Congratulations. :)

(thinks) What does "Reserve Champion" mean, exactly?
-the redhead-theredhead on October 5th, 2004 10:29 pm (UTC)
Grand Champion is judged the champion skein of the entire division (the Novelty Division is one of the divisions in this case, which had 6 classes), while the Reserve Grand Champion is like first runner-up for the entire division.

Ah. So if the champion skein is unable to serve in its capacity as champion, like being found on the cover of Nylon Monthly without its twist on, the Reserve Champion takes over?

This was too funny *grin* I ended up posting it to the spinningfiber community.

fabulous! at the rate you're going, you'll be able to wallpaper a room with those babies within the year.

*shudders* I don't think I've ever met any knitter (or weaver for that matter) ambitious enough to try to wallpaper a room. Although you could get some really nifty effects...and the insulation would be pretty nice...darn it!

Maybe a very small room *smile*.

I've entering another competition in November, and am working on new ideas for skeins to spin and send.

**chuckles** I just had someone tell me to contact you concerning yarn and so I looked through your journal and what do I see, but that you were at the Taos Wool Festival the same time I was.

Talk about a very, very small world.

Anyway, I am needing approx 2758 yds of worsted weight (approx 65.66 yds per oz) for a sweater project I have in mind. Would you be able to provide this amount? If so, how much would you charge? Something vivid and fun would be nice for the dyes - reds, blues, greens and purples - the more vibrant the better. Those are my hues. :-)

Anyway, let me know, eh?



Oh, by the way, s&h would be to Austin, TX.
