwork.

According to Stefanie, this is a portrait of a turtle disguised as a sheep, disguised as a turtle.

After a long day at the festival, Knit Knack found a wool filled mattress for a refreshing nap. Although the day was exhausting, he is already planning the same trip for Memorial Day Weekend, 2008.

I know everybody is going to say it, but the sheep costume is unbearably cute. How on earth do you come up with these things? I'm glad to hear the fiber festival was such a success.

LOL Looks like a very big day for a little turtle.

I kept consoling myself all weekend with the mantra "Fiber Festival 2008, Fiber Festival 2008." Though nothing will beat Knit Knack's tour, 2007.

Dude, that sheep costume is seriously cute! I had to go back and read the history of Knit Knack and his holiday clothing. Very, very clever, indeed!

This is simply too cute. That turtle has more personality than any person I know. I love him!

That is so much fun. I didn't have a cute knit turtle, but I went to a Sheep and Fiber Festival in Waynesburg, PA recently. Now I really wish I would have had an adorable knit turtle to take pictures with.
