And also some ribbons......
Today was the day I was at the Evergreen State Fair all day demonstrating knitting and spinning. It was loads of fun, even if my bottom is a bit sore ( you were right about the cushion, DH!) from sitting on bare folding chairs all day. But, the most exciting news follows.
You might remember that last year I entered two knitted items into the fair for the first time. I got a blue ribbon for my socks and a white ribbon for my sweater, and tons of good information from the judging sheets. This year I entered six items; three into spinning and three into knitting. These were the items:
Farmer's Market Cardigan:
Norwegian Rose socks:
Handspun color-progression socks:
A skein of handspun, Juliespins BFL/Silk "Stained Glass":
Heart-to-Heart Beaded Scarf:
Here are the results:
Farmer's Market: Blue ribbon and Merit award
Norwegian Rose: Blue ribbon
Handspun socks: Blue ribbon
Handspun Ishbel: Blue ribbon
Skein of handspun: Blue ribbon and honorable mention award
Heart-to-heart scarf: Blue ribbon, merit award, and presentation award
I am totally excited.
