A single from one of our alpacas, Bandit,
and a single of silk that I spun from purchased roving.
Both yarns were finished this spring.
We went to the opening day of the fair last Friday. I was joking with Hubba, telling him that we needed to go see my ribbons.
Both yarns are better than what I entered last year and there are a lot (A LOT) of very good fiber artists around here. So after receiving constructive comments last year, I really was just hoping for good marks.
Then, from a distance, I saw this...
and then this...
I'm so excited about the blue ribbon for my alpaca as well as a special recognition from the local weaver's guild... especially after getting no ribbons last year. :-D
I'm also very pleased with second place on my silk. This yarn was challenging to spin.
Both yarns received nice comments from the judge.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
