The travelling exhibition from the Alice Springs Beanie Festival is on display at Floriade. After watching Better Homes and Gardens on Friday night, WM and I worked out the only day we had available to visit Canberra was yesterday - so we did!
The highlight for me was, of course, the beanies - knitted, crocheted and felted. I'd like to show you lots of photos but it would be a breach of copyright. Please go to the above websites to see some samples. I also bought Colours of the Country: Celebrating ten years of the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. It contains many photographs, a written history of the festival and some crochet and knit patterns [and one beanie from the exhibition on the cover]. The book is available from TAFTA for $25.
