Just heard back from them–I’m one of the finalists! I have to send my shawl in to them by May 12. I’m going to the UPS store to post it, either today or tomorrow.
I’m psyched! I don’t expect to win the contest–the shawl has a flaw in the knitting–but am hoping to be one of the four runner-ups. It’s a gorgeous shawl, regardless, and I’m honored to be one of the finalists. Tonight I’m going to write up a card explaining the symbolism of the shawl.
Meanwhile, I’ve ordered copies of James Beard’s American Cooking and The James Beard Cookbook. I’ve been needing a good general cookbook, and was impressed by the first book when I read it at Mike’s.
Bike is in the shop today for a badly-needed tuneup…waiting impatiently for it to finish!
