Wow, I'm so happy at all the entries in my #100 sock contest. I'm not reading most of the emails because I don't want to be influenced to knit faster or slower, but I've got them all waiting to be opened when I finally finish.
While you are waiting for the big finish, I thought I'd show you a few things.
First, although I indicated otherwise yesterday, these are NOT goats.
These are sheep. Jacob sheep to be exact. And yes, I knew that. I did take some pictures of very similar looking baby goats, but alas, they stink. So sheep, not goats. Duh!
You might remember I wrote about the knitted scarecrow the Atlanta Knitting Guild made and entered into a contest at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Well, I finally got over to the Garden yesterday to see all the scarecrows, and while some of them were very wonderful, I have to say ours was the best. And the judges thought so, too, because it won first prize in the non-professional category!
Isn't he cute! The crow is knitting the scarf, while the scarecrow is holding a pair of big orange mittens. My square is the big purple one on the back of his shoulder.
Once I go through all the pictures I took, I'll post a few of the other scarecrows. They were really imaginative.
I guess that's it for tonight. Keep those emails with your guesses coming. I'm working hard to finish, and can't wait to see who wins!
