On Sunday I made my way to the Skagit County fairgrounds to drop off my knitting. It’s on the stack behind the woman taking submissions, in two quart Ziploc bags.
I had to make my way through a group of other knitters who were apparently standing around waiting to stare avidly at the next person who came along to drop off their knitting. It was a little intimidating, that much eager judgmentalism* in one place so early in the day.
I won’t find out how I did until I actually go to the fair on Thursday. But I did learn that every submission gets a ribbon, which is hilarious!
So I will certainly get A ribbon. But which one? Tune in Thursday to find out!
When I was frantically steam blocking the crap out of the top margin of the Cabled Feather Cowl last Friday, something about it struck me as wrong. It just didn’t look… it’s kind of… something was… OH.
I suddenly realized I’d had it inside out for ages. Including in the last picture I posted of the finished object.
I think you’ll agree it looks a lot better with the right side out.
* That’s a word, right?
