Kim and I are ALWAYS standing at the entrance of the Creative Activities Building right at 9am for the opening of the doors. Not this year. It reminded me of the many times in recent years I have missed hubby finishing at the Birkie. The bus gods were not with us. We got there shortly after the place opened, though we did take the time to scarf down a corn dog for breakfast! 😉
The first thing you see when you walk in is a big boat. It was one of the entries and did quite well!
The only thing was that it blocked the entrance to the building and created a bit of a bottleneck.
The hunt was on to find our entries. This was a strange year for me as far as knitting is concerned. My Dale of Norway was such a time eater I didn’t get as many things done this year. Loyal readers of the blog will recognize most of my entries.
I was very pleased this year. Roosevelt, Window to my Soul, Vogue Hat #5, and Dale of Norway won first place ribbons. My Elephant Hat and Scatness took second. The winners in those categories were amazing. The sweepstakes went to a circular lace shawl.
Kim’s entries were displayed very well and showcased her flawless knitting (elephant hat and submarine sweater).
The winner of this year’s Penelope Knitters Award for best gloves went to a fellow Camper – Lucy Norman. We saw the gloves at Camp and knew she would get this award. Just stunning!! Congratulations!!
So, a fun day! The weather was picture perfect and we left exhausted. I will probably go again next week with hubby!
PS – We tried the Macaroni and Cheese Cupcake at LuLu’s and definitely recommend it!!
