Birds aren’t the only ones who head south in the winter. Last weekend, Austin knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners flocked southwest to Boerne for the Kid 'N Ewe fiber festival. More than 40 vendors set up shop at the Kendall County Fairgrounds, filling 30,000 square feet with fiber arts.

Fiber artists of all varieties were in attendance. Heavenly Fiber, who made their fiber festival debut at Yellow Rose earlier this year, brought selection of colorful yarns as batts. Knitting Rose was just one of several vendors to feature blends of bison fiber with wool and other fibers for yarn that gets softer with wear and always stays warm. They also had original patterns from designer Melissa Lemmons on display, giving not just the supplies for knitting, but suggestions as well.

There were also vendors who had no fiber, but the tools to turn it into your next project. Hokett Would Work had hand-crafted tools of every variety from seam rippers and shuttles to bowls and keychains. Jeri Brock, who partners with Yarnorama for a spindle of the month club, brought her spindles and other woodwork crafting accessories. The Paige yarn store was also in attendance, along with Tinsmith's Wife from Comfort. There were even alpacas, sheep, and goats, the source of most of the fiber on display.

If you weren't able to attend this year's festival, mark your calendar for next year. In the meantime, click on the slideshow above to see photo highlights from this year's vendors. For more on Austin knitting, literature, and more, visit my personal blog, the knitlit twit.
