Holy crap! Some of the girls over on Ravelry went to the Easter Show’s “Arts Preview Night” tonight, and they reported back that my Road to Golden won a Highly Commended Award! That’s so awesome! My first official knitting ribbon. Of course, now I can’t sniff that my work is unappreciated in its own time. It’s a trade-off.

Update: The awesome Ailsa took lots of photos, and there are a couple of Road to Golden in there. [1, 2] I’m stoked that it got displayed on a mannequin instead of being stretched all to hell on fishing line. But this is weird: is my jumper holding hands with the one next to it??

Update later: The official results are now up!

  1. Well done! I was hoping/expecting you might get something! Its a wonderful jumper.

  2. Yay that’s awesome! 😀 Congrats

  3. Well done!

    Sad to be sniff-less, though.

  4. Yay!!!! You want to come with on Friday??

  5. Definitely. I’m happy to get up at the crack of dawn!

  6. YES!!! Well spotted you!

    The purple jumper behind your road to golden is SO trying to hook up with it. But it appears RTG only wants to hold hands with the jumper next to it.

    I checked out the credentials of both suitors, and I’d suggest when road to golden finishes her law degree you fully endorse the marriage between her and the purple knit ..

  7. I was thinking maybe meet at Strathfield Station at 9am?

  8. I’ll be coming from Central, so I can meet you guys on the platform.

  9. Congrats! I’m probably going on Friday too. No doubt we’ll be the only ones there (oh, along with about 50,000 other people!!)

  10. Congratulations again!
