Each toy takes many hours to make. I make them in my spare time when I'm not outside chasing chooks or growing vegetables.
I use patterns that I have collected over the years. I also design some of my own patterns which can be both challenging and rewarding. Right now I am working on a yoga mat tote pattern . Below is a photo of the finished item.

Knitted pony took out 2nd place in the "Crochet Toy" section at the while crochet chook took out 3rd place .
Knitted pig took out 2nd place in the "Knitted Toy" section.
I'll be better prepared for next years show, I'm already in the process of picking out other items to make and will try to have items made in time so I can enter one or two items per section.
It is fun to be part of the show and I recommend anyone who can knit or crochet to have a go. Regional Shows like this rely heavily on exhibitors otherwise there is no show. Next year is the 150 year anniversary of the Bathurst Show so it will be a big deal.

There is always lots of interesting things to look at in the show, plenty of stalls and exhibits, lots of beautiful animals, heaps of rides and even some wood chopping and sheep dog trails.
