Djerriwarrh Festival

I have just returned from the Djerriwarrh Festival. It is a festival held in Melton each year. We watched the parade for an hour, went and had a look at the craft stalls, bought some showbags, and Isabelle had her face painted by her teacher who taught her in 3 yr old kindergarten. She is actually supposed to be smiling in that picture.
I even popped over to visit with the Machine Knitters Association just to
see what sort of things they made. They had bolero type cardigans in Isabelle's size for $5.00 each, so I bought the last 2 they had left. The one pictured is actually a beautiful silvery blue/teal color, and I also got a white one which is made from a cotton and is a bit tighter in the arms. They will be perfect to wear over summer. I also bought a little bag made out of colored sock yarn for $3.00. Unfortunately the picture will have to wait, the camera ate the one that I took.
Also thank you to the people who have finally decided to leave me a comment on my blog. I am enjoying reading some new knitting bloggers and having a look at all the wonderful things that they create, and I have entered all of your names in the contest too. If the numbers keep increasing, a 3rd prize of some yarn will be added too!

Also, please go over and visit with Gillian. She has received some unfortunate and sad news, so please go and give her a hug and warm wishes. She needs them right now, and we are all thinking of you Gillian!

Oh, it seems you had such a great time at the festival - Isabelle looks so very cute on that pic! And I really love the bolero you got for her, the price for it really can't be beaten, and I'm sure she'll look so gorgeous in it!

I'm certain my daughters would have enjoyed the festivals tremendously too and the face painting is just so cute!

Five bucks! Lucky find!

What a cute face she has. The bolero was a bargain, it looks lovely.

Sounds like you found some good treasures at the festival -- that little cardigan is adorable! (Machine knitting makes me grumpy. It seems so unjust that it could crank out that sweet little sweater in about 1 percent of the time it would take me to knit it!)
