Den første aften spiste vi ude. Under halvtaget mens det regnede. Bagefter havde vi den traditionelle garnpakkeleg.
It's not just the knitting festival - Fanø is just such a nice place!
We ate outside on the first evening. Under the roof while we watched the rain. Afterwards, we held our traditional yarn-gift-game.
The summer house was as pretty as they get. Build "outside" a tiny old house, which is kept at one end. The sea wasn't too far away, but we never went there. Had too much other stuff to do!
"Centrally in Sønder Ho" was the house with a market place. The central thing is an old joke. One of my first time on the knitting festival, Lene Holme Samsøe was explaining how she lived "centrally in Sønder Ho". This village is so small that you will miss the center if you blink, and I laughed so hard, because I don't believe the words "centrally" and "Sønder Ho" was ever used in the same sentence before.
folkedragter, men dem stødte vi nu ikke lige på.
There were more yarn markets - even with music! Beautiful traditional music in Sønder Ho. In other places you could meet people in traditional outfits, but we never met them.
Jeg har skimtet sæler i det fjerne før, men bestemt ikke set nogen så tæt på!
While waiting in line for the ferry, we had the fortune of seeing another great attraction - the seals!
They were very close and sooooo cute when they moved around on the sand.
I've seen a few far away before, but not this many or that close!
Det var så utroligt hyggeligt at være på Fanø, og skulle du være på de kanter, så kig forbi. Hvadenten der er strikkefestival eller ej! (De har hele TRE garnbutikker. Gode!)
We didn't mind waiting in the line for 90 minutes. We had the seals, our knitting, lunch and great company!
It was so wonderful being on Fanø, and if you are close by sometime, please take a look. Knitting festival or not. (They have THREE yarn shops on the island! Good ones!)
