The Good, The Bad And The Ugly18 April 2014
Yes, it’s that time of year again – Sydney’s Royal Easter Show.
I really miss going around with David Reidy and talking about the entries but I still go along there and peer into the cabinets. I did enter three items this year but by “enter”, I mean I paid the fees and received the paperwork. The knitting never made it as far as the Show (in fact at the rate I’m going, they may not be ready for next year).
But there was the usual mixture – some beautiful items, so well-crafted they take your breath away (well they do if you’re a knitter), some fairly mediocre entries, some nice zany ones, and some ……..! As usual there was at least one item that we couldn’t identify. I remember David and I staring at something for ten minutes one year trying to work out what it actually was (and the catalogue didn’t help). Well we had another one this year that kept some of amused for a while. I still have no idea.
If you’re on Ravelry, there are some excellent pictures here. Courtesy of Jody – thank you.
And to those people who often ask me about David and how he’s doing, I bumped into him a couple of weeks ago and he’s fine.
