The Alice Beanie Fest 2010

I’m a bit late posting this year – why is time whizzing by at such breakneck speed?

So…. it’s that time of year again when all the beanie nuts come out of the woodwork to show off their creations at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival & what a wonderful collection of talent there is to see again this year – take note of my cyber friend, Megan Jack’s entry… she receive a well deserved special mention for her amazing beanie ‘Under Ones Sun’ in the Loveliest Madcap Category – hopefully one day I’ll get to visit this fabulous Aussie event….

Here are my entries for 2010

‘Blue Mountains’ – A freeform Crochet snood – lots of bullions, spirals, tunisian patches & a scattering of beads to add some bling

‘Country Life’ – is an upcycled beanie made from an old woollen jumper that has been felted then cut & sewn into shape – corkscrew tassels added to the crown to finish

  1. Oh, you lucky thing… I hope it sold it too – thanks so much, it’s great to know that at least it was noticed amongst the thousands

  2. Beautiful hats Renate !! I’m sure they will have been snapped up by the many patrons of this years Beaniefest.
    May we both manage to get there next year, and finally meet. I found this site, whilst searching for anyone posting pix of this years festival
    Just notice that the title of my hat has an extra ‘s’, in it I don’t think I wrote it like that, at least I hope I didn’t. ‘Sposed to be “Under One Sun” ! ? lol
