Alice Springs Beanie Festival

I’m back from my trip to Central Australia and I’ll be blogging all about it in the next few weeks. Upon landing, I immediately made my way to the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. It’s an annual winter event in Alice that’s dedicated to knitting, crochet, beanies, and other crafts. It’s the one event where you look out-of-place without a silly hat.

There were a range of workshops available, and many industrious people of all ages were about doing their thing.

There were thousands of beanies for sale, knitted by people from all corners of Australia (I bought a few), and the best were displayed in an exhibition at the art gallery.

It’s quite amazing what one can make out of wool. Pigs, people, kookaburras…

Even a frill-necked lizard. Now you wouldn’t like to meet that in a dark alley.
