It’s official, folks. Yours truly has finally broken out of the “Highly Commended” ghetto with a SECOND PLACE ribbon at the Easter Show for my Rhiannon socks! It feels… anticlimactic. And what’s up with that display? I blocked those socks to perfection, and there they stand (!) all lumpy and wrinkled and weird-looking. I guess maybe they were trying to show off the front cable? I’m told that overall the displays are a much higher quality this year, but that my socks were one of the few sour notes. Sadly, Bokaclava and Sam Sawnoff didn’t win any prizes, but I didn’t really expect them to. (I had hoped that Bokaclava would be displayed on a dummy head! Alas, not..)
I’m working the Knitters Guild stall at the show this Saturday afternoon, so feel free to pop in and say hello!
