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.
