Sydney Easter Show ….. No. 6

28 March 2013

Big drum roll please for the BIG winner:

Cabinet of Excellence - finest lace shawl, less than 4ply

This shawl created by Helen Taylor won the Margo Chick award for the best knitted piece at the Show (Margo Chick founded the NSW Knitters Guild) and it also won the Frances Binnie Award, which is for the best item in the entire Arts and Crafts competition.  That includes painting, sculpture, ceramics, leather and silver work etc.  So a wonderful achievement for this excellent knitter.  I don’t know what the pattern is or the yarn, but it’s 2ply at the most (laceweight). It may be finer than that.  

Beautiful knitting.

  1. Congratulations Helen. Lovely!

  2. That’s lovely. Well done,

  3. I just can’t believe the concentration this must require! Is the shawl going into some permanent exhibition?
