And the Winner Is...

Kim Parkinson, of Cornerstone Fibres fame, based in Kingston, Ontario, happens to be a very talented spinner. She not only drop spindle spins the most exquisite lace weight yarn, she also spins some neat and tidy worsted weight. Kim Fed Exed some entries into the Fingerlakes Fiber Festival skein and garment competition - no easy feat with customs red tape. She managed to win herself several first place ribbons, including Best Garment, and Best Skeins in two different divisions, along with a couple of seconds and a fourth. We're very proud of Kimmie. Her handspun skeins of my fiber fairly flew out of the booth on Saturday and Sunday. Kim really makes my roving blends look fantastic and very attractive to customers.
