Fiber Arts Friday: Results

I finished my shawl on Monday.  Dropped it off at the fair on Tuesday.  Judging was Wednesday.  The fair opened on Friday evening.  We went on Saturday evening.  :-)

There are two options for entering knitted items in our county fair.... Spinning and Weaving and Needlework.  I opted for Spinning and Weaving for two reasons:

  1. I wasn't certain how big my finished shawl would be at the time of entry, so I wasn't sure which class to enter.
  2. I was using hand-spun yarn.

The competition in the Spinning and Weaving department was exceptional and I am humbled to have been awarded Reserve in the Non-Woven class.

Now to prepare this piece for it's ultimate destination, The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, and to start thinking about next year's entries.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

Fiber Arts Friday: Submitted

I spent most of last weekend finishing my project.

It was close.  But one good thing about summer is that blocking only took a few hours.  :-)

I'm always amazed by how nice things look after blocking.

I dropped it off at the fair on Tuesday.  I find the results out tomorrow.  Fingers Crossed for good comments.  :-)

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
