Best In Show sweater.   The yarn is spun by Betty Chu.   It's a fine spun two ply yarn with one ply English Angora and one ply kid mohair.   Betty's aunt L. Chao provided the wonderful knitting.  The award is given, more than likely, to the wonderful knitting than the spinning.   The credit goes more to L. Chao.

A 100% Angora shawl made by Betty also won the first place in the "100% Large Wearable" class.  The pair of 100% Angora glove made by Betty and her aunt L. Chao were the winner of the "100% Small Wearable" class.
