See, here is one of the Indigenous ladies making a basket.
Here are Emma and I (last year) notice all the hats in her arms....she just needed them all. We did spend a small fortune trying to support indigenous knitting artists, but come to find out a bunch of the hats are made by regular white Australian ladies, not that that is bad. Their work was stunning. Wool, cashmere, alpaca, hand dyed, felted. It was overwhelming all the hats.
Anyway....I wish you all could be here too. We would have such a great time trying on silly hats. I hope to see Wendy and Tambur...I talked to Melanie and she said she was going to be there. Best even of the year!
Oh and my Chili has been simmering away for most of the day. Last year my husband and I took two of the prizes home at the 4th of July party, that is held on the 28th of June. His won for best tasting and mine won for most hot. Last year I used lamb in the chili, this year I have goat. It smells pretty good....
Ok, take care and let me know if you want some crazy knit hats. I plan on purchasing several!
