Today I got some good news. I found out around 11:30am from my blog-friend Carrie Penny that the results had been posted for the judging on the SC State Fair website. Screw work I was checking that website to see how I did!
My felted handbag won second place in Any other knitting not listed category.
My Bad Ass Knittin Bag won first in Handbag, Embroidered category. However, I think it was the only entry in that category. I'll still take it and I'm proud! They didn't have to give me anything for either one!
In other news I'm learning how to make hats on double pointed needles. At first I was intimidated and even a little scared/nervous. I mean, those needles are really pointy! What if I poked myself in the eye or made a shish-ka-hubby? It all worked out though.
I'm happy to report that no husbands, cats or dogs wer harmed during the knitting of these hats. Michael says he feels like I'm trying to give Hermione a run for her money knitting hats for the house elves.
