And that my friends would be a blue FIRST PLACE ribbon! As you can tell from Sean's face, he was so thrilled for his Mama! I am officially an 'award winning crocheter!' Yes I am excited, and also a dork! But YAY me! Wanna see 2nd place?
In my memory I was remembering the blue one, but really its the white one that was in my section. I also saw this really, REALLy cool thing:
This the best in show for yarn (I think thats how the breakdown was - since I didnt see any yarn clothing BIS. Anyway, this tapestry, for lack of a better description is done in what looks like Icords all manipulated into circles and lines and zigzags to create the picture. Brilliant and beautiful - I am happy to loose BIS to this creation. Anyway, moving on.
I know that I really should have kept up with the unfinished scarf, since I said I would and all. However, I'm not so god with the sticking to things once I start to not like them anymore. So, I started a sock. Whoops! I got this pattern from the Sensational Socks book, which I love but it is so easy really! Knit 1 row, K2P2 the next row, and repeat, using a normal sock pattern. I like how it is turning out, ribbed, but with the little purl bumps showing intermittenly through the recessed bits of the rib. Anyway, hers a pic so far. BUT, I did get some crocheting on the scarf done at the crochet meeting yesterday - go me.
Thats it for now, more later.
