Coming in Third place in the "Knitting-Open" category (Class 1033)- my Green Leaf Blanket!
Coming in Second place in the "Knitting-Open" category (Class 1001)- MiL's Green Socks!
And very surprisingly, coming in FIRST place in the "Knitting" category (Class 1002) and placing SECOND in the SECTION (HOLY CRAP!!!!!)- The Knee Socks!
We're both so excited!! Congratulations to all the other winners at Stampede- your stuff is beautiful!
I should also mention that MiL entered a very very cute little baby sweater- and although it wasn't a ribbon winner, it sure was cute so of course I'm posting it here. (Trying to tell me something MiL? ;-))
Making the big wins even more exciting and special, our little monthly knitting group, the "Knit Wits" made a point of going down to see the prizes in person and as a group. We've all been knitting together for nearly 2 years. It's such a supportive, creative and strong group of ladies, I'm so very lucky that they welcomed me into their knitting flock. It was only fitting to take a photo! (missing 2- missed your Rhonda and Sylvia!)
(From L-R: Robin, My Mom (Shirley), Me, MiL (Phyllis), Nancy & Mary) (You'll notice Robin presented both MiL and I with "Stampede Necklaces" to wear in honor of our wins!)
Next year ladies-- I expect you all to enter!!! (And yes mom, you too... I know you're new, but keep it up, you'll be amazed at your progress! We've all made big strides in the last 2 years knitting together!)
All there really is left to say is YAHOO! (And see you next year at the Stampede!)
