Speechless

I finally made it out to the Finger Lakes Fiber Festival this year. It poured rain almost all day on Saturday, but everyone made the best of it and still had a great day. This is a very nice festival and I'm already looking forward to next year!


Just for kicks I decided to enter the Marcel sweater and Sunshine's hat in the knitting competition. 


Marcel's sweater received a blue ribbon for Knitted Sweater of Handspun Yarn and the Excellence in Knitting award.


And Sunshine's hat a blue ribbon for Knitted Hat and the Best Use of Handspun in a Knitted Item award.

I was blown away and so incredibly flattered.

I loved seeing both of your pieces in the display. But particularly the hat. Fabulous work! Congratulations!

Susan Foss said...

Congratulations! Your sweater is gorgeous. I made the Market Day sweater after seeing yours in a previous blog. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Amber Heather. I also lengthened the sleeves; I added a bit of length to the bottom and a couple of inches to the collar, as well. I purchased spalted oak buttons from Etsy that I love! Have been curious to see your choice of buttons; beautiful! I'm sitting here just drooling over the hat!!

Well done! And remember - you didn't "win" anything - you earned it! Winning is for random chance. You built those items with extreme care. Great to see it recognized.
