A brighter note - BLUE ribbons for ME!


From my spinning class last spring I got lots of wonderful fibers to play with - I spun up this and then decided it would be really pretty if I plied it with











THIS -

I spun up this hand carded fiber from some angora locks that I bought a couple of years ago at Black Sheep Gathering.







And plied it with the grey to make THIS - which, along with a whole bunch of other samples, I crocheted into a "hobo style" bag. (which, of course I don't have a picture of ...but you'll see it soon!)

Long story short - I entered the bag in our local NW Washington Fair and got an email from a friend who was nice enough to check on my entries for me and I got a BLUE RIBBON!

I also go a blue ribbon on a skein of handspun from some of the fiber that I brought back from BSG this year. I am very excited! WooHoo!

Congratulations on your blue ribbon! I am so terribly sorry that I am so late in coming over to tell you how sorry I am that Neelix went to the Bridge. I guess my brain has just been in disconnect mode with everything that has been going on lately. I am truly very sad that Neelix is gone and I feel a very deep sympathy for you.

I love the soft color variations in your plied yarn, Tina. VERY pretty!
One of these days I'm just going to have to start playing with COLOR.....

Congratulations, Tina! I am so jazzed at your ribbons! I knew you could do it! YAY!

(Now if we can get The Shepherd to give you some of those fleeces he's got stashed....) heeheehee

I don't think there will be any way to keep Tina out of those fleeces now! And why not? They are doing no one any good just SITTING there! Spin on!

Congratulations - that yarn is gorgeous! Our fair is next week and I've spent today getting my entries ready.

BTW, I've been waiting to hear how Luna's fleece did there, too!
