Squee! Bendi third

G'day all!

I've arrived home from Bendi - thanks for taking me up there and lugging stuff for me, Toni!

I was so excited (when I remembered to go check out the woolcraft room - only took me about two hours to remember to go look for the stuff I entered...).

Nathan's jumper (sweater for Americans, not a pinafore) won third prize in its section!

It's missing from the pic because it was modelled on the catwalk!

LOL The poor young man wearing it is somewhat smaller than DH so it rather hangs on him. You can even see it in action! I almost jumped up and down squeeing but that would've made my pics and video even worse...




I also won a voucher for a couple of days at Tarndwarncoort, aka Wendy Dennis' place, aka the home of Polwarth wool at the Ravelry breakfast this morning. I had swapped my door entry bag from 39 to 42 and 42 was called up third! (39 was not called at all - how lucky was I????)

So I'll be having a lovely couple of days down at Wendy's place sometime in the next few months - maybe around my birthday given that I'll be still doing cancer stuff over the next three months... Thanks to feistywench on Ravelry for organising it all. (Someone tell me if I have her handle wrong. Hmm that sounds dodgy!)

I'll be back with more pics and stuff soon but we have a family dinner tonight, not here thank heavens because our place is turning into a shell of what it was - DH is having a lovely time demolishing the kitchen, laundry and dunny area. Plus I've not had a chance to take pics of the stuff I brought home cos it is bitterly cold out, cloudy and very windy, AGAIN - I hate this northerly wind that we've had for most of the last week. But I'll share my bounty soon. I hope I can tell you some good news soon too :-)

anon!

  9. Can't believe you got a third and you got to see it being modelled!!! Hooray for you. Did you get much in the way of stash (she asks as a leading question....)

  10. wow, that sweater is fantastic. The only time I tried to knit one for my then boyfriend (now husband) my mum had to finish it ;).

  11. Yay for you and Nathan's jumper!

    More importantly was to see you looking well after what you've been through.

    Hope you didn't fall in a heap afterwards and upped the stash level into the bargain :)

    Congrats, dear. Shame the model was only about 2/3 Nathan's size - the jumper was getting awful close to a dress...
    Have a wonderful time when you go to Wendy Dennis' place too. I'd reckon it will be VERY dangerous for a spinner and dyer! And don't forget the camera - people don't believe you when you tell them that her sheep wear cute coats in the paddock - stops them getting so much vm in their fleece, but some people assume that for some bizarre reason, that her sheep are "delicate" and wear coats for warmth ... Takes all sorts..
