And the FAIR Winner Is.....

State Fair sign

So.....today Liz calls me to see if I got my fair results. Well, naturally Patrick has my mailbox key & is eating with his friend at Buffalo Wild Wings. Enter panic & anticipation. As it turns out, Liz got Honorable Mention on her photo & man, that is HUGE because I saw how many entries the photography department had & it was...overwhelming. Loads & loads of people entered photos. I have no idea how many people entered knitting.

So Patrick got home & got the mail. And OPENED my results (cardinal sin, me thinks).

3rd. I got 3rd. My friends tell me the shawl category is pretty competitive & that is ridiculously awesome....I don't know how to feel. I hope it has some notes & feedback because I'd like to see what they say. And what beat me. Dude, I'm so competitive. This is a side of me I wasn't really aware of!

But I'm happy - really I am. I can't wait to see it displayed at the fair. That's a big deal, Y'all!

Hey, I think 3rd is fabulous, especially for your first entry! Besides, don't you know those knitting competitions are totally about who you know? Obviously, yours was so good they overlooked the fact that you hadn't sucked up to the right people!
