Last minute stuff

I finished the sweater for Ricki - just in time for the fair. The gloves? Maybe next year... :-)

The back

Yarn: Fleisher's Knitting Worsted 100% wool (from the Salvation Army store - I'd guess this yarn to be from the early 60's, but I'm having a hard time finding info about the company...they had a professional soccer team that folded in 1925, but that's all that I can find)
Pattern: my own - saddle shoulder aran done in the round
Buttons: white roses from my button stash

I'll get a picture of her wearing it the next time that I see her. She starts kindergarten next month, so she'll have a sweater for school.

I only have 3 fair entries this year, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Kevin's taking my entries to the fairgrounds on Sunday, since I'm going to be at Knitting Camp. :-)

I still don't have a contest entry...

Now I have to pack! My show-and-tell is going to be fairly boring this year; everything that I knit is either going to be at the fair, sent to KnitPicks, or given away. I printed pictures of everything, though, so at least I'll be able to show something.

My boarding passes are printed and my yarn and needles are packed, but I still have to pack my clothes. I'll have pictures from camp in a few days!!

Have fun at knitting camp and look forward to hearing how your entries did at the fair.

Here I am imagining your first night after the buffet (did you have lasagna? ours was wonderful!) And all through this weekend will be thinking of what we were doing two weeks ago in 2.75.... Looking forward to your wonderfully detailed account!

Having fun reading your "before camp" post. I still can't believe how much knitting you get done! It was great meeting you at "oft-timers" this week and I'm looking forward to the post.
