The Back to Back wool Challenge has been on my to do list for years but something always comes up and I miss it. But this year I put a big red cross on the date and I finally got there. I wasn't disappointed.
Basically, for those of you don't know what the challenge is all about, a sheep is shorn, the fleece is spun and the yarn knitted into a jumper right in front of you and against the clock. This jumper that the shearer is wearing is the end product and took the ladies just a little of 6 hours to complete. The pace is frantic! As you can see, at one point, moments before the end, there is one lady still knitting while two others a sewing up.
