And we even had cute shirts

Dear Mom,
Saturday night's tragedy at the Indiana State Fair understandably cancelled all fair activities on Sunday, which meant there was no Sheep to Shawl competition at the fairgrounds. Lives were changed forever and a little spinning and weaving contest is nothing in the shadow of that. Still, Team Ewephoria was disappointed not to be able to compete after so much went into preparing for the day. And even though we were the only adult team competing, we were anxious to complete the task of carding, spinning and weaving a shawl in 4 hours. We will be ready next year for sure, and hopefully more adult teams will join us.

On a happier note, my Dragon Wing Shawl is finished and thanks to your floorspace, is blocked and modeled here by cooperative Elle.

Little projects on my needles now, bigger projects swimming in my brain. I feel a bout of startitis coming on.

Beautiful shawl! That's quite an accomplishment to finish something that big. (I'm having trouble finishing much of anything these days, partly because startitis lives at my house.)

I love your shawl. What beautiful workmanship. It will look stunning when you wear it out on the town with a fancy dress! I would love to tackle a pattern of that size.

I read about the stage collapse and didn't realise it was your State Fair. What a terrible tragedy for all.
Your shawl is delicious Kim, you are so talented with those needles..
