Posted by Ashley: What a whirlwind the past 24 hours have been! Yesterday was the Fleece to Shawl day where 6 teams competed, 3 of which were all kids from the 4-H Fiber Club that my mom leads! Representing the club were The Twisted Sisters with their theme of "New Blossoms," The Fibering Five with their coffee inspired shawl, and Fiber Frenzy with a 101 Dalmatian theme! After many months of planning themes, creating displays, coordinating practices, hand spinning warps, fixing equipment, dyeing the yarn, and creating beautiful practice shawls, it was time for the live event! My mom always tells the kids that their goal should be to work together to finish and to have fun... Anything else is a bonus and this year they had several bonuses! One youth donated her ewe's fleece which won Best Fleece! Madi received the weaving award! And overall, the kids all worked together to finish and were awarded Champion, Reserve Champion, and 3rd place teams! We couldn't be more excited for all of these kids!
