Hibiscus Cardi updates....
Hi Anne: You don't know me, but I love your patterns. At the beginning of the year, I tackled your Fair Isle Hibiscus, and I love it. I completed it for a dog show in Alaska in March. I show Cairn Terriers, and I was working hard to make sure that my baby girl, Ivy, would finish her championship with me in your sweater. It worked -- I'm wearing the sweater in Ivy's championship photo!
Then I entered it in our local County Fair (this week), and it took Best in Show of the handknitted adult sweaters. Wow! I'm so proud and wanted to thank you for the lovely pattern and the lovely challenge. It was my firs attempt at steeks!!
Have a great day!

Wanted you to know that your lovely Hibiscus Cardigan pattern earned me a Grand Champion AND a Best of Show Ribbon at the Montgomery County Fair this weekend. The judges were gobsmacked and immed. came to Rav to find out how to get the pattern. Thanks for making such a lovely piece.
Thank you to Heidi and Liisa for taking the time to drop me a line. I do appreciate hearing that you enjoyed knitting this design - and I must say that your sweaters look absolutely gorgeous - great job ladies!
