I'm back... with some Redhill Show news...

Unfortunately I have been quite ill for the last 5 or so weeks so no blogging, no knitting, no gardening and very little else really.

Still quite fragile, but sincerely hoping for a return to health and vigour over the next few weeks, Mind, I write this lying on my bed (where I have spent much of my time) - thank goodness for laptops and long cords!

The only thing that I have managed to do is enter the two items, which I had already completed, into the Redhill Agricultural Show (pink socks and green mohair jumper). A poor effort considering my earlier ambitions, but the best I could do under the circumstances and I only did that with some encouragement.

It was with some surprise and pleasure that I won prizes for both - a first for the socks and a third for the jumper. At a later date (when I have more energy etc...) I will properly photograph them - but in the meantime here are some photos from the Show (apologies for the poor quality due largely to shooting through plastic).

my socks - with second place getter above left, and third place above right.

... and the first and second place getters (both made of wool so eligible for the statewide competition)

So sorry that you have been ill, Susan - best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Congratulations on your show prizes. So excited for you that I've just shown the dog the pictures because I had to tell SOMEONE! She was suitably impressed. Well done! :D
