I've actually known most of my results since the end of July, but I was waiting to find out how my photos did, plus get pictures of my stuff 'in situ'.
I got second place for the photo of Calvin whittling, and a "Staff Favorite" ribbon (those were new this year, along with "Judge's Favorite"). However, I didn't get to keep the fancy ribbon! :( I placed third with the jester costume, and fourth with both the skirt and my Notre Dame De Grace sweater. I'm quite pleased with the sweater, as there were at least 7-8 sweaters in the category, and they only place 4 of them. I went to judging, and the comment the judge made about it was that she wasn't sure if the 3 needle bind off on the outside was a design element or a flaw (it was part of the design).
I've been to judging a few times now, and I've found that, in general, the judges really don't know what to do about non-conventional techniques. I have found it very helpful to watch, however, because they will point out things good and bad and give helpful tips. Otherwise, you'd be pretty lost, as no notes or comments are written on your tags.
On to next year!
