Not just any competition either. This is the Woodex 08 national competition. DH entered in the 'novice' category as he has only been turning for 18 months. He came 3rd!!!! He won a gift voucher to spend on more wood and got a certificate. By the way, the man presenting it isn't a midget, DH is a giant.
PS Yes, I knitted the jumper DH is wearing : )
