Yesterday in the comments Martha asked, “Wait, Sunday was even more exciting? How could that be?” I’ll tell you how it could be more exciting – Sunday was the Sheep to Shawl competition and my good friends were competing.
Here we see Betsy, Vicki, Terry, Cheryl and Kelly each doing their part for the competition. Each team had 3 hours to start with a fleece and end with a shawl. They were required to have a theme and The Gogh Gogh’s theme was “Starry Night” or something like that. They took their inspiration for the shawl from Van Gogh’s painting and they ran with it.
They painted a gorgeous warp in advance of the competition.
They knitted sleeping caps and made pajamas to wear as costumes.
They won the blue ribbon!
And made a really gorgeous shawl to boot. It doesn’t get any more exciting than that, Martha.
It was lots of fun to watch and I’m so proud of my friends. Next year, though, they’d better watch out. I think there will be a new team in town. Hee hee!
