I myself enjoyed a bit of knitting on my cardigan called Vonica. The yarn I was using was Cascade 220 Sport in a natural color, 100% Highland Peruvian wool. Combined with wooden needles, this yarn is great for an in-period craft.
I had a really great time at the faire this year. The faire is filled with plays, musical performances, yummy food, craft and trinket booths and a general atmosphere of revelry. And although it rained the first weekend, I still had a blast all four days.
