Dapto show time yet again and some lovely entries in the flowers, cakes, fruit and veg but down the other end in crafts where I was lucky to get 2 1st places and 3 2nds. Grand sum of $19 towards the ipad fund.
The Fish Tail pattern from Nancy Bush's Knitted Lace in Estonia became my scarf entry in some Flinders Island Fleece black 4 ply I brought at a camp way back in about 2005. This was purchased at the 2nd Guild Camp and it was at the Stanwell Tops Centre. The judge had about 5 scarves to judge and each time she was getting drawn back to the black one. Was it really knitted yes can prove that but by hand umm yes it seems to be well I got a 1st place for it. Now I think I should pick another pattern out of the back section of the book.
My beanie got a 2nd and both the scarf and the beanie classes I sponsor a $10 1st prize. I did hope it would draw more entries but alas there was 2.
Much more excitement happened this week in a Sleepy town called Port Kembla where in 1939 on the 11th January Bob Menzies was labeled "Pig Iron Bob" and 75 years on they are doing a documentary on the Dalfram Dispute. I was busy that day doing some music work so didn't get to go and be one of the extras or families that stood up for the Wharfies of the day. 8 weeks before they refused to load Pig Iron bound for Japan.
Now to wait for the Kiama Show results sometime today or tomorrow.
