Whew, busy times!

Sorry I have not posted here in a while. Make sure to follow my other blog. I've already talked about the Sedalia Fiber Festival there, so I won't repeat it here. Although I didn't want to say ther, but YAAAAAAAAAAAY I WON I WON I WON my yarn won best in show!!!
My ribbon, my yarn, and my prize: 10 skeins of undyed yarn!! To be fair, there were only 3 people entered. I also won 1st in several categories by default, and 2nd in one where there were only 2 people entered (not everyone entered every category). So I ended up bringing home 14 skeins of undyed yarn. Now all I need is my business license and I'm set!

So I've been busy preparing for Sedalia, and also for the cultural celebration we had at work. I represented Scotland!

I wore my Stewart tartan kilt.
I shared some super-awesome fun facts about Scotland, like the fact that 14,000 of its residents are huge enough nerds (I say that in the most loving way possible) that they put their religion on the census as Jedi.

And I did a wee bit of Faire Isle knitting.

It has been a very busy and tiring weekend, but also very fun. I'm looking forward to relaxing tomorrow. Whew!

Your yarns were beautiful - - truly beautiful - - and deserved to win! Enjoy the undyed skeins. I'm sure the Sam will learn to like the smell of vinegar eventually. :)

Nerd question now - - to whom does the Darth Maul belong???
