Yarncat Fiber Trip 2009 (5) MardiLaat Craft Fair, Tallinn (continued)

(continued from yesterday...)

Apart from looking at the yarn and all the woolly stuff, knitters themselves also worth mentioning too. I have never been to a craft fair where so many knitters are actually in action...





Of course, there are also weavers in action since this year's theme is weaving afterall...



During the whole time when everyone is browsing around looking at different crafts, there is Estonian live band playing on the stage...



Now, let's look at some interesting woolly stuff..

Beautiful felting works well done...



Felt dolls...


Beautiful Estonian knitting with nupps, lying around everywhere...



I know I said 'woolly' stuff, but apparently linen is a very common to use in the Baltic states, I see them everywhere. I didn't get any linen yarn at the end since I am not familiar with their nature and I don't know what to do. But I will keep in mind to try them in the future.



As I said yesterday, there are so many other crafts in the fair that are so interesting as well, like woodworks and ceramics...







Natural beewax candles...



Ceramic beadings...



Metalworks...



There is one thing I am not too used to though...the fur traders. Having animal skins lying around freaked me out a little...though the guy's outfit is really nice, I think.



(to be continued tomorrow...)

I'm really enjoying your blog! I absolutely love craft fairs specially in another country when you've no idea what to expect at each stall + prices are usually a fraction of what they are here.....

also thanks for coming on Sunday and bring Carrie - I really enjoyed it. It got pretty crowded later ...........
