Rhinebeck results

I entered three skeins in the skein and garment competition and am pleased to report I won two ribbons :)

2nd place in single spun 100% wool  -spun on a drop spindle

4th placed in dyed 100% single spun wool also spun on drop spindle

Rhinebeck does not have a seperate class for spindle vs wheel spun yarn which I think is a little unfair but whatever ;)  Wheel is usally more consisitant due to the mechanisims involved.

Heres the picture of the winning skeins :) I'm still very proud of myself!
