Color Match

Finished the pink dishcloth, so started another one. Sat down and realized how much this yarn "matched" my skirt in colors. I made this skirt 'way back when I was around high school age or so. Didn't really like it then, so didn't wear it for a long time, but have enjoyed wearing it these last several years. Colors: Blue, green, white, lavender and pink. the pink in the yarn is barely there, between lavender and white colors, but there is a faint hint of pink at that spot.

Fair Entry

The last three days were our local fair. I just flat didn't do much this last year in the way of "creativeness." Nor did I feel like baking. But I did get the "groovy-ghan" afghan finished at one point, so I entered that. Early on Thursday morning, before work, I took it over and got it entered .... my lone entry at the fair this year.

Later that afternoon, all the exhibits were judged, then we were able to go in the community building and see the results. I got a red ribbon! That's second in the class, and a $5 premium.

But I noticed that after they judged it, they folded it wrong-side out, so the back side was showing. So I re-folded it, and later got another picture of it.

Ah, that's better.

Then I have a tradition, that after picking up the exhibits on Saturday, I bring them home and take pictures of everything. Of course this year it's just the one thing, but with a ribbon and some money.

Maybe if I start planning NOW, and get in gear, I can have a little more to enter next year!

When the Power Goes Out .....

When the power goes out due to a storm (last night), and it's evening, and you want something to do, you might knit by lamplight.

Switching Seasons

Finished a red-white-and-blue diagonal dishcloth, starting a fall-colored golden "eyelet" one.
