This weekend I went to Rhinebeck with my knitting buddies. We began with breakfast at Pete’s Famous, a tradition Kris has had going for years. Here are Jacie, Jenni and Tracy in front of some gorgeous trees. The weather could not have been better.
I finished my Katarina sweater on Thursday night, and I am very pleased with how it turned out.
Even better, my Slither handspun won second place in the novice class.
What’s that up in the corner?
Jacie’s Valeria shawl won first place for small handspun item!
Jacie continued her streak with a blue ribbon in the spindle spinning contest, and Jenni was third! Go team go!
On day two I wore my handspun Shalom, which was made with Spinner’s Hill fiber that I got at Rhinebeck last year. I went to show the ladies at Spinner’s Hill, and picked up a new ball of fiber.
You’ll see me wearing something blue next year!
