Fair and Fiber UPDATED

Star has let us know that all three of the entrants to the spinning competition at the Fair got third place. This must be due to the new judging rules. But it's nice that we all did well. Yay, us!!

UPDATE: Reposting the picture of red ribbon socks, since Star thinks they might have been the high scorers, even if they didn't get a blue. I am unduly proud of them!

Perhaps this also bodes well for my Second Place socks, as there may not be a First Place...well, a girl can dream, can't she?

Fiber-wise, I received my Superwash roving in Hang on Sloopy from Crown Mountain Farms today (it was sent on Thursday, great service!) and it is even more luscious in person. Thanks, Teyani!! I have my next colorway all picked out...

Camera is still in D.C., though, so pix will have to wait. Not much knitting going on as I have been going gangbusters on my freelance transcribing job which will (eventually) allow me to stop worrying about the next couple of months of income. I love freelancing, cousins, writers, country music and liberals today!! (only one of those is unusual for me...)

As soon as I get the Spunky Eclectic singles plied, it's all Sloopy all the time for a while. Until I start practicing for the spinning contest. Man, that's a week from Sunday!!! I had better call to check on the tickets.

Hope all is well with you!

I think your second place socks are actually the top finishers. I don't think anyone got first. I looked and looked for it but couldn't see it. so, congrats!

Thanks!!!!!! Yay!!!!

Guess you had to get all the points or something to get a red this year. I will be more careful next year...

Congratulations to you, too, on your yarn!!

Congratulations on all of your ribbons! Are the socks you entered the multi-colored fair isles that you were working on earlier this summer? If so then I'm sure they placed at the top of their category, they were lovely. I do hope that you'll post pictures of the entries and their awards once your camera returns from DC. Freelance work sounds fabulous. I'm still debating on what type of work to do once we move. My youngest daughter's classes will be 2 & 3 full days on alternating weeks (kindergarten). This eliminates most jobs right away. Cheers!

I work at home when the kids are asleep, so it works out for me. Don't know what there might be in your area, though. I'm hoping that my industry (transcription) will go all digital in the next couple of years so I can get sound files, transcribe them and email them back from ANYWHERE. That would be nice. Most of the stuff I do now, I have to pick up VHS tapes at the office.

Good luck, Heide!

Oh, Star, I mean, to say "to get a blue." Duh.
