I know...I know...it's been a month since I last posted. School started again for me, and I just haven't gotten around to it. My projects did well at the fair. Although I didn't get a Grand Chamption or Reserve Grand Champion, I did get two first place ribbons. My neck-down sweater got a first place.
My mittens got a first place...and my butterfly shawl got a third place. The judges didn't make any comments on my cards, so I'm not sure what they didn't like (or liked less) about the butterfly shawl. I already have my project for next year in mind, so I just need to come up with the $90 for the yarn because it's something that I can't spin myself...especially with classes going on. I'm counting the months until I'm done with that.
In the couple of weeks between the end of summer classes and the beginning of fall classes, I managed to finish two pairs of socks (each pair worked at once on two circulars). I really like working two socks at once on two circulars...they seem to fly! The only thing I don't like as well is the short-row heel instead of the gusseted heel; it's a good trade-off, though. I'll try to get pictures of these pairs of socks posted this weekend.
Well, back to fixing dinner and reading homework.
