Summer Horseshow and Local Fair

DD participated in a dressage show this summer and was rewarded for her hard work with Wyatt:


I love his ribbon. DD placed 4th out of 13.



I've been working on several projects as of late that have kept me away from posting. I finished a lovely little shrug for a 2 year old. I've finished another baby gift project. I'm still wanting to get back to some of my other projects, but they are warm on the lap while knitting so perhaps they'll be left for the cooler weather.

Now that I have a bit more time I'm working on tweaking a another bag pattern design that uses my own hand spun. Pattern writing is all consuming. The devil is in the details as they say. I'm also thinking about an idea for a shawl for the autumn. I'll be trolling through some stitch treasuries to get some fresh ideas.

A few weeks ago I attended one of our local fairs and submitted some hand spun.

Wow! Congrats on your ribbons! Of course, having seen your wonderful handspun yarn in person, I'm not at all surprised. Congratulations to your daughter too. I think it's so cool that she does dressage.
