Up for a Road Trip?

Next week I'll be headed down to North Carolina to teach classes at the Fall Knit & Crochet Show -- I'm so excited.  Will you be going too?

Unfortunately, there's a schedule conflict -- I can't be in two places at once.  And this is true for several of my CGOA Chapter members as well.  If you are planning on going to The Big E to visit us on Connecticut Day, please note, for the first time since 2002, we will not be there.  The Fall Knit & Crochet Show takes place the same time The Big E fair opens!  Maybe this gives more reasoning that cloning could be useful ... I'mjustsaying....

It also means I did not enter any items into their judging ... but my son, Dee Jr., did!  If you go, keep an eye out for these photographs:  praying mantis, dock, and summer storm:

This is his second time entering his photography into competition; I'm really proud of him! For a 12-year old kid, I think he has a great eye!  Now, if only I can get him to take photos of all the yarn & crochet projects I need ...   If you'd like to see more of his work, click here.

Also at The Big E, check out the demonstrations being offered by artisian Crista Grasso of AberTortoise.com ... she'll be there on September 24th in the New England State Building. Crista taught my Chapter how to create beautiful beaded stitch markers last year!

If you're not at The Big E then I'm hoping you'll be at the Knit & Crochet Show with me!  :)

I remember your entries from last year. I wanted to get a closer look at the navy vest to see how it was put together but the volunteers said I couldn't. I thought the Ling collar looked like a Doris Chan design and based on the comments on last year's post it would appear it was and you (lucky lady)know her. Last year was the first year I entered and thought the judges were tough on crochet.
This year I was surprised not to see your name in the awards list online, but lucky for me I scored a 1st place for my sweater this year and the Webs/Valley Fiber award too. I found your post googling Webs/Valley Fiber Award. I'll be adding you to my list of blogs to read.
