Some "Fair-ly" exciting news~ a post by Kelli
Oh another exciting time to be at the Skagit Fair, in Mount Vernon Washington. I'm happy to say I'm a 2nd place winner, (that would mean a silver metal) and I got no problems with that. I talked to the overseer of the stitching items, and she told me it was the hardest judge she's ever seen.... tookout her magnifying glass and all. More exhibitors got a 'particpation' ribbon then ever before. That means I got great feedback on my shawl and I'm glad to have it and glad to have my red ribbon. I'll let Melissa post her findings on her beauties. Oh and yeah the KAL, I do need to step it up and post some progress...but it might be all finished ~gulp~, but not blocked yet. With those 'world-wide games' that are going on and knitting the Prairie that is so quick and easy I don't get to the ole internet like I usually do. I hope everybody is enjoying our KAL! I do want to know others progress.
