Knitted Wearing Apparel Adult: Honorable Mention
Beautiful knitting -- beautiful shawl. Dark color tends to mask intricate stitching.

I'm over the moon with getting a blue ribbon for the Lisa Souza Zen handspun. Honorable Mention for the shawl was a little surprising, but I understand. I agree with the comment about the color. That's okay, I'm back in the blue, baby! I'll be heading to Sacramento to see them on display in July.

California State Fair
July 12-29
1600 Exposition Blvd

  • Congratulations on the handspun. It does look gorgeous. Your shawl is fantastic too & I guess the competition must be very keen.
