3... 2... 1!!!

The California State Fair Creative Arts Fiber Art Show Exhibit results are in:

3rd Place - Crocheted, Wearing Apparel Adult
Cords and Cables Cardigan
Ravelry project details

Judge's comments:
Well done. Nicely finished--the closures are wonderful. Choose a more difficult pattern to achieve a higher place.

1st Place - Knitted, Any Other Knitted Item
Odette (Mystery Stole 3)
Ravelry project details

Judge's comments:
Lovely pattern and design. Good tension. Beads are a good embellishment.

And the piece I can't show you yet? It placed 2nd to Odette in the Knitted, Any Other Knitted Item division and class.

For a week that started out with many challenges--so many that I thought a new lanyard was going to be the highlight--saying it ended on a high note is an understatement. I'm on the moon!

  • I was lucky enough to see your jacket up close and personal when you had it on display at a yarn shop on the pennisula. I can't believe the comments of the judges regarding the difficulty level of the pattern, let alone that because it is constructed side to side makes it even more difficult from a fitting perspective. I give you a 1st Place.

  • My theory about the crochet is that the judges would see anything "lacey" as more difficult than anything jacket-like. I agree with Donura - side-to-side? Crocheted cables? Recalculated sleeve caps? Definitely a first! Congrats on your three prizes, you deserve them all!

  • How exciting. Your work is beautiful, it's very nice to see you get rewarded for your efforts!

    You should have entered your beautiful pineapple doily in the crochet category! Maybe the judges would have found that to be more compelling? What an odd comment, that jacket is awesome.
