Dig out one of your unfinished objects and turn it into a finished project.
Use your own hand spun yarn except for embellishments, but-tons, etc...
Finish the project you started. You may have to undo part to achieve that end. ie: turn a long sleeved sweater into a short sleeved sweater because you ran out of yarn on the second sleeve but NOT turn a sweater into a hat or shawl.
If you are one of those spinners who spins as they knit, you may introduce new yarn from the same source as the original yarn of the UFO.
A short history - how old (best guess), when started, who for, and anything else you want to add. Keep it anonymous.
Judging will be people's choice.

The Black Sheep Handspinners Guild of Ithaca NY, host of Roc Day, is interested in promoting and continuing the art of handspinning all kinds of fiber.
Member interests range broadly within and beyond handspinning, from fiber plant farming and animal husbandry to dyeing, blending, knitting, crocheting, lace-making, weaving, felting, fly-tying, bow-string construction and beyond.
We look forward to celebrating Roc Day with you on January 10th!
